A new handy feature has made its way to both Google Pay as well as Paytm. The feature lets users split the bill with their contacts when they’re splitting the bill at a restaurant, for a gift or any similar use-case.
The feature eliminates to manually open up your calculator app to see how much each friend must pay and then have one person pay the main bill, while receiving equal sums from the other members. Here’s how you can easily split the bill with your friends on both Google Pay and Paytm.
Open Google Pay and tap on the “New Payment” button on the main page. In the subsequent screen, below the ‘Transfer Money’ tab, users will find the “New group” option. Click on this option.
A new screen will open up where you can add contacts to the group to split the bill with. You will see all your recent contacts and Google Pay contacts below. Tap on the contacts you want to split the bill with.

In the next screen users will be able to give the group a name and create it. Once the group is made, you will be able to enter it and see a ‘Split an expense’ button on the bottom.
After entering an amount to split among the members, you will be able to either split the amount evenly or enter a custom amount that a certain user must pay. You can also uncheck someone in the group if that member need not pay for the particular expense.
