Google adding machine learning-based Smart Compose to Gmail this month

Gmail's Smart Compose Basically Writes Emails For You And It's Live Right Now

The new Gmail launched with a slew of new features last month, and Google announced that more were on the way. Besides the new look, Google introduced "Snooze e-mail" feature to notify you about it at a later date, "Smart Reply" feature to suggest three quick options to reply with, and more. Along with the major redesign, the new features are primarily targeted at the businesses that are using G Suite for work email.

In a boost for user privacy, new Confidential Mode will enable users to remove the option to forward, copy, download or print messages if they're sending sensitive information.

Once the new Gmail is enabled, click on the Gear Icon again, and then click on Settings. Be sure to save your settings.

As mentioned above, you need to enable the new Gmail first.

Find out how to configure Gmail for offline mail use so that you may access emails without Internet connection; the feature works natively in Google Chrome only at the time. However, it's also likely that the more people use Smart Compose, the more Google's machine learning servers will adapt and improve on its suggestions.


Gmail's new feature will help prevent your recipients from sharing your email. Next, scroll down a bit and check the box that says Experimental Access. The feature bars recipients from forwarding, copying/pasting or downloading or even printing the email contents.

Gmail's new design update has been around for a couple of weeks now.

Once that happens, emails typed in Gmail should suggest words and phrases you can use to make writing faster and better. I just had to press Tab once, to accept the suggestion. But any other dates? In fact, smart replies existed in Gmail apps for Android and iOS for quite some time. Click on it, then click on the "Writing suggestions on" selection.

It's great to see that Google isn't giving up on Gmail, as it starts ramping up the inclusion of new features and a new coat of paint. But it is important to understand that the feature is in its initial rollout phase and there is a lot of learning it has to take.

Now, alongside your inbox, users will be able to pull up their calendar in the same window should they need to confirm a meeting time over email.
