Account splitting is currently only available to US users. It can be used in group chats, for example to split the bill for dinner at a restaurant. In addition, users can set the amount each person owes separately. The feature allows you to connect your payment details for a quick money transfer right from Messenger.

Users from all over the world have access to Disappear mode. To activate it you have to open one of the existing chats and swipe up. In Disappear mode, all messages, including GIFs and stickers, are deleted after being read by the recipient. To return to a normal chat, simply swipe back up on the conversation window.

In addition to the above innovations, Meta has added new voice message recording controls that allow you to pause or resume the recording, as well as preview the recording before sending it. Also, the duration of voice messages has been increased to 30 minutes.
