On Thursday, nearly two years after announcing the experimental feature, Facebook released a version of M to the general public. Who knows? You may fall in love with it.
"This is just the beginning for M", Facebook product managers Laurent Landowski and Kemal El Moujahid wrote in Thursday's blog.
The only difference is that it doesn't have a voice.
The problem is "it can not scale to millions of people" says Facebook M product manager Laurent Landowski, who co-founded the natural language processing startup Wit.AI that Facebook acquired.
Instead of a full-featured assistant, new M eavesdrops on your regular Messenger conversations and then pops in "suggestions". The same thing could be said when sharing your location, whereby M would suggest you share a live location or a venue address with whomever you're chatting with. Like other virtual assistants, M aims to eliminate much of the guesswork relating to how to get paid, celebrate conversations, arrange transportation, and more - suggested responses are created to let you focus more on the discussion at hand.
To put it simply, using humans as a crutch for the do-it-all AI doesn't work when considering the 1 billion people using Facebook Messenger every month.

It can even hail you a Lyft or Uber.
