Those using BlackBerry Messenger can now send money to each other. Today, the company announced integration with PayPal, which lets you send and receive cash within BBM.

All you have to do is connect your PayPal and BBM accounts; BlackBerry says you don’t even need to have the PayPal app on your phone. Just select the new ‘Send Money’ icon in BBM, and you’ll be walked through the setup process.

The feature is still in beta, and limited to Canada. It will work on iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices.
