A spokesperson told the news organization:
"We are working to develop voice assistance and artificial intelligence technologies that can work across our entire family of AR / VR products, including Portal, Oculus and future products."
Facebook has previous experience in the development of AI assistants, but none that can rival Alexa or Siri. He launched Wizard M for Messenger in 2015, which he finally eliminated last year. Users can also activate commands for their smart screen by saying "Hey Portal", but the device still needs Alexa's help for more complex tasks. As it is likely that the project is still in its early stages, we will have to wait a bit to see if the Facebook version of the voice assistants is comparable to that of its rival.
