Google is expanding to more devices its “Smart Compose” email feature that allows Gmail to predict suggestion to draft mails based on user writing patterns and commonly used phrases, according to reports.

“‘Smart Compose’ is now live on both Pixel 2XL, OnePlus 6T, Pixel 2 and Galaxy S9+ devices. You’ll get a pop-up explaining what the feature is when you start typing any email. Simply swipe on the text to accept the suggestion,” Android Police reported on Thursday.

During its October 2018 Pixel event, Google rolled out the feature exclusively to the “Pixel 3” devices.

The feature comes auto-enabled but users could choose to turn it off according to their convenience.

“Our devices are running version 9.2.3 of Gmail. So if you don’t see the option yet, make sure you’re on that version, and close then reopen the app. That should trigger it to show up,” the report added.

Google has started combining G Suite users’ Gmail photos with their Google account profile photos.

“We are combining the Gmail photo with the Google account profile photo for G Suite users. Now, when you go to change this setting in Gmail, you’ll be directed to the ‘About me’ section of your Google profile settings to set your profile picture,” the company said in a statement on Monday.

Currently, profile pictures set in Gmail are only displayed in Gmail. This means a profile picture in Gmail may be different than the Google account profile photo, which can make it difficult to know which picture will be displayed where.

“When you visit Settings > General > My Picture in Gmail on the web, you will be directed to change your picture in the ‘About me’ section of your Google profile settings. If your Gmail and profile photos are currently different, and you have permission to edit your photo, you will see a pop-up when you visit your About me settings which will prompt you to select one of the images or choose an entirely new photo,” the company added.
