How to Create, Enable and Disable Gmail Smart Reply

Google had announced Gmail’s Feature called Gmail Smart Reply feature at its annual developer conference, and at first, it was available to try out as an “experimental feature” on the desktop but now it is quite well developed. Smart Reply, predicts what we’ll write next as you type in the email. This feature is now also available in the Gmail App.

Smart Reply is currently only available in English and with it, Google had given fair warning that “Smart Replay was not designed to provide answers and it is not always able to predict the correct information from the user’s perspective but it is quite well from the general perspective.
