Gmail's Smart Compose will autocomplete your emails

Smart Compose helps Gmail write emails "quickly with confidence", as a Google blog entry puts it, by making suggestions for the rest of the sentence as you write. Google Photos will recognize the presence of those friends in pictures, and automatically suggest that the user shares those pictures with those specific contacts.

When you type a sentence in an email, lighter text to potentially complete the sentence will appear. One of these was something called "Smart Replies" which also employs a set of machine learning algorithms to predict replies for you to an email.

One of the coolest features of Inbox was its Smart Reply feature, which has since made its way to Gmail directly. "It can even suggest relevant contextual phrases", Google stated. If a suggestion pops up that users like, they just hit the tab button to use it. "For example, if it's Friday it may suggest "Have a great weekend!" as a closing phrase".

Whether it's as [the] starting group or extra minutes, and obviously the lineup worked or whatever, but it's not about the lineup. New Orleans has the ability to pound the ball in the paint, which was a critical part of them winning Game 3 of the series.

"Smart Compose won't yet learn from your personal style, but it will incorporate the context of the email subject and the previous email body (if the user is replying to an incoming email) to make better suggestions", the spokesperson said. From there, you should see Smart Compose auto-populate your messages in the not-too-distant future.

During Google I/O 2018, the company revealed a new Smart Compose feature which will be added to Gmail. Access is said to be rolling out to all users over the next few weeks and months. Google then says to find "Experimental Access" in the "General" settings tab and enable it.
