Google releases Gmail's new feature Smart Compose to reply emails with AI

Google releases Gmail's new feature Smart Compose to reply emails with AI

Google announced the major update for Gmail last month, bringing a host of new features such as Confidential Mode, Smart Reply, Nudges, and the ability to view attachments without opening the mail.

Typically, if you send someone an email, it stays in their inbox indefinitely unless they choose to delete it. The mode blocks certain actions, forwarding, copy and paste, downloading of the email, and printing as well automatically. While all of them have a unique appeal, the Confidential Mode is something that users who value privacy will applaud.

Gmail's new design update has been around for a couple of weeks now.

Now that you're of what is the confidential mode in Gmail and what it does, it's time to fire it up and tell you how to use it. The new Gmail interface brings forth a bunch of new options.

Now try writing an email and see what happens! The expiration period can be set for 1 day, 1 month, 1 week, 3 months, or 5 years to protect a user's sensitive information. You can even attach files that you want to send across. However, if you wish to set a passcode, you will have to enter recipient's phone number. You should then scroll down to the Experimental Access selection.

If the other person is using the new Gmail, the email will be visible right away.

Now You: What's your take on Gmail's confidential mode feature? But we want to know what you think about Smart Compose.

When sending a confidential email, as mentioned above, you can also turn on the option that requires the recipient to enter a passcode received through SMS.

To try Smart Compose, tick the box that says "Enable experimental access" in the General tab of Gmail's settings-that option only appears if you're using the new Gmail, and I actually had to switch from new to old to new again to get it to show up. We tried it on macOS and on Windows OS, and we were able to take the screenshot, and save it. Google may have to look for a workaround for the same. It can now read content from the email you receive and suggest you short, quick responses accordingly.

Google's Confidential Mode in Gmail adds extra steps while creating a normal email, but it is for the best if you wish to maintain confidentiality.
