Gmail, Google Photos Getting Big AI Improvements

  • Gmail for iOS now supports sending money with Google Pay & snoozing emails

If you thought Google was done releasing new Gmail features, the company has news for you today. Smart Compose builds on a feature Gmail introduced a year ago called Smart Reply, which is created to speed up response time when you're replying to messages. "Because it operates in the background, you can write an email like you normally would, and Smart Compose will offer suggestions as you type". Head to Settings - Try The New Gmail - and go for it.

One of the coolest features of Inbox was its Smart Reply feature, which has since made its way to Gmail directly. If a suggestion pops up that users like, they just hit the tab button to use it. Since it's context-aware, if it's Friday you'll get "Have a great weekend!" as a suggested closing phrase.

The first new feature comes in the form of smart suggestions in the image viewer. When you use it, Gmail lets you specify when it should remind you about an important message. Where Smart Reply is just a few words long and restricted to a few different options, Smart Compose can change.

Users must then access the General tab in the settings menu, and scroll down and enable "experimental access". During the Google I/O 2018, the two initial announcements were the Smart compose for Gmail and suggested action for Photos, both of which use artificial intelligence to make the user experience even better. From there, you should see Smart Compose auto-populate your messages in the not-too-distant future.

You might be able to access Smart Compose right this minute.
