Facebook has introduced new enhancements to its payments service designed to improve its functionality.
The social network has offered a person-to-person payments service within its Messenger app for nearly two years, the Drum reports.
However, it has until now lacked a feature that enables financial transactions involving more than two people to be resolved easily.
With the added functionality, each participant in a chat log can either contribute a select sum, or bills can be divided equally between all those taking part in a conversation.
Commenting on the changes, product manager for consumer payments Partha Sundaram said: "It's 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 to get started."
Users can activate the payments service simply by clicking on the dollar logo included in the app.
