Google is adding its predictive Smart Compose feature to Chat, its new messaging app for Android and iOS users. Smart Compose suggests words and phrases as you type, making it easier to compose messages quickly.
Smart Compose can make typing simpler in Chat, just start typing away and you’ll see suggestions appear below the keyboard. Accept these or compose your own text; Smart Compose’s machine learning-powered algorithm becomes smarter the more often it is used!
Google Chat now includes Smart Compose as one of several new features being introduced by the search giant, among them:
- Richer notifications: Chat notifications now provide more details, such as the sender’s name, message subject and preview of message content.
- Improved Search: Chat Search has been enhanced to make finding messages simpler, so now users can search by sender, recipient, keyword or date.
- New Reactions: Chat users now have the ability to react to messages with emojis instead of typing out replies.
- Improved offline support: Chat will now support offline mode, so that you can send and receive messages even without an internet connection.
Google is gradually rolling out these features to Chat, so not everyone may yet have them. If you don’t see them yet, just be patient as they should arrive soon.

- In addition, its feature that suggests correct spelling of words helps prevent typos.
