Looks like digital personal assistants like Siri, Google Now and Cortana will get a new friend( or competitor) soon.
Based on a report on TheInformation, Facebook is launching a virtual assistant of its own, calling it. Moneypenny
Based on the report, the voice assistant will be a feature built into Facebook Messenger that allows users to ask real people for help about researching and ordering products and services, hence the name “Moneypenny”.
Looking at this, we can say that Facebook is dead serious about Messenger and is focusing a lot in making it the go-to chat app on mobile.
