Gmail's Smart Compose will ensure you never type an email again

Gmail's Smart Compose will ensure you never type an email again

Google Pay lets you quickly and easily request and send money through Gmail. Google Photos will recognize the presence of those friends in pictures, and automatically suggest that the user shares those pictures with those specific contacts. Gmail with Smart Compose evolves as you email messages, learning from what you do, giving you suggestions based on what it's learned. For instance, if the subject says "Taco Tuesday", Smart Compose will offer word suggestions such as guacamole and chips in the body. 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. Smart Compose just pops up a couple grayed out suggestions as you type, and you don't even have to interact with them if you don't want to.

Announced at Google I/O, soon Gmail will be able to write whole emails for you, with just a few keystrokes.

Google said Smart Compose saves users time by "cutting back on repetitive writing".

Smart Compose is more like the predictive text on your smartphone. Since it's context-aware, if it's Friday you'll get "Have a great weekend!" as a suggested closing phrase. In reality, at least among those newest attributes that made it to Gmail to get iOS is now on Android for just a small while.

Users must then access the General tab in the settings menu, and scroll down and enable "experimental access".

Smart Compose will be available to consumers using the new Gmail in the coming weeks, and to corporate G Suite customers in the coming months, according to Google.
