Facebook is reportedly working on the voice-based virtual assistant to its Messenger app to rival Apple's Siri, Google Now and Cortana by Microsoft.
According to a report, the Facebook's voice assistant app is dubbed as MoneyPenny. As for now, there are not much information about the service.
However, the report states that, voice-based virtual assistant by the social media giant would be different from other. It would have 'real people' answering the queries instead of machine automated replies.
