A Google R&D team wants to bring Smart Reply to all your chat apps

Now, a dedicated team at Google is working to bring the Smart Reply feature to other chat applications.

Google's experimental product lab called Area 120 is now testing a new system simply called Reply that will work with Google's Hangouts and Allo, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages, Skype, Twitter direct messages and Slack. To work its magic, Reply will require access to previous chat history, and that's a lot of information to give away if you're a regular user of instant messaging apps. The feature was created to automatically suggest quick replies to emails based on the context of the messages received by the user. For those on vacation, the technology will also enable by itself if you allowed it to review your calendar.

The feature would take into account the message you receive and scopes out keywords to predictively suggest a quick answer to the email. An example would be receiving messages while driving; using your phone's Global Positioning System and Bluetooth sensors, Smart Reply would know you are in your auto. There is also the question of whether or not other developers want to integrate Google's features into their apps or if it would be better to develop their own, but what do you guys think? Reply will be able to interpret that as a reason to push that notification through to the user. Pretty soon, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and other apps will offer smart automated replies.

"Reply puts the Smart Reply you may know from Google right into notifications from the chat apps you use most often", the invitation reads. Apps the feature is being tested in include Google Hangouts and text messages.

As TechCrunch points out, Smart Reply already works on Android Messages for those on Project Fi, but the plan is to roll it out on a wider scale.

There's also "Don't miss the important stuff" to ensure the user does get important messages even when the phone is on silent. Reply is still very much so in its early development days, and it's entirely possible that Google will scrap the project at any given moment. "Like all other projects within Area 120, it's a very early experiment so there aren't many details to share right now".
