Smart Compose in Gmail will now be able to learn the way you greet to people in your emails, suggest a subject line for your email and supports Italian, Spanish, French and Portuguese. Gmail is also offering users the ability to schedule sending an email at a later time.
On April 1, 2004, Google launched the Gmail offering 1GB of storage and conversation threads and many thought it was part of an April fools’ prank. Gmail has since then evolved a lot and Google has now announced that its email service has turned 15 years old today.
Marking its 15-year anniversary, the Gmail team is announcing new features to the email app with improvements to Smart Compose and a new feature to let users schedule their email to be sent at a later time.
Smart Compose is a feature inside Gmail introduced last year to help users draft emails faster with the help of artificial intelligence. In addition to autocompleting your emails, Smart Compose will now be able to learn the way you greet to people in your emails. The AI used will detect which type of a person you are and choose Hey over Hi depending upon your past email conversations.
Additionally, Smart Compose will also now be able to suggest a subject line for your email. Phew, that’s a relief! Smart Compose is also adding support for four new languages including Italian, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
Google also revealed that starting today, Smart Compose will be rolling out to all Android phones and support for the same on iOS will come in the near future. Prior to this, Smart Compose was only available on Pixel devices.
The highlight of Gmail’s latest update, however, is email scheduling. Gmail is now offering users the ability to schedule sending an email at a later time, which was possible until now only through third-party services. The feature can be accessed upon clicking ‘Send’ which will result in a drop-down action revealing a scheduled time for the mail to be sent at.
