Use Smart Compose

You can let Gmail help you write emails faster. The Smart Compose feature is powered by machine learning and will offer suggestions as you type.

To accept a suggestion, swipe across the gray text. 

Note: Smart Compose is available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.  

Turn Smart Compose on or off  

By default, Gmail will offer suggestions automatically. To stop seeing these suggestions:

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Gmail app Gmail.
  2. In the top left, tap Menu Menu and then Settings Settings
  3. Select your account.

  4. To turn off predictions, tap to uncheck the box next to Smart Compose. To turn on predictions, make sure the box next to Smart Compose is checked. 

Smart Compose is not designed to provide answers and may not always predict factually correct information.

About machine learning

As language understanding models use billions of common phrases and sentences to automatically learn about the world, they can also reflect human cognitive biases. Being aware of this is a good start, and the conversation around how to handle it is ongoing. Google is committed to making products that work well for everyone, and are actively researching unintended bias and mitigation strategies.
