AI-powered 'Nudge' respond reminders rolling out to the new Gmail

Google announced the major update for Gmail last month, bringing a host of new features such as Confidential Mode, Smart Reply, Nudges, and the ability to view attachments without opening the mail. The feature, which is being called an "experimental feature", builds off the idea of Smart Reply that was revealed in 2017 and predicts what you'll write next when composing an email. Tap the "Try the new Gmail" option right at the top. Be sure to save your settings. You'll also need an internet connection to enable offline mode for the first time.

"From your greeting to your closing (and common phrases in between), Smart Compose suggests complete sentences in your emails so that you can draft them easily", Google said in a blog post.

In order to use native offline support, the Chrome browser needs to be updated to the latest version and offline mode needs to be enabled.

For now, Smart Compose can only throw suggestions in the English language. Next, scroll down a bit and check the box that says Experimental Access.

Once you do that, you need to click on Save Changes.

Harvey Weinstein is trying to discredit women of colour: Salma Hayek
According to Hayek, however, it is not just women who have suffered as a outcome of powerful men abusing their positions. Salma Hayek attends Kering Women in Motion photocall at Cannes. "We all have to be part of the adjustment".

Now, click on the compose email. To test it, I tried multiple scenarios. This new feature on the platform will help users autocomplete mails as they type the content in the compose window.

The Confidential Mode is essentially a privacy-driven feature that lets you send emails with an expiration date - similar to self-destructing messages on Snapchat or Apple iMessage.

Google has come up with yet another interesting feature known as smart replies or suggested replies. But other than that, this looks like a standard email.

For now, though, Smart Compose is still quite limited (and only works in English).

Now, I agree, Google demonstrated Smart Compose by saying that it will ease the process of writing e-mails, whereas here, it is just offering word suggestions. If you've been patiently awaiting to take the feature for a spin, well, the wait is now over. It will most likely improve over time, when it starts learning your email response patterns.
