Discover the Helium hotspot wallet app review: how to set it up, sync it, and back it up.  Learn how in this complete step-by-step guide.

Today, the Helium core team is excited to announce the launch of the Helium Wallet App, a single app to manage your tokens and identity on the Helium Network! Download today on Apple App Store and Android Play Store.

In February 2022, the Helium core team announced the future of Helium Apps: the existing original Helium App would be split into its two functional components of 1) Hotspot management and 2) token management. You can read more about that here.

As of today, the original Helium App is now the Helium Hotspot App for managing original Helium Hotspots*, and the new Helium Wallet App is for managing tokens and your identity.

*The Helium Hotspot App will continue to support non-Helium Hotspots until all other Makers release their Maker App or Dashboard.

The new Helium Wallet App is a culmination of 4 months of valuable input from our community. Since February, over 4,000 community members have beta tested the app and provided feedback on their experiences with it, and we’re incredibly grateful. Thank you!

Breakdown of Helium-related Apps as of June 8, 2022. Note that the Helium Hotspot App will continue to support non-Helium Hotspots until all other Makers release their Maker App or Dashboard.

We encourage all Helium token holders and Hotspot owners to download and switch to the new Helium Wallet App. Simply import the same 12-word seed phrase into the Wallet App. You’ll continue managing your Hotspot in other Maker Apps or Dashboards.

While the Helium Hotspot App will still be used for managing original Helium Hotspots, wallet-related functionality in the Hotspot App will be deprecated in the next 3 months.

Make the switch to the Helium Wallet App and take advantage of some of its key features today:

Import your 12 or 24-word seed phrase accounts that you created on the Helium Hotspot App. You can import a total of 10 accounts, view their balance and transaction activity, and send/receive transactions.

Import your Ledger account by pairing with it over Bluetooth. Payment and other transaction support will be coming soon.

Save your commonly used addresses in an Address Book and give them a nickname! Now you can be sure you’re sending and receiving tokens from the correct address.

Use the new Wallet App to connect to various dApps like Crowdspot and authenticate your identity on the Helium blockchain.

Vote on Helium Improvement Proposals directly in the Helium Wallet App! Avoid the clunky QR scanning altogether.

Already available on the CLI wallet, multiple recipient payments are now supported on the Wallet App. This is most useful for those that need to wait for a payment transaction to clear and appear on the blockchain before sending the next payment.

A full user guide and technical documentation can be found on our Docs.

Download today on Apple App Store and Android Play Store.
