(WTVM)- Facebook announces that they will allow users to send money to friends via the Messenger app.
Messenger users can link a credit card to their Messenger account, and can send their Facebook friends money when they type a dollar sign in the chat box.
This new feature will be available in the U.S. in the next few months, and the service will be free. The service cannot be used by business pages.
Facebook now joins Snapchat and other apps that allow users to send money to anyone using the app at no charge to them.
Would you use this service? Do you think this is a secure way to send money? Let us know in the comments.
