Messenger is adding a bill-splitting feature for friends

Splitting bills sucks. Of course, paying equal parts is a satisfying conclusion to a shared meal. But figuring out how much that equal part is can become torture especially for those who never liked math. Some apps have already added new features which can automatically split bills for groups. Given how useful the feature is, there’s no harm in having another app that can do the same thing. Facebook has confirmed that Messenger is getting bill-splitting soon.

Facebook is testing the new feature in the United States for now. If you’re in a group chat, users can now divide a bill among other members, pay the bill from the app, and see who hasn’t paid their share yet.

For a while now, Messenger included more ecommerce features for the platform. For example, users can already send money straight from the app. Introducing a feature to split a bill does make sense, given what the platform can already do.

Besides the ecommerce feature, Messenger is also adding more customization features for video calls made in Messenger and on Instagram. Both parties can now mutually have effects applied to themselves. Finally, Messenger is adding “soundmojis” or what is essentially an audio-based emoji.

Facebook hasn’t announced when the features will debut in other territories outside of the United States.
