Smart Compose, one of the features added by Google to Gmail a while ago, has added support for four more languages. Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Italian languages have now been added to make Smart Compose accessible to more people around the world.
Google announced this while celebrating its 15th anniversary earlier in the week. According to the company, Smart Compose, which is powered by artificial intelligence, has saved users the stress of typing more than 1 billion characters. That is a huge figure considering the fact that the feature was only launched on desktop last year, and added to mobile just this year.
I guess that is just the beginning—we only hope that Smart Compose will be made available in more languages pretty soon or later in the future.
Aside the four new language support, the feature is now able to personalize suggestions for you. Using Google’s example, if you would rather say “Ahoy,” or “Ello, mate” in your greetings, Smart Compose will suggest just that. It can also suggest a subject line based on the email you’ve written.”
The update is still rolling out to all Gmail users, and may take some time before it gets to all [Android] devices.
On Monday Google added a much-awaited feature—email scheduling, which will perhaps, mark one of the biggest additions to Gmail since it was launched in 2004. Prior to being added, it was one of the most heavily demanded features by millions of people across the world. The feature is capable of helping users better-organize their mail—helping them to schedule important mails to be sent at later date.
A couple of weeks ago, Google added Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) to Gmail—a feature that lets you do more than just composing, sending, and receiving emails. Once fully activated, you will be able to browse image carousels, RSVP to an event, or fill out a form without leaving the Gmail inbox.
“Dynamic emails” as Google calls it in a blog post, will arrive first on web before finally arriving on mobile. AMP will, however, only work if the company that sent you an email supports the format. What that means is that you won’t have the full benefit of the feature since only a handful of partners are currently enlisted. A few of the partners that have signed up to dynamic emails on Gmail include, Booking.com, Despegar, Doodle, Ecwid, Freshworks, Nexxt, OYO Rooms, Pinterest, and redBus.
“We understand that work can often carry over to non-business hours, but it’s important to be considerate of everyone’s downtime. We want to make it easier to respect everyone’s digital well-being, so we’re adding a new feature to Gmail that allows you to choose when an email should be sent. Just write your email as you normally would, then schedule it to arrive in your recipient’s inbox at a later date and time,” Jacob Bank Director of Product Management G Suite said in a blog post.
