Why we should start splitting our bills
When it comes to splitting the check for dinner, or any kind of bill in general, the old-fashioned divide-by-numbers method isn’t very practical. You could always go for one-third, two-thirds, one half or some other arbitrary measure… but that can lead to some pretty unbalanced results. And it’s not just limited to groups of two people! Imagine trying to figure out how much each person should pay when there are eight people sitting around the table.
How to split bills
I am sure you’ve been in that situation where you’re splitting the bill with food, drinks, or other expenses with someone and trying to calculate who owes what. The Google Pay trick will make it easy to keep track of your tabs. All you need is their email address, mobile number, or phone’s NFC (near-field communication) chip. When the time comes to split the tab, just open up Google Pay on your smartphone and choose Split Bill. Enter in how much each person owes and confirm when ready.

There’s always that one person at the table who decides they want to order more than their share of the meal, and then you get stuck with the tab. At least there used to be. No more, thanks to an easy new trick. Recently, one reporter found out how to divide their bill up into portions and share it with friends right from within the Google Pay app on their phone.
When should you use this option ?
Google Pay is similar to Venmo and ApplePay, but its unique twist is that it can automatically split any purchases with your friends. Here’s how: Open the app and select the Split option at checkout. You can invite friends by tapping Invite Friend, then select from your contacts or enter their email addresses. Once they’re added, each person will see their balance in the app when they make a purchase; when you’re ready to pay, tap on their name to authorize the charge.
