Introducing Facebook Messenger 'M Assistant'

Facebook have introduced an Assistant feature called "Messenger M" as an on-screen AI to make messenger more easy to use and explore all of its features which users might not know.

Personally, I see this feature being very useful to newbies in Messenger as it won't be necessary for someone that knows his or her way about on the app.

In fact, it's similar to the AI google brought to its Allo App. The way it works is this; when you are using the app, the Assistant feature will be directing you on next steps to follow, it also brings out some of the features in the app relevant to your interests.

Below are Messenger M Features:

✔️ Sticker suggestions
✔️ Requesting or sending money
✔️ Location sharing
✔️ Making plans with a friend (sets a reminder for recipients of the chat)
✔️ making polls in group chats
✔️ Requesting a ride from Uber or Lyft

As at the time of this report, Messenger M is rolling out to all iOS and Android users in the United States. Meanwhile, those in other regions are expected to get the update any moment from now.

In case you are not comfortable with this new feature, you can always turn it off directly from the messenger settings.
