In a move aimed at helping its non-English language users, Facebook Messenger's artificial intelligence (AI) assistant "M" will now make recommendations in Spanish too.
The feature, now available to all Facebook users with their language set to Spanish in the US, scans the words and intent of your messages, then pops up optional suggestions from Messenger's many features, Techcrunch.com reported on Tuesday.
The feature will soon be introduced for users in Mexico too, the report said.
The suggestions are designed to surface all the features buried inside Messenger as it strives to become more than just an SMS replacement.
Beyond stickers and payments, M Suggestions can also recommend location sharing, timed reminders, group chat polls and ride-sharing options from Lyft and Uber.
This development comes after Facebook added a multilingual sharing button to Pages so they can post in one language and have it appear to people in their native tongues.
