It is called to mind that its like Apple's Siri and Microsoft Cortana. But with one difference. Cortana and Siri takes voice commands and M is created to communicate via text message.

In a given example M is asked to recommend an item. Then later on M is asked to purchase that item for the user. But with all that in mind. It is done as chatting to a friend.

M is empowered in a way that set it out as different from any other assistant that works digitally. As it has the ability to reserve hotel rooms, make purchases, booking flights, by recommending things and the list goes on.
