Venmo is introducing a new gift-wrapping feature to give users a new way to gift money to friends and family. The new feature is starting to roll out today and gives users access to eight animated gift-wrap designs that can be added to a payment note.
To use the new feature, users need to tap the “Pay or Request” button and add the recipient. From there, you can tap the gift-wrap icon and select the gift-wrap you’d like to send along with the payment. Once you’ve chosen a gift-wrap, you’ll have the option to preview the animation before confirming and sending the payment.
The recipient will then get a notification that they’ve received a gift in the app, where they’ll be able to unwrap the gift and see the animated design. Venmo says both the sender and recipient can rewatch the animation at any time from the payment details screen. The rollout of Venmo’s new gift-wrapping feature starts today for select customers and will be available for all users in the coming weeks.
