World’s most popular social networking platform Facebook keeps on bringing new features in its services for its users every now and then. Now it has come up with a new feature to benefit its users. The company has launched ‘Facebook Messenger Group Payment’ feature that is now available in the US. Though, earlier the company has rolled out a person-to-person payment feature in the Facebook messenger app, in year 2015. But now Facebook has announced ‘group payments’ in the app.
Starting today for Android & desktop, you are able to send or receive money between groups on Messenger app. In this regard Facebook said that “It’s free, simple, fast and secure. Whether you’re splitting a restaurant bill or chipping in for a group gift, all you need to do is go to a new or existing Messenger group conversation to get started.”
To begin with the feature you can tap on ‘plus sign’ button located at the bottommost section of the group chat. Also, you can find often used features such as location sharing, ride requests etc. Moreover, this is quite a useful feature for the groups who want to divide a restaurant bill or strike in on a purchase. Apart from group payments the feature also enable users to request for payments within the conversation.
It also offers you to add a description or note regarding the reason for the money. Just it’s need to tap on ‘Request button’ for sending request to group members. This is a secure feature and according to Facebook ‘the debit card information you provide is safe and secure.’
Moreover, though as of now this is a cost-free feature but exists in the United States only. The company is not into providing online payment but rather it is to offer users with useful services.
This is really an amazing feature from Facebook and hope it’ll be soon launched in other parts of the world as well.
