One of the best announcements that came out of this year’s Google I/O was a new Gmail feature called Smart Compose, which can autocomplete entire emails for you.
Unlike many of the other announcements from Google I/O, Gmail Smart Compose can actually be switched on and used right now. It’s all part of the new Gmail experience Google has been rolling out to customers.
Here’s how to turn on Gmail Smart Compose, how to use it, and what it’s like to use:
The very first thing you’ll need to do is activate the new Gmail experience, if you haven’t already. (Don’t worry, you can always go back to the “Classic” look at any time.)
You’ll get a cute little welcome greeting that lets you know you’ve activated the new Gmail design.
Now that you’re in the new Gmail, visit your Settings. Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
