  • A Google R&D team wants to bring Smart Reply to all your chat apps

What makes the app unique is that it integrates itself to any other third party messaging apps to offer smart replies. The project, simply called "Reply", will allow users who sign up - now available to Android users only - the ability to use "smart replies" in their favorite mainstream chat applications like Facebook Messenger, Skype, Twitter's Direct Message feature, Whatsapp, and Hangouts.

Some of Google's apps like Hangouts let you quickly send a response right from its notification. There's also an automated Vacation Responder that is able to check the user's calendar and tell people that the user is now not at work.

Smart Reply is an AI-powered technology that creates automatic response suggestions. Reply will be able to silence users' phone when they are driving, and it will also inform people who send a message that the user can not chat at the moment. "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.

"You probably get a lot of chat messages", said Area 120 in an email to testers. An example would be receiving messages while driving; using your phone's Global Positioning System and Bluetooth sensors, Smart Reply would know you are in your auto. Along with these most using messaging platforms, the function will go easily enabled with Android Messages, Skype, Twitter, direct messages and even Slack too.

Love it, or hate it, but the Smart Reply feature in Google's Gmail is a boon to those who are inundated with hundreds of emails on a daily basis.

Google has confirmed the existence of Area 120's Reply app but told TechCrunch it was a very early experiment.

Sending out invitations via email, Area 120 urged users to try out a new app called Reply.

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.
