Now Send or Request Money on Gmail Web or Android

Sending and receiving money in Gmail is as easy as sending any other attachment. Either way, it's completely free for both of you.

Until today, you could reliably share photos and files on the go with Gmail app, but now Google is addinga new feature to its Gmail app on Android that brings the ability to share money, too.

"Whether you're splitting a dinner bill or planning a group trip, you now have a fee-free way to work out the details and settle up without ever leaving the Gmail app on Android, just like you can already do on the web," writes the team.

Yes, starting Tuesday, Google now lets you exchange money with anyone "not just people with Gmail addresses" by just tapping once on the attachment icon and then by choosing to either 'send or request money."

Recipients are able to receive or request money right from the email itself—without having to install another payment app. They can even "arrange to send the money they receive directly into their bank account," the team said.

Unfortunately, as always, this feature is currently only available in the U.S. "on Gmail on the web or Android."
