The motto is to help users finish sentences while writing an email in order to save time and increase efficiency and decrease errors. According to Google, Smart Compose has saved people from typing “over 1 billion characters each week” on the web.
The updated version of the feature will be rolling out soon on Andriod devices first and IOS later on. Moreover, the feature has entered the arena of multilingual by adding four new languages: Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.

Earlier, the model worked on a rather standardised structure. If you greet a colleague by -” Dear friend” or ” Hello there!”, Google Compose will automatically adapt to the writing style. This makes it more user-friendly and compatible.
The next feature allows you to schedule the delivery of the emails. Google has added the feature next to the send option in the Compose window. A user can select a time to schedule the delivery of the email. After the user has scheduled it for a specific time, the email will land into the inbox of the recipient at the said time.
