Facebook has implemented the ability to send and receive money on the Messenger app for sometime now, but it's restricted to individual users, and transactions possible only between one user and another.
Beginning today, Messenger users can send and receive money between groups of people on the app for free on both Android devices and desktop computers.
Facebook described scenarios whereby users can split bills for a group gift, allowing a group payment system in a new or existing Messenger group conversation, by simply tapping on the plus sign in the bottom left corner to find more features, and tap the dollar ($)payments icon.
While users can select a single member of the group or everyone in the group, and also choose to send or request money from a member.
Albeit, Facebook didn't announce the availability of the new payment feature for iOS devices, as it started with just Android and desktop, but hopefully users on iOS will be getting it soon.
