Facebook Messenger now supports group payments

As Mashable reported this week, Facebook messenger is seemingly unstoppable with recently released figures demonstrating that the service now has over 1.2 billion active monthly users. The service continues to diversify its offering to users, in a bid to keep them engaged on the platform for even longer. One more reason to do so is the introduction of in-group payments. Facebook introduced person-to-person payments within Messenger in early 2015, but today the company announced the feature is expanding to support groups, as well. The payments feature essentially works the same in group chats as in private ones, but now allows users to pay either everyone in the group or individual members through a click of the payments icon. While this is currently only available in the US, success and uptake would surely see this feature make it way across the pond and into European markets.
