 Facebook M is no more for your assistance

Introduced back in 2015 and becoming official just recently, Facebook M, Facebook’s human-powered virtual assistant has been shut down. Facebook M’s last day of existence is January 19, 2018.

Facebook, in a report by The Verge, stated, “We launched this project to learn what people needed and expected of an assistant, and we learned a lot. We’re taking these useful insights to power other AI projects at Facebook. We continue to be very pleased with the performance of M suggestions in Messenger, powered by our learnings from this experiment.

For those who don’t know what Facebook M is, the social networking site’s in-house virtual assistant is specifically for the Messenger app. While the inbuilt bot has elements of artificial intelligence, it works with the help of humans and is mainly for providing recommendations to the users by catching up various keywords. With Facebook M, users could send or receive money, send suggested stickers, book a cab, use the polling or the share location feature.

Additionally, Facebook M, when made official as only in the US for the Android as well as iOS users.

Furthermore, it is still not known what Facebook wishes to do next in AI, and whether or not it plans to take a complete exit from the world of virtual assistants.

Stay tuned to know more.
