According to Gadgets 360's latest report, the new Split Payments feature would be launched in the United States, making Americans the first lucky consumers to use the new Messenger function. 

To use this feature, Meta explained that you need to click the "Get Started" option, which is offered in your group chat or the Payments Hub. 

Once you are done with that, you can now divide the bill or modify your friends' contributions. After that, you must enter your Facebook Pay details. 

You will then receive a request, which can be viewed in your group chat, allowing other members to see the details.
