Facebook’s smart speaker didn’t ship with a rival to Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. But the company is now working on its own digital assistant, according to a new report from CNBC.

It’s not clear exactly how the assistant will work or what it will be called, though CNBC reports it could be integrated with Facebook’s Oculus virtual reality headsets or with the company’s Portal speakers. Right now, Portal relies on Alexa for assistant functionality, though you can control speaker functions like volume by saying “hey Portal.”
