The announcements also unveiled that Reply working with Google Hangouts and Android Messages. A new app created by Google's Area 120 incubator called 'Reply, ' is now in beta and gives you smart reply options for most messaging services... When a text comes during your trip, it would mute the notification and automatically respond with, "I am driving right now and will respond to you when I get to my destination", or something along those lines. Smart replies can be shown directly in the message's notification for an instant response.

The email outlined a few features of the Reply app. "Vacations mode" feature which checked your calendar and then responds to the people that you are on vacations or not available, will also be included.

Google's internal incubator, Area 120, is working hard to incorporate this functionality into chat apps such as Google Hangouts, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages (for all carriers), Skype, Twitter DMs, and Slack.

Reply puts the Smart Reply you may know from Google right into notifications from the chat apps you use most often. This is a nifty feature that uses AI to scan the contents of your email, and based on that it will provide users with a bunch of different reply options that are appropriate to the email.

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.

If you want to try to get in on Reply yourself before anyone else, they're taking sign-ups right now. Smart Reply has already become one of the most useful features in Gmail, for people with a lot of inbound, or for people who answer a lot of emails on the go.

Google's new experimental project called Reply is able to bring automated Smart Replies to popular messaging apps. The app is now only being offered to Android users as part of a test, which select people have been invited to.

Google is working on a new messaging app that adds smart replies but has not mentioned other details such as the launch time.

If you're interested in testing out Reply and other applications from Area 120 in the future, your best bet is to sign up to join the incubator's Early Access Program.
