It has been a whilst since Samsung introduced the Digital Car Key support; for those who do no longer know, the feature depends on the ultra-wideband and NFC chips that are found on certain Galaxy models, which permits you to securely and safely unlock cars except the usage of the key. Despite Samsung making the technology a standard for cars like Audi, BMW, and Ford, the feature used to be restricted to one vehicle at that time. However, that is now altering since the company has finally expanded the aid to include cars from car companies such as BMW And Kia.
However, it is important to know that solely Genesis vehicles help passive entry since they can be unlocked with the use of Ultra-Wideband whilst the BMW and Kia cars support NFC-based unlock. You will have to take your phone out of the car and tap it close to the key slot to open the car.
For these wondering, the Digital Car Key is handy on only a handful of top-rate Galaxy phones. The Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy S21 series, Note20 Ultra, Z Fold2, Z Fold3, and the Z Flip three owners can go in advance and use the feature without any hassle. However, it is solely reachable in South Korea at the moment and we are now not sure when it will make its way to different countries.
Samsung has expanded support for its digital car key where it will now play nicely with more car brands and models, which include:
- Genesis GV60, Genesis G90
- BMW 1~8, BMW X5~X7, BMW iX3, BMW iX, BMW i4
- Kia Niro
Samsung has enabled the Digital Car Key function on some of its flagship models. Initially, the function was only supported with the Genesis GV60 car model. Now, Samsung has added two new car companies to the list. The car key can now be used with some premium BMW & Kia models. The company has today announced the key will support BMW’s premium 1 to 8 series, X5 to X7 series, Z4, i4, IX3 & IX series models. The support has also come to Kia’s Niro model and Genesis’ G90 car model.
To use the Digital Car Key function, you should download Samsung Pass on your smartphone. It is available in the Galaxy Store. Also, you can look for the car company’s official app for support. Samsung’s Digital Car Key only works with the Galaxy S21 series, Note 20 Ultra, Z Fold 2, Fold 3, Flip 3 & the new Galaxy S22 series.
