Gmail Smart Compose
This new feature will help Gmail users draft e-mails with ease
GOOGLE HAS INTRODUCED
the ‘Smart Compose’ feature for Gmail. Powered by artificial intelligence, this new feature, which is an extension to the ‘Smart Reply’ feature launched last year, will help Gmail users draft emails with ease. Just like predictive text, this feature will suggest complete sentences as possible replies to e-mails, all the way from the opening greeting to the closing statement. Google says that this feature works in the background. Users can continue to write an e-mail like they normally would; Smart Compose will offer suggestions as one types. If you wish to use the suggestions, you can click on the ‘tab’ button to use it.
“The Smart Compose feature has been designed to help save time by cutting back on repetitive writing, while reducing the chance of spelling and grammatical errors. It can even suggest relevant contextual phrases. For example, if it’s Friday, it may suggest ‘Have a great weekend!’ as a closing phrase,” said Greg Bullock, Software Engineer, Gmail, in a blog post.
