Separately, Google is also working on a stories format for its search result.
Tech giant Google is working on a new artificial intelligence-based auto-reply system, called Reply, to communicate with people in an easier manner, according to Android Police. Plus it will have an advanced do not disturb mode that will silence your phone and tell people you can't chat right now, but also scan incoming messages for important stuff so that "Reply can make sure to get your attention even when your phone is silent".
Beyond the aforementioned, Reply will include a myriad of automated features.
Google is working on an app that will allow user to reply to a message for any app directly from the notification panel with just a single tap on it. Google calls the app Reply and it will predict answers to provide three smart answers to a message. But as a hint of how it would work, Area 120 said the plan is to offer Smart Replies right into the notifications tab, supposedly when the user receives a notification from the above-mentioned third-party chat apps.
Google's AI-powered Smart Reply was first released with its Inbox app. It rolled out to Android Messages as well, granted you were subscribed to Google Fi. Smart Reply functionality could save on-the-go workers time while improving collaboration.
The replies take into consideration the user's current location to help with crafting the correct response - like a "yes" or "no" if you've arrived somewhere, or the time it will take you to drive to a given location, for example. "Vacations mode" feature which checked your calendar and then responds to the people that you are on vacations or not available, will also be included. When you get an urgent message like "We're waiting for you!" It was programmed to automatically guide instant replies to the emails on the basis of message context received by the particular user. The new project is still in its early development and Google may not even make it widely available outside of its Area 120 testers.
If you're interested in testing out Reply and other applications from Area 120 in the future, your best bet is to sign up to join the incubator's Early Access Program.
