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 is letting Android users create public events on Maps through the app’s existing Contribute section, allowing them to set name, location, date and time of the event along with tags and images.

“You can add public events to Google Maps from your Android phone or tablet,” the search-engine giant wrote on the Maps support page.

Event listings would help users streamline time-specific activities and choose what suits them best.

“It’s all part of the app’s transformation from a service that tells you how to get somewhere into one that tells you where you might want to go in the first place,” The Verge reported on Monday.

Google’s plans for a wider roll-out of the feature remain unknown.

“Google Maps’ implementation is a little laggy at the moment, with events taking up to an hour to actually appear on a map. Hopefully, this improves as the functionality is more widely rolled out,” the report said. (IANS)
