Gmail can now automatically reply to your email

Ever used Google’s Inbox app? It’s a smarter take on email that transforms your boring inbox into something that’s more intelligent and intuitive. Now, Google is taking it one step ahead.

It has introduced a new automatic reply system called “Smart Reply” that analyses messages and suggests three short, standard replies like “No thanks”, “I’ll think about it” or “I’ll send it to you.”

Users can simply select the answer they prefer and save a ton of time instead of having to type out an entire reply.

Right now, this feature is only offered in English for both Android and iOS, but if it’s expanded to more languages, think about the collective time saved around the world.

Gmail recently also added more intelligent features to like warning users when they get email from a non-secure connection. That will not necessarily prevent the message from being read, but it will warn the user that the email comes from a non-encrypted source and could therefore contain a virus.
