Gmail’s Smart Compose Feature Launches Exclusively on the Pixel 3

Posted on October 9, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Google with 6 Comments

Gmail’s brilliant Smart Compose feature launched earlier this year to help you be more productive. The feature has only been available on the web so far, letting users quickly write emails using machine learning to automatically guess what you might want to write next.

Today, Google announced that the company is bringing Smart Compose to Gmail on the phone, starting with the company’s latest Pixel 3 devices. Smart Compose will be an exclusive feature for the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL for a few months, before heading to other mobile devices in early 2019, according to Google.

Google is launching Smart Compose in four new languages at the same time. Along with English, Smart Compose can now help you write emails faster in Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.

    Doucebagery at its finest, artificially holding back a software feature from other phones. But it's the Gmail app which blows anyway.

    exactly what I was thinking


    plus, I am liking the iOS Outlook app more and more. It has slowly but surely become excellent.

    I don't use Gmail and can only speculate, but this seems like the kind of thing that will look good in a demo but will never actually work well enough to be worth using in real life.

    Personally, In my communications I prefer to use RI (Real Intelligence) instead of the artificial variety. Turned the darn thing off after I found that many of the replies were just annoying me since they sounded legit, but they weren't exactly what I wanted to say. Great for people who want to communicate without thinking.

      Smart Reply is available in both the Gmail and Messages apps, and I hate it! My father called me in a panic today thinking that someone had hacked into his phone and had taken it over. It was just Smart Reply suggesting responses, freaking him out. I forgot to turn that off after I updated his Messages app the other day. Not everyone wants our technology overlords telling us what to do and how to do it.
