Google to bring Allo's Smart Reply feature to third party apps

Area 120, an experimental program inside Google, developed the new Reply project for this exact goal. There's also an automated Vacation Responder that is able to check the user's calendar and tell people that the user is now not at work.

Now, Area 120, the experimental team inside Google, wants to bring its contextual replies to other chat-based platforms like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. However, the company does not plan on limiting the useful feature only to its messaging apps. It scans the message you are replying to and takes into account other factors like your current location, what's in your Google Calendar, the time of day, and even the weather, and then suggests applicable replies that you can tap and automatically fill in. The feature would later carry on to other apps like Allo, Gmail, and very recently, the default SMS app: Android Messages, though it is still undergoing a pretty slow rollout.It looks like the feature could get pretty smart, too. Here, it offers suggested responses to questions like "Are you at the restaurant?" or "When can you be home?"

Your Favorite Chat Apps: Reply works with Hangouts, Allo, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages, Skype, Twitter DMs, and Slack. The screenshots in Reply's announcement shows how it integrates with Google Hangouts and Android Messages.

"Reply puts the Smart Reply you may know from Google right into notifications from the chat apps you use most often".

Beyond the aforementioned, Reply will include a myriad of automated features.

THQ Nordic acquires Saints Row, Metro publisher for €121 million
The deal is for the entirety of Koch's business, which includes the video game publisher Deep Silver. As such, the highly anticipated game, Metro: Exodus , will be now published by THQ Nordic.

To join the beta program for Reply, Android users can simply sign up here.

There's also "Don't miss the important stuff" to ensure the user does get important messages even when the phone is on silent. For example, if a user receives a message like "We're waiting for you!"

First introduced in Gmail's Inbox, it gives users a choice of three responses to choose from based on the results of millions of email replies.

The project, like all Area 120 projects, is unrelated to any broader developments at Google - in this case, that means it's not directly tied to Google's messaging efforts. Tap through to one of the stories and tap through images, videos and text, all in an AMP-enabled format.
