Google unveil test for chats with robots

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

The new feature can reply to the questions such as 'When will be home?' or 'Are you at the restaurant?' the project is yet in the very beginning of its development, while Google is not expected to make the feature widely available to the outside testers than its Area 120.

If you happen to use Gmail, Inbox, Google Allo, or Android Messages on Project Fi, you no doubt know (and love!) Smart Reply.

Reply will work with Hangouts, Allo, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages, Skype, Twitter DMs, and Slack. But as a hint of how it would work, Area 120 said the plan is to offer Smart Replies right into the notifications tab, supposedly when the user receives a notification from the above-mentioned third-party chat apps.

Google is working on a new project "Instant Replies" suggestions for all of your favorite regular Android messaging apps similar to what you see in Google's Alo and Gmail. 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.

Egypt's Military Touts Anti-Terror Operation With Top-Line Weapons, Boats
President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has ordered the military to defeat Islamists in the region by the end of this month. They are blamed for a series of bomb, gun and suicide attacks that have killed hundreds in Egypt.

However, Reply doesn't just replicate Smart Replies. But the feature has not been made available to all Android Messages users as of yet.

Google's AI-powered Smart Reply was first released with its Inbox app.

In another screenshot that Area 120 shared, the team shows that Reply can take Smart Replies and elevate them to the next level. Would you like to see Smart Reply arrive for your chat app?

Pegged "Reply", the feature would use artificial intelligence (AI) to suggest one-tap responses to incoming messages. Reply will be able to interpret that as a reason to push that notification through to the user. There's a Do Not Disturb mode that switches on when you're driving to silence your phone and alert those who message you that you can't chat, as well as a Vacation Responder that checks your calendar on your behalf to tell people if you're not working. Apps the feature is being tested in include Google Hangouts and text messages.
