Google has added Smart Reply to Hangouts Chat so you can respond to teammates quickly and move projects forward more efficiently, in less time. This launch is part of Google’s ongoing effort to bring intelligent, assistive writing tools to all of G Suite. Smart Reply in Hangouts Chat uses machine learning intelligence, similar to that behind Smart Reply in Gmail. Google’s technology recognizes which messages most likely need responses and proposes up to 3 different replies.
Once you’ve selected one, you can send it immediately or edit your response starting with the Smart Reply text. Please note, this feature is currently only available in English.
