Google Messages is rumored to be introducing generative AI features called Magic Compose, according to screenshots shared with 9to5Google and hidden code previously discovered in the app. Magic Compose is expected to enhance the existing smart reply functionality in Google Messages.
The screenshots reveal that Magic Compose will offer different tones for users to choose from, including Excited, Formal, and Lyrical. The Lyrical option even generates a response in the form of a short poem, based on a prompt provided by the user. It appears that Magic Compose can either start a response based on user input or generate a response independently by analyzing the conversation context. The screenshots also indicate that Magic Compose is labeled as an experiment.
