Messenger in April of this year incorporated a new functionality: M. It is basically a virtual assistant that uses artificial intelligence to provide suggestions to users within the context of conversations, such as searching for a song in Spotify when referring someone.

On the other hand, during the company’s annual F8 Developer Conference, you could learn about several of the new features that will come to the application during these months, such as a new Discover tab, which will be able to find several relevant categories, recently used bots, trends and a search field directly from the home screen.

Other proposals that will arrive at the messenger are the reader of “parametric codes”, the chat extensions and also the Rich Gameplay and the game bots, which together with the Instant Games, look for the users to happen each time more hours within the application.

As you can see, the social network giant Facebook’s Messenger is ready to start with its evolution and try to dominate this segment, if it wants to reach this target then to do so simply it must dethrone WhatsApp, the most used instant messaging application worldwide.
