Say Hello to Your New Facebook Messenger Personal Assistant
In the latest move from Facebook — that sees them inch ever closer to being an all-encompassing service — the platform has today launched M Suggestions. Available to Messenger users across Australia, M Suggestions is powered by artificial intelligence technology and operates in a similar manner to a personal assistant. The new functionalities of the platform detect intent and subsequently offer suggestions to make communication even easier.
M can provide suggestions for making plans, sharing your location, sending stickers and birthday wishes, making voice and video calls, and saving content. While the way you chat on Messenger isn't going to change, with the introduction of M, you'll see the M logo and suggestion pop up when it detects a conversation relevant to any of those topics.
M Suggestions is available across iOS and Android in Australia, Canada, South Africa, the United Kingdom, United States, Mexico and Spain. Take a closer look at it below!
