Add a chat window
Add a wall or chat window, so people in the group can make comments or pose questions. e.g. "Is that everyone?" "Why was the beer so much?"
We have added comments on expenses and an activity feed where you can see recent comments and changes. Try it out and let us know if you need any additional chat features.
This allows people within group to communicate within the app. More in a chat format in the lower half of the window maybe

it will help if we have group wide chat feature so that we can assign task and ask for status
Just reiterating what othera have said but a chat facility within groups would be really useful. Currently use facebook or text to communicate with other group members.

Requires a dedicated chat window on the app and webpage. Or maybe a link to chat groups on Whatsapp. Very useful to have.

I feel that user should be able to communicate with other user via chat option, they can discuss their payments as well as bills.
I was adding some previous expenses with my friend and due to some confusion I wanted to let him know about that and I did texted him. At that moment I realized that Splitwise should include chat feature, so user do not have leave application and can continue their process.
Hope it help!!

Many a times I need to remind or discuss the expenses to all members in an expense group.
Sometimes I chat with individual member for some back settlements.
In any of these situations I either create whatsapp group having the same members in that expense group OR I start a email thread.
As I have many friends groups with different expenses, I needed to create equivalent number of whatsapp group by identifying their phone numbers.
If directly chat with them from splitvise then, I don't have to worry if I have their cell numbers, Gmail ids, Yahoo ids.
I hope splitvise maintains its separate accounts, so chat or notification, offline message can easily be supported too.
It will be great addition to usability of the app. Think about it.
