SUBJECT: Write emails faster with Smart Compose in Gmail

Gmail for iOS now supports sending money with Google Pay & snoozing emails

Gmail for iOS now supports sending money with Google Pay & snoozing emails

Google's G Suite team announced yet another update to Gmail at Google I/O, the search giant's biggest event of the year.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai demonstrated Smart Compose by writing an email with the subject line "Taco Tuesday".

Smart Compose is more like the predictive text on your smartphone. For example, if you type "My address is", you'll have the opportunity to auto-complete the sentence with your address.

You can now use the new snooze button to put off emails that you just can't get to right now. It can also minimize spelling and grammar errors. It's also created to bring up contextual information, hopefully saving time you'd normally spend copy and pasting things. Smart Compose will use machine learning to predict what words and phrases a Gmail user will type next when they compose a new email. The feature even serves up relevant contextual phrases such as "Have a great weekend!" if you're emailing someone on a Friday. Google's adding some AI-powered capabilities, too, in the form of Smart Compose.

Users will be able to designate an email as being sent in confidential mode, allowing the sender to revoke access to that email's content, either manually or by setting it to expire at a specific time. If you're in the dead of winter, Smart Compose might suggest "stay warm out there!" Her work has also appeared in Gizmodo, Wired, Refinery29, Slate, Bicycling, and Outside Magazine.
