Google Hangouts Chat to get AI-based smart reply feature

11 December 2018 3

Earlier it was reported by a popular online tech website that Google might be shutting down Hangouts soon and soon got clarified by a Google team lead of G Suite for the features like Hangouts Meet & Chat, Google Voice. He shared how there is no authenticity into this news as to when Google would be calling it quits on the product, though it was sure that Hangout users will be upgraded to Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet features instead.


Now in the latest development, we get to know that Google has rolled out another handy feature to Hangouts Chat which would act just like a smart reply in Gmail. Utilizing machine learning, the feature determines best suiting reply as per the conversation context.

Google is pushing its AI capabilities into its products just like Smart compose in Gmail which suggests phrases for the content within the body of the email while other features like Smart Reply in Gmail proposes short phrases to be sent as a reply in context to the email conversation. Currently, smart reply feature might be first rolling out to other products like Gmail though this very news is currently only applicable to Hangouts Chat.
