Till now, we could use the ‘Smart Reply’ feature on Inbox or Allo, so that without opening the app we could respond to a text or email easily. But now at Google I/O 2017, Google has announced the arrival of Smart Reply for the Gmail app on both iOS and Android.

Smart Reply will provide three suggestions to choose from when you receive an email. For example, yu have received an email from your boss regarding the date of a presentation. If he has said something like ‘Let’s showcase the presentation, tomorrow or day after tomorrow.’, you will have three options to choose from like ‘Okay, tomorrow I will do’, ‘Day after tomorrow will be good’ and ‘Anytime, tomorrow or day after tomorrow’. In this way, you will be able to save time by replying to him directly, without any hassle of typing.

Smart Reply uses machine learning to give you better responses the more you use it. Smart Reply will roll out globally on Android and iOS in the English language first, and Spanish will follow in the coming weeks. More and more languages will be added soon.

But now at Google I/O 2017, Google has announced the arrival of Smart Reply for the Gmail app on both iOS and Android.Along with this, we have seen some great figures for Google Photos. Since it has been launched two years back, more than 500 million people use it every month, backing up more than 1.2 billion photos and videos per day. Suggested Sharing is one new feature, announced at Google I/O that will come to Google Photos in the coming weeks. You no longer need to select and share the photos with your friends and family as Google’s machines learning will immediately detect the people in the photos and will share the photos with the people seen the pictures. Shared Libray is another nee feature that will let you share your entire library with specific users or share selected photos of specific persons or from a specific date to be shared with anyone. Shared Libraries will also be rolling out on Android, iOS, and the web in the coming weeks.

At Google I/O, Google also announced new phones that will be Daydream-ready, including the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which will be Daydream-ready via a software update this summer, and LG’s next flagship phone, which will launch later this year. Google’s Daydream will soon also support a new category of VR devices, called standalone VR headsets. Standalone headsets don’t require a phone or PC. Just put the headset on and get into an immersive experience. The hardware is fully optimized for VR, and features a new headset tracking technology called WorldSense. WorldSense enables positional tracking, meaning the headset tracks your precise movements in space.

Along with VR, Google is also working hard in the development of Augmented Reality. Google has been investing in Tango for years as a core technology for both virtual and augmented reality. By placing digital objects in place it can be experienced and the next phone with Tango technology will be the ASUS ZenFone AR, available this summer.
