Update on SAMSUNG 321 app introduces local gov’t contacts nationwide

The app’s newest update includes a dedicated Local Government tab with more than 29,000 LGU contact details nationwide to assist users with their needs related to their barangays.

Last April, the SAMSUNG 321 app introduced a COVID-19 Hotline feature to help users with their concerns or emergencies related to the pandemic. Now, the app’s newest update includes a dedicated Local Government tab with more than 29,000 LGU contact details nationwide to assist users with their needs related to their barangays. Details are also found in the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) website.

Since its launch in 2016, the app enables quick access to a list of validated emergency contact numbers and locations all organized into categories such as Medical Assistance, Red Cross, Police Stations, Fire Stations, National Disaster Hotlines,  Motor, and Traffic Assistance, and most recently Local Government. The Samsung 321 app uses reverse geocoding to detect the user’s current city to list all barangays, displaying the contact details accordingly for convenience.

Calling the available numbers is made easy through the app’s straightforward user interface. By simply selecting a number, the app will proceed with the call directly. Standard mobile carrier rates for calls apply.

Samsung 321’s services must first be enabled through its in-app Welcome page or Settings. This can also be done through the Apps tab in Settings of the user’s Samsung device.

The app comes pre-installed on select Galaxy devices and can also be downloaded on the Google Play Store for gadgets running on Android 5.0 and up.
