In the James Bond series, there are two Ms: M, Bond’s boss, and Miss Moneypenny, M’s secretary. You are most likely not a special agent and carry no license to kill, but Facebook has an M to assist you while chatting on Messenger: M Assistant.
M Assistant is a new intelligent feature that offers you suggestions while chatting with friends and contacts on Facebook Messenger. M suggests helpful actions to enrich your communications. Those actions include:
- sticker suggestions
- Suggestions for requesting for or sending money
- prompts to share your location
- hints creating schedules and appointments
- Suggestions for getting a ride
Basically, it sounds like M Assistant is a tutor for newbies to Messenger. It will also be useful for discovering and getting the hang of new features in the Messenger app.
M Assistant is being rolled out to all iOS and Android users in the US at the moment. Users in other countries can expect it to get to them shortly after.
