Gmail Smart Com­pose

This new fea­ture will help Gmail users draft e-mails with ease

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - FIRST TAKE -


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.
