Today, Facebook’s Vice President of Messaging Products David Marcus has announced a new service called M.
M is designed to be your personal assistant, which you can use to ask for recommendations such as gift ideas or restaurants to visit when you’re traveling.
Currently in testing, M also helps users send shipments and book appointments.
To start, you can message M like you would any other Messenger contact. Give your requests and M will ask followup questions as necessary.
The announcement was made through a Facebook post.
