    Apparently, the app has gone live today. However, I don't see it when I search in Galaxy Apps or the Google Play store.

    When I click for Check Update on my phone, it says to wait about 9 hours which is when I'm guessing the update for samsung pay comes to the active.

    It isn't in either of those.

    Who is your carrier?

    S6 active is ATT. I'm guessing that until we get the 5.1.1 (whenever that is) it will be in the update

    Not sure if it will have Samsung Pay. It seems Samsung has said no to a couple of people. I think the Active supports MST, but I can't find anything definitive concerning this though.

    Not sure what MST is. Same phone as the GS6 other than the fingerprint scanner

    That is Magnetic Secure Transmission. That is the thing that allows Android Pay to use something other than NFC and why any terminal that you swipe your card, will take Samsung Pay.

    This is technology that Samsung acquired, I'm assuming it is in the S6 Active, but if it isn't, it never will be. That is why phones before the S6 will never be able to use Samsung Pay but can us Android Pay, it is NFC.

    Also this is why Samsung Pay can be used around the world.

    I emailed samsung on this yesterday and they replied that as of now the samsung pay app is not compatible with the s6 active. I tied to load the apk and framework apk onto my s6 active but it would not install.

    Using Samsung pay it is good and useful enough to keep my S6 active in the drawer and have me deal with much shorter battery life on the S6. I guess I will use my s6 active when I take my kids camping...
