Back in November, Google announced the launch of a new feature for Inbox by Gmail called Smart Reply, which uses machine learning to auto-suggest email responses. At the time, it was only available for mobile.

Today, Google announced the launch of the feature on the web version of Inbox by Gmail.

"Just like in the Inbox mobile app, Smart Reply saves you precious time by suggesting up to three responses based on the emails you get. Selecting an option starts a reply, ready for you to either edit or send," says software engineer Taylor Kourim.

"10% of all your replies on mobile already use Smart Reply, so we’re excited to bring this same convenience to the web," Kourim adds. "It's particularly helpful when you're jamming through lots of emails on your laptop."

A few weeks ago, Google improved snooze functionality for Inbox. More on that here.
