Smart Reply now gives you three quick responses on Gmail

Google announced today that Smart Reply is coming to both the Android and iOS versions of Gmail. If you're a subscriber to Google's Inbox or message app Allo, you probably have already had the privilege of seeing this feature in action. Google analyzes email that you've received, and offers up three quick responses to choose from. Each one is in a box at the bottom of the page, ready to be tapped as your response. Over time, the Smart Reply feature learns how you write. This means that eventually the three choices will seem as though they were really written by you. With Smart Reply, you can quickly respond to an email without having to navigate the virtual QWERTY keyboard on your mobile device (unless you want to).

Google says that the feature is rolling out now in English speaking countries, and will come to Spanish speaking regions in a matter of weeks. It uses Machine Learning to remember if you naturally would respond to an everyday occurrence with hyperbole ("Thanks so much! That is an amazing offer and we appreciate it greatly!), or with a laid back response (Thanks.) and suggest the appropriate answer. Keep in mind that you can always choose one of the Smart Replies and start editing it or adding to it.

Considering that 12% of replies in the mobile Inbox app are a Smart Reply, the move by Google today should greatly expand the feature's use. If you are a Gmail user, be on the look out for the three Smart Reply boxes the next time you're responding to an email.
