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, press Tab.  

Turn Smart Compose on or off

By default, Gmail will offer suggestions automatically. To stop seeing these suggestions, open Gmail on a desktop:

  1. In the top right corner,  click Settings Settings and then Settings. If you haven’t started using the new Gmail yet, click Try the new Gmail

  2. Under “General”, scroll down to Smart Compose.
  3. To turn on predictions, click to choose Writing suggestions on.  To turn off predictions, click to choose Writing suggestions off.  

Note: Smart Compose is available in English. 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.
