Monzo Monthly Update: December

It’s the last monthly update of the year! Here’s what happened in November, and what we’ve got planned up to the end of the year…


Looking forward to see how paying anyone easily will work :face_with_monocle:

Hopefully locked pots don’t cause an influx of people asking cops for them to be unlocked as they were just testing it out :sweat_smile: . Great feature though, hopefully it will expand in the future to provide interest similar to fixed rate savers?

I suggested adding a feature that you could nominate a fellow customer of Monzo to have to authorise your pot to get unlocked


That would be cool!

There could be an initial period of say a day where you can unlock it without contacting cops? Just incase people set it up by accident.

I suppose Monzo Labs will find all this out.

Yes that is another good idea, though maybe a day is a little longer but a 30 minute ‘locking period’ or something like that


Looks good! :slight_smile:

Although no custom pot images this month :frowning: :disappointed_relieved:


Looking forward to locked pots!

Is this update emailed still? I no longer get them if it is, plus I can’t see a way of signing up for it if so. Thnks

There’s something on here about signing up to Monthly Updates that I just saw :slightly_smiling_face:

Locked pots will help me so much.


How will you be using them?

Really like the idea of the locked pots and doing the IFFT feature of rounding up into a pot!

Looking forward to this

Why necessarilly the IFTTT one and not normal roundup?

I did that last month, signed up but no email this month :confused:

I’m excited about being able to pay people with just a link. Feature request: can we use this to pay friends internationally. And can we choose the amount in foreign currency (eg the input is “I want to pay $10”).

It’s a good thing these blogs are here now. Last year hundreds of people ate their Christmas dinners then immediately decended upon the Monzo community to satisfy their boredom and were surprised to find tumbleweed blowing around with no devs in sight for weeks.

There was soon full blown rioting and it was collectively decided that Monzo weren’t doing anything and there was a big swing in sentiment.

Perhaps I’m exaggerating but there was definitely a wide-scale annoyance at lack of comms last December/January, so I’m glad to see this post and hope there will be another to follow in early Jan.

This year us innocent bystanders can just politely point to the blog for people to see what’s going on and tell them to come back in a couple of weeks for more :innocent:


It’s unlikely, but not impossible!

(Am I the only one that wants the new Pots screen to be unveiled on Christmas Day as a super special present? Just me, then?!)


I’d take that as a present from Monzo.


Definitely not just you :wink: that would make my Christmas :crossed_fingers:

Well that would be cool, but really I want it today, particularly the increase to 20 pots…
