Can we get Samsung Account id programmatically?

In our game we bind progress of player to id of account that is logged in on the device.
For example, in iOS version of our game we bind progress to the id of logged in GameCenter account, in Google Play version we bind progress to the id of logged in Google account.

  1. On Samsung, can we get id of Samsung account from code? Are there SDK that we can use for authentication and getting id?

  2. Can we use Google id for game that will be published to Samsung Galaxy Store?

  • On Samsung, can we get id of Samsung account from code? Are there SDK that we can use for authentication and getting id?

You would need Samsung Account integration and that is not available to 3rd party developers

  • Can we use Google id for game that will be published to Samsung Galaxy Store?

You can use Google ID for the version of the game that will be in the store.

I hope this helps,

For Samsung account, still not availaible. Use google ID.

Your Samsung account gives you access to exclusive apps, lets you back up, restore,and sync your data between multiple devices, and more. mypascoconnect You can use one on Galaxy phones, tablets,computers, and even TVs. Find your Samsung ID.

You can find it on your phone or a computer using the account retrieval page on the Samsung website. Enter your information and then select FIND MY ID. Your Samsung account ID (email address) will be partially displayed !

On the Pixel this returns the contact id of the phone’s owner. On the Galaxy the cursor is empty. I’m assuming this is because Samsung is using some proprietary version of contacts that is not exposed through the standard Android API. Can anyone confirm? Is there an alternative for Samsung devices?
