An update for Trezor Suite, version 21.10.1, is now available. Simply open the Trezor Suite app and follow the update prompt to complete the installation process.
While Trezor Suite has long been more powerful than the old Trezor Wallet, this update introduces some final features that had not yet been incorporated into Trezor Suite. Now everything Trezor Wallet could do, Trezor Suite can do it too, and much more!
Namely, the outstanding features introduced in this update are Sign and verify and openness payment links in the Trezor suite. Czech has also been added to the languages supported by Trezor Suite for testing as a beta and further improvements have been made to the in-app user guide.

This feature is especially relevant for minors and anyone who needs to prove ownership of a particular address. Sign and Verify allows you to use your Trezor to provide cryptographic proof that an address is under your control. In some jurisdictions, providing proof of ownership is a requirement for scholarship withdrawals, and it is common in pool mining to claim the accumulated funds.
Sign a message from an encrypted address you own
To sign or verify an address, open Trezor Suite and navigate to the account you want to verify. Note that some parts do not support signing and verifying. Once on the account page, choose Sign & Verify from the three-dot menu next to the Redeem button.
On the Sign and Verify page, use the Sign Message tab to produce proof of ownership. Simply type a message to sign then select the address to sign it from the drop-down menu. Once both are settled, click Sign to generate the signature.
Confirm the message and address using your Trezor. The signature created by this process is a unique character string that can only be reproduced using the address keys.
All three pieces of data are needed to verify the address, so be sure to copy them all. You can copy them directly from the dialog, or just click Copy at the top right of the page to copy standardized output that looks like this:
-----BEGIN BITCOIN SIGNED MESSAGE-----
This is a message
-----END BITCOIN SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Messages can be signed using any available address and each address can be used as many times as needed.
Verifying a cryptocurrency address
To verify that a message has been signed by a given address, go to the Verify Message tab, paste the message address and signature details into the corresponding boxes, and click Verify.
If the signature is correct, the signing address and message will be displayed on your Trezor and a success notification will be displayed in Trezor Suite.
If the signature is not valid, an error notification will appear:
To optimize the individual user experience in Trezor Suite, some settings can now be adjusted based on local system settings. This means that the app’s language preferences and color scheme can now automatically change based on global preferences.
Trezor Suite has now also implemented Bitcoin Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) as defined in BIP-0021. This allows users to have Trezor Suite opens automatically by clicking on a bitcoin payment link. Activate Trezor Suite to open bitcoin links by clicking Accept when the banner prompt appears.
The next time you click Pay with Bitcoin, Trezor Suite will open and display the payment details in a notification. Manually copy the details as usual, or navigate to the account you want to pay from and open the send page and Trezor Suite will offer to automatically fill in the payment details.
