The new Facebook Messenger feature is currently only available to users in the United States.
Meta has announced the addition of a Split Payments feature to Facebook Messenger. As the name implies, this feature allows you to calculate and split expenses with others directly from Facebook Messenger. This feature aims to make it easier to share the cost of bills and expenses, such as splitting a dinner bill with friends. Facebook Messenger users will be able to split bills evenly or modify the contribution for each individual, including their own, by using the new Split Payment feature.


The company announced the new Split Payment feature in Facebook Messenger in a blog post. According to 9to5Mac, this new bill splitting feature is still in beta and will initially be available only to US users. The implementation will begin early next week. As previously stated, it will allow users to share the cost of bills, expenses, and payments. This feature is especially useful for those who live in a shared apartment and must split the monthly rent and other expenses with their roommates. It could also come in handy at a large group dinner.


Split Payments allows users to enter the number of people with whom the expense must be shared, and the amount entered will be divided in equal parts by default. A user can also change each individual’s contribution, including their own. To use Split Payments, go to the Payments Hub in Messenger or the Get Started button in a group chat. Users can modify their contributions in the Split Payments option, and a notification will be sent to all users who need to make payments. The request will be sent and viewable in the group chat thread after you enter a personalized message and confirm your Facebook Pay details.

Once a payment has been made, you can mark the transaction as ‘completed.’ The Split Payment feature will automatically calculate the amount owed after accounting for your share.
