Google Found a Way to Bring Smart Replies to All Messaging Apps

A new app created by Google's Area 120 incubator called 'Reply, ' is now in beta and gives you smart reply options for most messaging services...

The key feature of Reply is that it aims to bring smart replies to the next level.

This is not the first time for Google to have this kind of feature, Project Fi users already have this app on Android Messaging but this time you have one-tap replies feature in Whatsapp, Messenger, Skype, Facebook and even Twitter's direct messages. The app can go through your calendar and tell others if you're on leave. The feature was created to automatically suggest quick replies to emails based on the context of the messages received by the user. Apparently, the replies also take into consideration the user's current location to craft even more proper responses.

The feature would take into account the message you receive and scopes out keywords to predictively suggest a quick answer to the email. It will also be able to override your phone's silent mode in the case of an emergency or more urgent message.

In an email test sent to potential testers, published by Android Police, a spokesman for the team said: 'You probably get a lot of chat messages. It will be able to prioritise information and send a notification if the AI deems it important, like if the message says "Where are you?"

North Korea stages military parade ahead of Winter Olympics
Unlike the North's last parade in April 2017, state television did not show the event live, instead airing it hours later. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also delivered a speech celebrating the country's military prowess.

Now it appears as though Google wants to bring its Smart Reply feature to other messaging apps as well.

Reply offers a Do Not Disturb feature for when you're driving, which silences the phone and responds to any messages received that you can't chat right now.

For the uninitiated, Smart Reply is Google's clever artificial intelligence-based feature that generates a set of clickable replies based on the context of the message.

The project, like all Area 120 projects, is unrelated to any broader developments at Google - in this case, that means it's not directly tied to Google's messaging efforts.

The great thing is that you don't actually need to have been formally invited by Google to request access to the Reply app. "Like all other projects within Area 120, it's a very early experiment so there aren't many details to share right now".
