Well, now, it looks like Samsung has finally fixed the annoying bug with the recent One UI Home app update on Galaxy devices. According to users on Reddit, they are now seeing the right apps, closed recently, in the recents menu suggestions including the third-party apps too.

Samsung phones could soon get Google Wallet Quick Settings Tile

Samsung hide Hotspot icon

Google Wallet could soon add its Tile in Quick Settings of Samsung phones. Pixel phones already feature a Quick Settings Tile, making it easier to access the Wallet app. This exciting news came from an APKTeardown that confirms the feature is under development.

Last month, Google Wallet rolled out a direct notifications function to Android devices. Now, the next significant development in Google Wallet is bracing to bring Quick Settings Tile to Samsung Galaxy phones.

Google Wallet’s version 24.26.x suggests that Quick Settings Tile for Galaxy phones is coming.  As Samsung doesn’t offer QS Tile through the Android system, Google is making it a part of the Wallet application so more users would benefit. Here are the stings found in the new version:

  • <string name=”quick_settings_tile_label”>Wallet</string>
  • <string name=”quick_settings_tile_default_subtitle”>Tap to open</string>

As the feature is hidden behind app strings, the release timeline is uncertain. We guess Samsung phones could get it within July itself. The future release of the Wallet app through the Play Store might deploy QS Tile for general users.

Google Wallet Quick Settings Tile

With the One UI 6, the Galaxy maker debuted a radically resigned Quick Settings panel. It brings organized shortcuts that are easier to access than ever. Samsung should bring a dedicated area for Google services shortcuts for user convenience.

Samsung Pay and Samsung Wallet apps are available on Galaxy devices. While the Wallet app is limited to storing cards and offering NFC payments, Samsung Pay/Wallet is acceptable everywhere, thanks to collaboration with local banks and card providers.

Google continues to enhance user experience in Samsung devices. At the recent Unpacked event, both companies came along and reiterated their deep ties. Google is also optimizing its apps for Samsung devices to offer an elevated user experience.

Android 15 could launch in August this year alongside the Pixel 9 series. Samsung will likely begin the One UI 7 Beta Program earlier next month. Meanwhile, non-Beta participants could receive new features announced in One UI 6.1.1 firmware.
