  • Pros: 

    Faster email

    Cons: 

    Google now Scans my email and the AI knows the context of what I write

    As somebody who likes to discuss political things with friends and try to look at stuff at different angles I'm fearfull that google will try to influence thinking or maybe even punish "wrong thinking" - wrong is of course googles flavor of the day...

    Pros: 

    Faster emails

    Cons: 

    More emails. And Google tells you what to write (and think).

    Great, so Google will now nudge everyone's choices of words (and thoughts) in 'private' correspondence.

"To get started, make sure you’ve enabled the new Gmail by going to Settings > “Try the new Gmail.” Next, go to the general tab in your settings, scroll down and enable “experimental access.” If you want to switch back, you can always uncheck the box."

@arunsathiya @stoweboyd Ok! I got it to show up by doing a full page refresh (shift+reload)

Meh. This will just end up influencing what people were planning on writing in the first place. Might sound dramatic, but I'm not interested in having my own voice subtly steered towards the most common phrases and sentence structures. All in the name of 'time savings' 🤷🏼‍♂️

Looks like a great timesaver. Will this also be available in Inbox or is it just for gmail?
William Pitcher@wmpitcher · Founder, Pitcher Group
@arquason It will probably become more of a timesaver over time. I expect they will provide longer passages as the machine learning improves. It will definitely be great for slow typers. It looks a lot quicker than phone-based auto-complete.

@wmpitcher to me looks like autocomplete while coding. Just keep tabbing as long as it matches what you wanted to say and just steer it in the right direction. Generally its cool and if somebody doesnt like it they can just ignore it.

I wonder how this will compare to this recently launched Chrome extension: https://www.producthunt.com/post...

@parttimesnob Check us out, Ajay! We seem to be a lot more personalized than Gmail's version, and we're happy to see more innovation in the field. :)

Looks great. Especially helpful on mobile

@sharjeelashraf1 thanks! not launched for mobile yet, since the UX is much more difficult there as there is already an autocomplete paradigm on the keyboard to contend with. But of course it's something we'll be looking at. :)
