Google unveils new 'smart compose' feature for Gmail

Google unveils new 'smart compose' feature for Gmail

The Smart Compose feature will use contextual clues from your email - say the subject line and who you're sending the message to - to auto-suggest words and phrases as you type your email. 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. The next suggestion will then come up, and you can keep doing the Tab dance if you want, all the way to the end.

Smart Compose operates in the background, letting you accept its suggestions or ignore them, so you don't need to change the way you now compose drafts.

Gmail users have had Smart Reply for over a year, but the mail service is getting even smarter. Since it's context-aware, if it's Friday you'll get "Have a great weekend!" as a suggested closing phrase. If Spring's just sprung, Smart Compose might suggest "happy Spring!"

The Met Gala 2018
The hitmaker sported a similarly edgy hairstyle, showing off an undercut beneath three buns on the top of her head. So it's fair to say that whatever Madonna wears for the Met Gala is going to be nothing short of spectacular.

You can now send and request money as an attachment in Gmail with Google Pay.

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.

Smart Compose arrives off the heels of a recent Gmail redesign that includes features like Nudging, Snooze, and others. 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. After the new Gmail is active, go back to Settings - General - and scroll down to "Experimental Access". If you're in the dead of winter, Smart Compose might suggest "stay warm out there!"
