Earlier today at company’s annual developer’s conference, CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai announced many updates for Google products. One of the highlights was adding a smart reply feature to Gmail, which would be available to both Android and iOS users.

The new feature will allow users to quickly reply in line with the contents of the e-mail. The ‘smart reply’ will be short and generic. The AI will detect incoming messages and produce three sample replies to the user.

The system analyzes and learns your writing behavior and generates smart responses accordingly. This feature will also run on company’s messaging app “Allo”.

The company hopes the feature to perform well on Android and iOS platforms. Moreover, CEO of Google announced various other updates for Google products such as the New Chip for AI in Cloud and Easy photo sharing in Google Photos.

Google nowadays is rolling out updates after every month. Recently, Tech giant Google has updated its programmatic and ad sales platform, AdSense, which would now be removing ads from the web pages without having to punish the entire website that violates AdSense policy.

The step is taken in a bid to attract publishers by offering more flexibility.

Scott Spencer, director for sustainable ads at Google, in a blog post, said,“As we roll out page-level policy action as the new default for content violations, we’ll be able to stop showing ads on select pages, while leaving ads up on the rest of a site’s good content”.

The smart reply feature will roll out in English first, following other languages in upcoming days.
