Facebook’s Messenger app is soon getting a new Split Payments feature. The feature will allow users to divide the expenses between friends so that paying or getting paid back is easier than ever. Payments will then be processed via Facebook Pay to make things even simpler. Here are all the details about this new feature.
The new Spilt Payments feature is termed as “a free and fast way to share the cost of bills and expenses.” It will roll out for the users in the US, starting next week. There’s no word on whether or not it will be available for users in other countries.
Those wanting to easily split the costs of a dinner or probably the monthly expenses can do so either using the Group Chat or the Payments Hub in Facebook Messenger.
For this, users will have to move to the Payments option in a chat window, tap on the “Get Started” option, divide the expenses as per the need (it could either be split equally or as per a person’s choice), possibly add a message, enter the required Facebook Pay credentials, and the request will be sent to the group members. This split bill request can be viewed in the group chat.
