According to Meta, “Next week for Messenger fans in the US, we’re starting to test Split Payments, a free and fast way to share the cost of bills and expenses. To use Split Payments, click the “Get Started” button in a group chat or the Payments Hub in Messenger.”
“From there, you can split a bill evenly or modify the contribution amount for each individual — with or without yourself included. After entering a personalized message and confirming your Facebook Pay details, your request will be sent and viewable in your group chat thread.”
This means that not only will this help you split the bill, but you will also be able to send and receive the money using Facebook Pay, thus making it easier for you to do everything within a single app.
Since Facebook Pay isn’t a feature that’s available around the world, we’re not sure if there are plans to roll this out on a wider scale in the future.
