The included screenshots in Reply's announcement (delivered to testers via email) show Reply working within Google Hangouts and Android Messages. In an email test sent to volunteers, acquired by Android Police, Area 120 says: "You probably get a lot of chat messages".
The Area 120 project will offer its suggested replies right in the notifications from these chat apps. It will also have a Do Not Disturb mode that switches on when the user is driving and alert those who message you that you can't chat.
Some of Google's apps like Hangouts let you quickly send a response right from its notification.
The expanded feature aims to take the hassle out of firing back replies in a range of popular messaging apps, including WhatsApp.
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.
Schulz abandons German foreign minister ambitions
Martin Schulz was told by his SPD party members that they would not back the deal to form a government if he took the job. Tensions are also reported between him and Sigmar Gabriel , an SPD colleague who is now foreign minister.
As well as single-tap responses Google is planning to enable automatic replies, for example letting people know when you are busy and can't get to your phone.
It appears Google is working to bring its Smart Reply feature to a variety of messaging apps from third parties, not just its own services such as Allo, Inbox, Assistant, and Gmail. Reply will also have several automated features too. The Reply software is only available for Android devices and users will have to sign up here in order to try it out for themselves. This is a nifty feature that uses AI to scan the contents of your email, and based on that it will provide users with a bunch of different reply options that are appropriate to the email.
It's also very early in its development cycle, so you shouldn't expect Reply to launch anytime soon.
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.
Report suggests that Reply app could be used only those who use third party-keyboard other and not Google's Gboard. "Like all other projects within Area 120, it's a very early experiment so there aren't many details to share right now".
