For example, if someone asks if you're at work, Smart Reply will come up with three answers “Yes”, “Do you need something”, or “No, I'm on holiday”, although the user needs to confirm which answer to send.

If it detects the user is driving, it can respond to messages saying the user is busy. It is also able to go through a user's calendar and reply that the user is not at work.

Among the chat services available include HTML, Hangouts, Allo, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Android Messages, Skype, Twitter DMs and Slack.
