Google Reply, the app that adds the ability to use smart replies to a variety of messaging apps on your Android phone, has been released in beta by Google’s Area 120 team. For those that aren’t familiar with Area 120, it is the experimental development area within Google. For those who are familiar with Microsoft Garage from Microsoft, it is the same concept.
Google Reply adds smart replies to the notification shade for Android Messages, Facebook Messenger, Hangouts and Twitter Direct Messages. But it also brings the ability to send auto replies for when you are driving or, later on, when you are exercising or sleeping. It is a handy app indeed.
