Google Wants To Bring Smart Replies To More Chat Apps

A Google R&D team wants to bring Smart Reply to all your chat apps

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. So, when a notification comes in from a supported messaging app, Reply is right there with contextual replies ready to go.

The app is named "Reply", and invitations to test it have been sent out by Area 120.

Oxycontin Maker Purdue Pharma To Stop Agressive Marketing Of Opioids
Purdue also stopped selling the original form of the drug. "The genie is already out of the bottle", said Dr. The decision comes as the drug maker continues to face criticism for marketing addictive painkillers.

"You probably get a lot of chat messages". The feature was created to automatically suggest quick replies to emails based on the context of the messages received by the user. Reply will be able to silence users' phone when they are driving, and it will also inform people who send a message that the user can not chat at the moment. Would you like to see Smart Reply arrive for your chat app?

The replies take into consideration the user's current location to help with crafting the correct response - like a "yes" or "no" if you've arrived somewhere, or the time it will take you to drive to a given location, for example. Do you wish a robot could free you of your constant communication obligations via WhatsApp, Facebook or text messages? Reply will make sure to get the user's attention even when their phone is in silent mode.

2 officers killed responding to 911; suspect held
Two Ohio police officers were killed in a shooting Saturday afternoon in a Columbus suburb, CBS News reports. Officer Morelli was recognized in 2012 as the Westerville Division of Police Officer of the Year.

One of the features of Inbox and Gmail that Google rolled out a couple of years ago is Smart Reply. But the feature has not been made available to all Android Messages users as of yet. There's a Do Not Disturb mode that switches on when you're driving to silence your phone and alert those who message you that you can't chat, as well as a Vacation Responder that checks your calendar on your behalf to tell people if you're not working. Now, a development team inside Google's Area 120 incubator is reportedly working to bring the feature to popular messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and a ton of others. There's also an automated Vacation Responder that is able to check the user's calendar and tell people that the user is now not at work. Smart Reply functionality could save on-the-go workers time while improving collaboration. "Like all other projects within Area 120, it's a very early experiment so there aren't many details to share right now".
