Some of you may have seen Gmail’s Smart Reply feature that enables you to reply to emails just by tapping on a message that is relevant to a specific situation. A report from Android Police suggests that this feature will be rolling out on its own moniker but available for a whole load of apps.
Area120, which is Google’s experimental division, will soon be putting the “Reply” app through testing phases. The plan is for users to respond to messages in apps such as WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook Messenger, etc. simply by tapping on short replies visible on the notifications panel. The short replies will be relevant to the circumstance of the conversation you are having with your specific contacts, making it easier for you to send through a simple response instead of having to take some time just to type a reply.
There is a possibility of features such as a Do Not Disturb mode which is automatically enabled once you are driving, however, certain critical messages will trigger notifications even if your mobile device is on silent.
At the moment, the app is expected to only drop on Android smartphones, but as Google has said, Reply is still in very early stages so there will be a lot of things to come in the near future. Sign up here and be 100% to let us know if you make the cut!
