Google announced a new Gmail feature Tuesday called Smart Compose that will use artificial intelligence to help users write emails. This feature makes Google's machine learning smarts take a crack at guessing what you're about to type - and offering to type it for you.
Smart compose will show suggestions as you type and if you like the suggestion, you can press "Tab" to use it. Smart Reply was pretty simple: When you're drafting an email reply, it understands the context of the previous message and auto-suggests three quick responses you can tap at the bottom of the screen.More news: Armenian protest leader set to be elected PM
"It can even suggest relevant contextual phrases". Where Smart Reply is just a few words long and restricted to a few different options, Smart Compose can change. If the recipient is using a non-Gmail client, they can click on the link to access a Gmail-hosted portal, where they can see the confidential content. Head to Settings - Try The New Gmail - and go for it. If Spring's just sprung, Smart Compose might suggest "happy Spring!"
Smart Compose will roll out later this month to all Gmail users. For instance, say you're sending a new email to a person named "Jessica", Gmail will automatically ask if you'd like to input "Hey Jessica" at the beginning.
Users must then access the General tab in the settings menu, and scroll down and enable "experimental access".
