We’ve been able to send and receive money on Messenger since 2015, but these payments have only been available between two users. Now, with group payments on the platform, users can do a lot more – split a bill at a restaurant for example.
It was just the other day that users in the United States got access to Messenger’s AI assistant, M. Today, Facebook announced that it would be starting group payments between groups of people on Android and desktop. Again. users in the United States get the feature first. And it’s a really useful one, so I hope we all get it soon too.
Payments between groups of friends on Messenger are easy. Facebook explains the process in the announcement for the feature,
But that’s not all… as soon as a payment has been made, users will see a message telling them who has been paid. Also, group members will be able to check the “Request Details” in full. It’s safe, free, simple, and more importantly – secure. As long as you don’t get hacked. You won’t have to remember any card details or a password either. Glorious!
