Facebook has finally made the AI-powered M Assistant available for everyone on its Messager platform. M offers suggestions by popping into an open conversation to suggest relevant content and capabilities to enrich the way people communicate and get things done. This is kind of similar to what we have seen on Google Assistant in Allo.

Here are some things that M is capable of doing:

  • 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 to coordinate 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-M-botM relies on AI machine learning techniques. It suggests relevant actions to help manage conversations or help get things done. M’s AI technology enhances the Messenger experience and makes it more useful, personal and seamless. To experience M, simply chat 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 above, and then the M logo and suggestion will appear. And, as we have seen on many AI bots, the more you use it, the more it can come handy.

Facebook is also adding a “More” tab to more easily access Messenger features such as Games, Payments, Share Location and Rides. Messenger users across the globe will also start to see a redesigned way to compose messages. It is currently available for all iOS and Android users in the US and will eventually roll out to other countries soon.
