Facebook recently launched their AI based digital assistant “M” for its Messenger app. the company aims to bring the power of M’s AI technology to support and enhance the Messenger experience and make it more useful, personal and seamless. M offers suggestions by popping into any open conversation to suggest relevant content and capabilities to enrich the way people communicate and get things done. the social networking giant has also add a “More” tab to easily access Messenger features such as Games, Payments, Share Location and Rides.
Here’s how you can use “M” in Messenger :
You can access “M” while your chatting with a friend or a group as you normally would. M may make a suggestion in a conversation relevant to one of the core actions listed below, and then the M logo and suggestion will appear — it’s that simple. And M learns: the more you use it, the more it can help. You always have the option to ignore or dismiss a suggestion if it’s not helpful, and if you don’t want M’s assistance you can easily mute it in M settings.
Suggestions from M appear when it recognizes intent in a conversation and initially will include the following actions:
• Sending stickers: M shares fun sticker suggestions for your daily life interactions like “Thank you” or “Bye-bye.”
• Paying or requesting money: M recognizes when people are discussing payments and gives them the option of easily sending or requesting money.
• Sharing your location: M can suggest an option to share your location during a conversation.
• Making plans: If people are talking about getting together, M helps coordinating a plan.
• Starting a poll (in group conversations only): Have a hard time making decisions in a group? M lets you set a poll topic and vote in group conversations.
• Getting a Ride: Talking about going somewhere? M suggests “Get A Ride” and shares an option of Lyft or Uber.
Facebook AI digital assistant “M” is currently avilable only for all iOS and Android users however, the company has always supported the Windows 10 Ecosystem and hopefully it will be avialble soon for Windows 10 Devices. Facebook AI digistal assistant is currently available in the US region and will eventually roll out to other countries in the coming days. the social networking giant also stated this is just the beginning and you can expect to see more and more AI-powered, delightful and relevant experiences improving Messenger for you.
