Venmo, the popular payment app that lets you send and receive money from your friends, has just rolled out a new feature that aims to make it easier to organize and share common expenses with others. The feature is called Venmo Groups, and it lets you create and manage groups of friends who share expenses for things like dinners, movies, trips, or gifts.
Venmo Groups is designed to eliminate the hassle of splitting bills, keeping track of who owes what, and settling up with multiple transactions. With Venmo Groups, you can easily add expenses to a group, see who owes what, and settle up with just a few taps. No more spreadsheets, no more apps, no more arguments.
Venmo Groups is also persistent, meaning that you can keep a running tally of your group expenses over time. This is useful if you have a group of friends that you hang out with regularly, and you want to keep track of who paid for what and when. You can also hide a group if you are not active in it, or if you want to keep it secret for some reason.
Venmo Groups is available for some users starting today, and will be rolled out to everyone else over the next few weeks. To use Venmo Groups, you need to have the latest version of the Venmo app on your phone. You can create a group by tapping on the “Groups” icon on the home screen, and then adding your friends and a group name. You can also join a group that someone else has created by accepting their invitation.
Venmo Groups is a welcome addition to the Venmo app, as it makes splitting bills with friends much easier and more convenient. It also makes Venmo more social, as you can see how much you share and care with your friends. Venmo Groups is a feature that many Venmo users have been waiting for, and it is finally here.
