Google's 'Smart Reply' Feature Arrives on Desktops Today
There’s no denying that email is a major time-suck. Even if each email only takes a few minutes, there are so many messages sent to our inboxes during the day that the time adds up. Google may just have a solution.
The company announced today that its Smart Reply feature is coming to the desktop version of Inbox. Smart Reply learns which of your emails require a response, and then suggests three different phrases that would be a potential reply. Based on a user’s selections, the tool will refine its response options.
For emails that only need a short answer, this can save time and cut down on typos. For responses that need to be longer, the tool can provide a jumpstart for the process.
