Tired of having to write emails? Then let Gmail Smart Compose do it for you, the new AI-powered predictive text tool that lets you write and send emails faster than ever before.
Smart Compose is Google’s own take on how predictive text should work for email. You have probably experienced predictive text on your phone for a few years now, but this is a lot better.
Smart Compose is powered by AI, which means it uses machine learning to try to predict what you will write, based on what you have written in the past. The tool will suggest words and phrases to help you write emails faster. If you like the suggestion, hit tab to paste it into the core of your message. If you don’t, then just choose to ignore it.
Google says that Smart Compose will not only save you a lot of time when crafting emails, it will also reduce the chance of spelling and grammatical errors. I can see how that can be true, knowing how most of us type up emails as fast as we possibly can…
Smart Compose is part of the overall redesign of Gmail and will roll out to users over the next few weeks. Coupled with Smart Reply, it transforms Gmail into an efficiency machine.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is that Google must have hit itself on the head, and decided that G Suite customers would not be given access to the new Gmail design or its awesome new features – like Smart Compose – for a few months. I’m sorry Google, but you need to go read your marketing 101 again, and learn how to treat your paid customers better. (I suggest “Flip the Funnel” by Joseph Jaffe.)
If you’re on the regular Gmail (not G Suite), you can gain early access to Smart Compose by enabling the new Gmail (Settings > Try the new Gmail) and then finding the general tab, and enabling “experimental access.”
