Facebook Messenger and PayPal initially partnered past year to enable customers to link their accounts and use PayPal to shop on Messenger. With the deal, users can now send and request money through Messenger, a new service that makes PayPal more accessible and convenient. This functionality will be available from the blue + icon visible in Facebook Messenger as a new Payments option. Unfortunately, you can only use it if you're in the U.S. - everyone else will just have to find other ways to spend their PayPal balance.

Messenger beta brings a couple of performance improvements and bug fixes, including the integration of call history and missed calls in one place. But Friday's announcement potentially expands PayPal's reach even further, allowing the payments company to potentially tap into Messenger's 1.3 billion monthly active users. Meanwhile, PayPal's service is already integrated into Apple's iMessage, and can be launched through the Siri voice-activated digital assistant. Consumers now want the ability to transact wherever they are and however they want, and PayPal is committed to being the best option to enable this.

When it comes to peer-to-peer transactions, PayPal comes first as the service is immensely popular over the globe with over millions of its users. Of course, you will need a valid PayPal account in order to start sending money to your friends and family, or request funds for that matter. This way you can easily send money and can make transactions through your PayPal account.

This PayPal feature is locked is U.S. and it also seems that this feature will reach iOS before Android. You can access this feature the same way you had pay with a card previously. We are not sure whether Facebook will make this feature available for the desktop users as well. Share your views with us in the comments.
