Facebook Sets To Beat Google And Others To Their Game With The New Facebook M by djl(m): 7:31pm On Oct 05, 2015
In August, 2015 Facebook announced a new development into its messenger, an AI-based virtual personal assistant that is simply called “M". While this
announcement might come as a good news to Facebook and users of the chat service messenger, it is obviously a massive blow in the face of Google, Apple, and others.

What Can M do?
Before we think of what M can do let's take alittle peep into what the service is.

M is a new personal assistance that is built into messenger.

You think of M in the same light as Siri(iphone), Google now(Android) Cortana(Windows) etc. But unlike other artificial intelligences Facebook M uses human helpers to brute force a full-featured assistance.
Facebook has contracted real people to help M answer people's request while teaching the technology how to handle them automatically in the future.

M can actually complete a task on your behalf, a function you won't get on Siri or other artificial intelligence services.
So, whether it's shopping, delivery of gifts to loved ones, making travel arrangements, booking hotels and restaurants, making appointments, or just about anything else you ask of it, M will be at your service.

As of now Facebook M is still in its beta stage and only some few hundred people have got the update on their messenger apps. With time the service will be rolled out to more users of messenger.

Below are Screenshots of a user utilizing the personal assistants strength of M
