Google today said it is bringing the smart reply feature from its Gmail app to the Android Messages app. The tool automatically generates several responses to incoming messages, which users can select and send with a single tap. The feature will first reach Android Messages on Project Fi smartphones. That includes Nexus and Pixel handsets running Android 8.x Oreo. Google didn't say if or when smart replies would reach Android Messages on other devices. The update is free to download from the Google Play Store.
