Only available in the US currently, Facebook has rolled out support for scanning QR code to receive or send money via Facebook Pay, even if users are not connected on Facebook. By launching this payment feature in the already existing messaging app, Facebook has ended the need to download any separate app or add new contacts to use this feature.

Facebook users can access the Personal QR code and Payment link on their messenger app by following these steps:

  • Open Messenger “Settings” and tap on “Facebook Pay.”
  • Then the user can share their Payment link or QR code to ask for send or receive money.
  • In the same way, you can also share your QR code or payment link with other users to request or send money.

2) Quick Reply Bar

The latest Quick Reply Bar in Facebook messenger makes it easier for users to access their conversation and reply on a photo or video without going to the main chat thread.

Users can simply tap on the Video or Photo and send a response through a Quick Reply bar at the bottom of the screen. If they wish to exit the full-screen media viewer, they can do it by swiping up and head back to their main chat thread.

The Quick Reply Bar feature in Facebook Messenger will enhance the users’ messaging experience and save their time, making it a better platform for all.
