Gmail 'Smart Compose' is Coming in the Next Few Weeks

Share

Smart compose will show suggestions as you type and if you like the suggestion, you can press "Tab" to use it.

While Google did talk about its core services, the company also used I/O 2018 as an opportunity to talk about Waymo.

The feature isn't available to everyone just yet, but it will be available in the coming weeks.

Numerous aforementioned features are already rolling out to Google Assistant app on Android and iOS, but some of them will be available later this year.

The AI-powered feature called Smart Compose can suggest contextual phrases and even complete sentences, allowing Gmail to type emails pretty fast. That being said we've had machine learning autocorrect for a while so one could argue that this is just another step rather than having smart machines trying to hold our hands a bit too much.

For example, "I haven't seen you" might be autocompleted to "I haven't seen you in a while and I hope you're doing well".

The first new feature comes in the form of smart suggestions in the image viewer.

The bad news is that Google must have hit itself on the head, and decided that G Suite customers would not be given access to the new Gmail design or its awesome new features - like Smart Compose - for a few months.

AI will also power some forthcoming changes to Google Photos.

Smart Compose is more like the predictive text on your smartphone.

Google is showing off what it's like to experiment with artificially intelligent music.

The music is a mix of electronic dance music and bells.

Google's biggest event towards developers kicked off on 8th May at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California right next to Googleplex and will conclude on 10th May.

The company's digital concierge, known only as the Google Assistant, could gain new abilities to handle tasks such as making reservations without human hand-holding.

The tech giant also had made other major announcements at I/O 2018 that intends for simplifying the users' life with the help of new AI-enabled features. Google Assistant is also coming to navigation in Google Maps later this summer.
