Gmail's 'Smart Compose' autocompletes your emails as you type

A Google spokesperson told the Daily Dot that Smart Compose is "trained on billions of common phrases and sentences". To fix the glaring issue of people having to actually type their messages, it's unveiled a new feature for Gmail called Smart Compose. If a suggestion pops up that users like, they just hit the tab button to use it.

At first it seems like it might get in the way, but as Google points out, it operates in the background.

In fact, they don't need to type most of the time. Basically, it will write emails for you. Or wildly inaccurate suggestions if you don't use Gmail all that often.

The feature thus saves a lot of time for users, particularly those who send a lot of emails on a daily basis as it also helps to cut back on repetitive writing. "It can even suggest relevant contextual phrases", Google stated.

Google Smart Compose suggests phrases and words based on precedent as well as context. While the Google CEO made it clear that Google AI has been working with the healthcare industry, when it came to the company's own products, he announced a new update for both Gmail and Google Photos.

Smart Compose arrives off the heels of a recent Gmail redesign that includes features like Nudging, Snooze, and others.

Still, it's a huge leap forward for email composition, and another reason to start using Gmail's web client instead of Outlook for work. For instance, say you're sending a new email to a person named "Jessica", Gmail will automatically ask if you'd like to input "Hey Jessica" at the beginning.
