Today we’re bringing a new feature to Monzo Labs: Shared Tabs!
What are Shared Tabs?
Shared Tabs are a way of keeping track of payments you’d like to share with other people on Monzo.
So you might create a Shared Tab for a weekend away with your friends. You each pay for various things over the trip, add them to the tab, and then settle what you each owe at the end. We’ll do the maths for you, and make sure it’s all fair!
Why are we bringing this to Labs?
We want to give our community early access to this feature. Play with it, let us know how you’re using it, and if there’s anything confusing.
When will this come out of Labs? Is this a final version?
We don’t expect to make any major changes to Shared Tabs before we launch. So what you’re seeing now is more or less what we’ll launch with. We’re just giving you access a week or so early.
To use it:
- Opt in through Monzo Labs (you’ll need to be on app version 2.22.0 or above)
- Restart the app
- Head to the Payments tab
- Tap Request
- Tap CREATE A NEW TAB
You can add any of your contacts on Monzo to a shared tab. This will also turn it on for them, so they’ll be able to create their own tabs with their contacts.
- Share a tab with people who aren’t using Monzo
- Add non-Monzo payments, like using cash
- Add someone new to a tab once it’s been created
- Add a payment to more than one tab
- Use Shared Tabs with a joint account
These are things we’re aware of and likely won’t change before launch.
