There are a few different options available for splitting the bill, in Project Fi. Called Group Repay, each group plan member's portion of the bill is now automatically calculated, and then provided with several payment options directly through Project Fi.

When it comes time to pay up, you can use Google Wallet to both send and receive funds. Of course, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are supported, but this pair is nowhere near the "affordable" price tag we saw on the likes of Google Nexus 5X.

According to Google's own survey, about 50 percent of people aged 18 to 34 who have a group plan now share their plans with their parents and half of them pay at least some share of the bill.

The repay amount that is fixed can be a number of things- an individual's total usage, a fixed amount, or only for data usage above an allotted 1GB budget.

If you're on Project Fi, you can check this feature out soon! Members can simply make payments from the Fi notification on their home screen. This system also allows repayments to be automatically taken from a debit card or checking account. There is also the option to view the group repay history.

Plan owners or members can set up monthly repayments and reminders.

This new feature makes it much easier to use a group plan on Project Fi, especially if you've been looking to get a group plan with a few friends, but don't want to pay for your friends service every month.

According to Google, its group plans efforts are likely to be appreciated by many, since group mobile phone plans are more popular than ever. Dubbed Group Repay, this feature is aimed at helping users split of the service split up the group plan bill. Remember on Project Fi, data is $10/month per gigabit.

Google's Project Fi allows you to share your wireless plan with friends, family, and even strangers.
