Google is rolling out its "Smart Compositions" feature to Google Docs, which means that G Suite users will be offered suggestions for writing AIs in the future, preferably outside their inbox. Although for now, only domain administrators can sign up for a beta.
The search giant originally unveiled Smart Composition last year, following earlier Gmail Smart Response. Smart Response suggests short email replies, while Smart Composition is more noticeable, actively suggesting how to finish the next sentence.
The feature uses Google machine learning models to make suggestions, which study your past writing to personalize its instructions (in Gmail you can turn off this feature in settings). In theory, this means that Smart Compose is writing something similar youalthough in practice most of his suggestions are played safe, using flawless expression and corporate speech.
Adding smart composition to Google Docs can be a big step forward for this tool, challenging its suggestions for automatically managing AI with a wider range of writing styles. While emails tend to be more action-oriented ("Are you interested in X?", "Are you coming to Y", "Please, please, please close for Z"), Google Docs is home to, well, everything else – from school work, to corporate planning documents, to the first drafts of that novel, you'll end up one day.
For starters, however, Google restricts access to and targeting only business entities. Smart Document Composition is only available in beta, English only, and only domain administrators can volunteer to test it. (If this is you, you can sign up for it here.)
However, I hope that in the future Smart Composition will be generally available in documents. While many people may not like Smart Compositions and Smart Answers, they are surely some of Google's most intriguing new tools in recent years, hinting at a future where automated systems are increasingly helping with everyday writing tasks. .
