Google presented automated-replies to Inbox two year ago and later was also combined with Gmail. These automated replies will think what you might respond to the message and adds a button to deliver that response. While this function is restricted to messaging apps like Allo and Android Message, Google is now said to be working on providing this feature to other chat applications.


A similar function known as Smart Reply is currently available on Google Allo and the Android Message app. However, the new app delivers the smart reply recommendations straight to the notifications channel, which makes them a lot more useful.

According to a sign-up page for the app appropriately called Reply, Google is possibly enthusiastic about making the feature work on Facebook or Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Line, WeChat, and Twitter DMs. Smart Reply can already determine basic context to a conversation — for example, if a person delivers you an email asking to meet, you’ll often get three recommendations that ultimately amount to “Yes,” “No,” or “Let me get back to you.” It’ll also take into account your calendar accessibility and current location to craft these responses, so when someone asks if you’ve come somewhere, the recommendations should make the most sense at when you answer. According to the example screenshots, customers can reply directly from their notifications.

According to the report, the app can check your calendar and tell people if you are no longer working. The intro of the app sent to a tester also refers to that the Reply app will continue to operate together with Hangouts, Allo, WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, Skype, Android Messages, Twitter DMs, and Slack.
