Reply wants to add Smart Replies to all your messaging apps

It appears Google is working to bring its Smart Reply feature to a variety of messaging apps from third parties, not just its own services such as Allo, Inbox, Assistant, and Gmail. You can fill out this form for a chance to beta test Reply once it's available.

"One of the many projects that we're working on within Area 120 is Reply, which suggests smart replies right in notifications from various chat apps", a Google spokesperson said.

Reply will also have an auto-responder, plus a "do not disturb" mode for those times when you're on holiday, or driving. Now, a development team inside Google's Area 120 incubator is reportedly working to bring the feature to popular messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and a ton of others. Smart reply offers automated replies, and like any AI-powered feature, it can be correct at times, or off the mark at various instances. The project, simply called "Reply", will allow users who sign up - now available to Android users only - the ability to use "smart replies" in their favorite mainstream chat applications like Facebook Messenger, Skype, Twitter's Direct Message feature, Whatsapp, and Hangouts. In an email sent by Area 120 (via Android Police), the team informed testers that the new Reply project should work for Hangouts, Allow, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages, Skype, Slack and Twitter DMs.

Android Messages has already started rolling support for the new feature but only for select users.

Coutinho, meanwhile, scored his first goal for Barca against Valencia on Thursday, but Valverde said the best was yet to come. The France striker suffered a separate muscle injury back in September that almost sidelined him for four months.

The photo above shows Reply in action when used with Hangouts and Messages. If, for example, a recipient gets an invitation to a party or a meeting, the AI will automatically interpret this and provide appropriate responses like "I'll be there", or "See you!" or something along those lines. Reply will be able to interpret that as a reason to push that notification through to the user.

The key feature of Reply is that it aims to bring smart replies to the next level. As per the report, Reply can also alert you even if you're phone is silent in case you receive any urgent text.

One of the features of Inbox and Gmail that Google rolled out a couple of years ago is Smart Reply. "Like all other projects within Area 120, it's a very early experiment so there aren't many details to share right now".
