Starting today, users in the U.S. will be able to send and receive payments using their PayPal account without necessarily having to leave your messaging app or having to bring out your bank details or something.

When chatting on Messenger, one can tap on the blue plus icon and select the green payments button to quickly send or request money.

PayPal eventually will roll out the service globally, which may take some time considering the massive user base of both companies: Messenger's 1.3 billion and PayPal's 218 million active users.
