Google unveil test for chats with robots

  • Google-Smart-Replies

The app is now in development by Google's Area 120 team.

According to a test sign-up form for Reply, the feature will be available on chat apps including Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages, WhatsApp, Skype, Slack, Line, and WeChat. 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. "Alert messages" feature in which if your phone is silent and you have a prior meeting or work, your phone will give you update on that event. Smart replies are now used in Gmail and other Google communication options, allowing business professionals to quickly respond to simple messages. This is a nifty feature that uses AI to scan the contents of your email, and based on that it will provide users with a bunch of different reply options that are appropriate to the email. Since it has not yet been availed for all of the users of Android Messages service till the date.

It should be noted that Android Messages, as mentioned, has already received Smart Reply support.

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.


Smart Reply is an AI-powered technology that creates automatic response suggestions. Smart Reply functionality could save on-the-go workers time while improving collaboration.

Some of Google's apps like Hangouts let you quickly send a response right from its notification. Google is developing an app that will give you a selection of preformatted responses allowing you to reply with just one click of a button.

There would also be a vacation responder that would automatically reply while you are in an area without cell service for an extended period. There is also the question of whether or not other developers want to integrate Google's features into their apps or if it would be better to develop their own, but what do you guys think?
