Facebook Messenger now comes with Spotify recommendations when music is mentioned in a conversation, as it appears Messenger has integrated the music service’s bot with suggestions by intelligent assistant M.
Starting earlier this year, Facebook’s intelligent assistant M began to monitor words used in conversations to suggest things like Uber rides, peer-to-peer payments, and stickers, or create event calendars.
In April, Facebook brought bots into the M suggestions equation with Delivery.com suggestions, and the company continued this effort last month with recipe suggestions from Food Network.
Spotify M suggestions were added a little over a week ago, a Facebook spokesperson told VentureBeat.
Use a phrase like “play some music” in a conversation and M may offer the suggestion: “Find Music.” Tap the suggestion and a webview will open that allows you to share songs you’ve recently played, share music featured by Spotify, or create a group playlist with friends.
