Just like Microsoft, Google’s annual developer conference has tons of AI-related announcements. The recently revamped Gmail has a new capability: help people while they compose email drafts.
The AI-powered feature called Smart Compose can suggest contextual phrases and even complete sentences, allowing Gmail to type emails pretty fast.
In fact, they don’t need to type most of the time. Just keep pressing Tab and suggested text is added automatically. It does so while cutting repetitive writing and reducing the chances for grammatical errors.
Smart Compose goes in line with last year’s Smart Reply feature that suggests responses to for emails.
Please note that the feature will not work with the old Gmail; you’ll have to get the new Gmail. It will roll out for Gmail users over the next few weeks. G Suite users will have to wait for a few months.
