In addition to this, those who use Android Messages will also be able to use it - this time without the required subscription to Fi.
The Reply app is from Area 120, a group at Google focused on quickly iterated experimental products that the public are able to test.
Android Messages has already rolled out limited - but official - support for Smart Replies, we should note. You know those boxes that pop up when you are composing a reply to a message and make suggestions what to say? The smart reply will make reply easier but Google would require access to your history to identify the type of response you most probably like to give. "Vacations mode" feature which checked your calendar and then responds to the people that you are on vacations or not available, will also be included.
Allo now uses Smart Reply in its message platform to enable users to quickly respond to messages with a selection of context-aware replies. But the feature has not been made available to all Android Messages users as of yet.
First introduced in Gmail's Inbox, it gives users a choice of three responses to choose from based on the results of millions of email replies.More news: Plane carrying 71 people crashes near Moscow

Reply will also be capable of breaking through users' phone's silent mode in case of an emergency or urgent messages. Offering similar technology across a range of apps - and potentially only for Android users - could help push some users to adopt Android over iOS; or could prompt them to move to Gmail when they see how useful Smart Reply technology can be.
Report suggests that Reply app could be used only those who use third party-keyboard other and not Google's Gboard.
If you want to try to get in on Reply yourself before anyone else, they're taking sign-ups right now.
"One of the many projects that we're working on within Area 120 is Reply, which suggests smart replies right in notifications from various chat apps", a Google spokesperson said.
The project is still in very early stages of development, and not much is known about it, other than the fact that it exists.
