  • Gmail for iOS now supports sending money with Google Pay & snoozing emails

Google's I/O 2018 developer conference just kicked off, but Google is already announcing small additions to some of its core products. Smart Compose uses machine learning to help you write responses to emails. It uses historical grammar and typing patterns to guess what it thinks you want to say, and then if you like the suggestion, just hit the tab key to enact it. This means users can now send money to "anyone with an email address" directly within the Gmail application. It will also help fill in saved information like names and physical addresses.

In fact, they don't need to type most of the time.

In a quick demo on stage, it appears Smart Compose is similar to the Auto Complete feature Google uses for online searches. A Smart Suggestions feature will notice through facial recognition that you're browsing through photos that include a specific friend, and it will provide the one-tap ability to share those photos with that person. It also has certain privacy-based aspects like a simplified risk warning, an easier way to unsubscribe from spam newsletters, and a new Confidential mode. This new feature will be rolling out to all the users in the next few weeks.
