  • Smart Reply is an AI-based feature in some of Google’s messaging apps that helps craft replies to messages automatically

  • Google’s internal incubator is working to expand the functionality into other major chat apps.

  • No release date is currently known, but users can fill out a form for a chance to beta test the feature.

If you happen to use Gmail, Inbox, Google Allo, or Android Messages on Project Fi, you no doubt know (and love!) Smart Reply. You know those boxes that pop up when you are composing a reply to a message and make suggestions what to say? That’s Smart Reply in action, and it’s going to start rolling out to chat platforms in the future.

Smart Reply is an AI-based feature that runs within the app. It scans the message you are replying to and takes into account other factors like your current location, what’s in your Google Calendar, the time of day, and even the weather, and then suggests applicable replies that you can tap and automatically fill in.

For example, if you are replying to an email that includes the phrase “Is Tuesday good for you?” Smart Reply will scan your calendar, see that Tuesday is totally open, and then make suggested replies, like, “Tuesday works for me,” or “Let me get back to you.”

Google’s internal incubator, Area 120, is working hard to incorporate this functionality into chat apps such as Google Hangouts, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages (for all carriers), Skype, Twitter DMs, and Slack. The newly announced project is simply called “Reply” and will be initially available to Android users. You can fill out this form for a chance to beta test Reply once it’s available.
