In addition to this, those who use Android Messages will also be able to use it - this time without the required subscription to Fi. A new app created by Google's Area 120 incubator called 'Reply, ' is now in beta and gives you smart reply options for most messaging services... Area 120, an experimental program inside Google, developed the new Reply project for this exact objective.

In another screenshot that Area 120 shared, the team shows that Reply can take Smart Replies and elevate them to the next level.

"You probably get a lot of chat messages". For example, if a user receives a message like "We're waiting for you!" Would you like to see Smart Reply arrive for your chat app? Plus it will have an advanced do not disturb mode that will silence your phone and tell people you can't chat right now, but also scan incoming messages for important stuff so that "Reply can make sure to get your attention even when your phone is silent".

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. But the feature has not been made available to all Android Messages users as of yet.

This is not the first time for Google to have this kind of feature, Project Fi users already have this app on Android Messaging but this time you have one-tap replies feature in Whatsapp, Messenger, Skype, Facebook and even Twitter's direct messages.

FED CUP - Venus Williams sends United States of America to the semifinals
Venus Williams used her 1,000th career singles match to get the United States off to a strong start in its Fed Cup title defense. Vandewegh turned things around from there and overcame 12 double-faults to continue her recent Fed Cup success .

Smart Reply is an AI-powered technology that creates automatic response suggestions.

To join the beta program for Reply, Android users can simply sign up here.

Google's Area 120, a workshop for experimental products under development at the Mountain View firm, is now testing the new system. 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.

Announced in a blog post, the tech giant said the feature is now in a test period, meaning only a handful of news outlets like CNN, The Washington Post and Mashable, have the chance to embed publisher-made stories into search results. "Like all other projects within Area 120, it's a very early experiment so there aren't many details to share right now".
