Today, we're announcing Smart Compose, a new feature powered by artificial intelligence, to help you draft emails from scratch, faster. Gmail previous year also introduced Smart Reply on mobile, and rolled it out to desktop last month. You will then receive another alert to remind you it's time to take action. Gmail with Smart Compose evolves as you email messages, learning from what you do, giving you suggestions based on what it's learned. The Smart Compose feature operates in the background and users can write an email normally while the AI-integration will offer suggestions as they type. It actually suggests complete sentences in emails and users just have to press tab if they want to use the suggested phrase.
Gmail users have had Smart Reply for over a year, but the mail service is getting even smarter. Gmail will automatically begin to offer suggestions for words and phrases you might be starting. Since it's context-aware, if it's Friday you'll get "Have a great weekend!" as a suggested closing phrase.
Smart Compose is more like the predictive text on your smartphone. To ensure you're eligible to try out this new capability, head into your settings and make sure "Try the new Gmail" is enabled. From there, you should see Smart Compose auto-populate your messages in the not-too-distant future.
Death toll from Pakistan mining explosions climbs to 23
Most of the miners came from the same village in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Shangla district, officials told Pakistan's Dawn newspaper. Some labourers are reportedly still trapped under rubble of the mine, which collapsed due to a gas explosion.
Smart Compose will be coming to Gmail this month, Pichai said.
