This disclosure describes techniques to automatically extract information from messages that include multimedia content, e.g., image, video, etc., and provide a readout of the message content to the recipient. Extraction of the content can be performed using machine learning. For example, readouts can be provided for multimedia messages received via short message service (SMS), chat or messaging applications, email, etc. The techniques can be implemented as part of a virtual assistant application. The readout is provided upon user request. Messages are accessed and analyzed upon specific permission of the user.
