Google Wallet for iOS will now let you split up bills with your friends, adding a helpful function to an app Google is still hoping will truly take off.

Google announced the news in a brief Google+ post:

The days of arguing about how to split the dinner bill are over. With the latest version of Google Wallet on iOS you can pick any charge, add the people you want to split it with, choose how you want to divide it up, and they’ll receive a request for their share of the total.

The app has been updated with a few other features as well. For one, it now supports Apple's Touch ID, so users can use their fingerprint to unlock it.

It also got a general redesign, taking advantage of Material Design, which the company is slowly rolling out to most of its apps.

Google has been trying to generate more interest from iOS developers, and that will likely extend to Google Wallet, particularly as rival Apple Pay continues to gain support.
