The average worker spends 28% of their work week on email and sends an average of 620 emails per week. At an average of 1.1 minutes per sent email, that’s more than 11 work hours, or a day and a half per week, on just emails.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could get some of that time back? Google is here to help with Gmail’s new Smart Compose feature.

How it works: Smart Compose uses artificial intelligence to understand the context of your email and suggest text you have used in similar situations.

Benefits: Smart Composes saves time on the mundane parts of emails and helps you concentrate on the most important parts.  It also reduces your chances of inserting grammar or spelling errors.  

How to use: Smart Compose is now on by default*, so open up your Composer and start writing!  The composer will learn your writing habits, and preempt your cursor with sentence fragments it has noticed you frequently use.  To accept a suggestion, just press the tab key and Smart Compose completes the sentence for you. To decline the suggestion, just keep typing as you normally would.  

*You can disable Smart Compose by going under your settings tab in your Gmail Inbox.
