Facebook has entered the world of digital personal assistants with today’s launch of M. The company announced today that its new AI will be a Messenger-based service and will be launching sometime in the future. While many details about M are still unknown, we do know a few things that it’ll be able to do.
Like iOS’ Siri, Facebook’s M is designed to make your life a little easier. It can look up all sorts of information, find and buy products, book restaurant reservations, travel arrangements and many other things. If you’re visiting an unknown area, you can ask M where you can go to grab a drink or some dinner, for example.
M is currently in a testing phase, but hopefully it won’t be too long before we see it make its public debut.
