Gmail is now offering Smart Compose and giving users the option to schedule emails.
Smart Compose suggests ways to finish sentences in emails. Google says, “Smart Compose can now adapt to the way you write,” matching your individual writing style.
Google says this might mean Smart Compose remembers your preferred way to greet certain colleagues (eg “Hey Team”), but doesn’t offer more detail than that. In addition, Smart Compose will now also suggest subject lines based on the body of your email.
Google says the feature will now be available on Android devices (sometime, earlier this month) and coming to iOS devices “soon.”
Another more useful feature to Gmail is the ability to schedule emails. Clicking on the arrow next to the “Send” button in the compose window will bring up this scheduler. You can choose from presets like “tomorrow morning” or specify a particular time and date.
Previously you could schedule emails on Gmail through third-party extensions, but it’s much more convenient to have this power built-in directly in to the client. It’s handy for communicating across time-zones or setting up reminders for friends and family.
