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

Google is bringing Instant one-tap replies to messaging apps

Their internal incubator group Area 120 is working on bringing that feature to other social and messaging apps, not just the ones that are made by Google.

I'll send it to you. While the project is still in its early stages, it will be a great feature to have if it works the way it's now working in the aforementioned apps.

The Area 120 project will offer its suggested replies right in the notifications from these chat apps.

He placed another bomb several blocks away. "My father went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on multiple occasions". NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill noted in a statement that Rahimi's sentencing should deter future acts of terror.


However, Google doesn't want to stop at Android Messages and offer support for Smart Replies within a variety of mainstream chat apps such as Hangouts, Allo, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages, Skype, Twitter, and Slack, to name a few. Smart Replies might sound robotic/impersonal at times but are a boon when whipping out your phone to draft a full-fledged text simply isn't an option.

There would also be a vacation responder that would automatically reply while you are in an area without cell service for an extended period. It rolled out to Android Messages as well, granted you were subscribed to Google Fi. Reply will be able to interpret that as a reason to push that notification through to the user. The feature already exists on Google's Allo and Android messaging app.

The request for testing of the new project came from Area 120, a division of Google that works on experimental products. You can fill out this form for a chance to beta test Reply once it's available. Reply can make sure to get your attention even when your phone is silent. Offering similar technology across a range of apps - and potentially only for Android users - could help push some users to adopt Android over iOS; or could prompt them to move to Gmail when they see how useful Smart Reply technology can be.

The system can apparently work out what people are saying to you and suggest one-tap answers, but Google says it will go further, taking your location, your calendar and other bits of information into account.

The effort is very early - Area 120 is still soliciting users willing to give it a shot. However, much like many other automated features, it will allow urgent messages to break through.
