Smart Compose in Gmail now available to all Android devices, no longer a Pixel 3 exclusive

Smart Compose is a useful addition to Gmail. Based on your email writing patterns and some commonly used phrases, it tries to predict what you will say next and surfaces it as a suggestion that you can simply accept. The feature began as an experimental feature on the desktop, then was added to G Suite accounts, but it wasn't until the October Pixel event that we learned it'd be coming to phones as a Pixel exclusive. However, it turns out the feature would actually be exclusive to the Pixel 3, and not even users of the Pixel 2 or any other devices could benefit from it.

Even though Inbox by Gmail has always been a testing ground for Google's main email client, many users now prefer it — myself included. It was already dismaying to see the removal of certain snooze options (place and someday) in June, but now it looks like the 'Save to Inbox' sharing option on Android has been axed as well.

Gmail v8.7.15 prepares to add email scheduling [APK Teardown]

It's Friday evening, you're working a bit after closing time and you've got to send out one last email to a contact at another company. There's no chance anybody is still at the office, nor will anybody be in before Monday. You can live with waiting that long, but you know that sending the email right now means it will surely get buried behind everything else that comes in over the weekend, and if the backlog is too long, your message may not even be read until later in the week.
