Update Notes for the Google app, Gmail, Translate, Home, Play Books, and Fit (November 21, 2018)

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Smart Compose in Gmail is live on the Pixel 3

Smart Compose helps you write your emails faster and more efficiently by suggesting the rest of your sentence for you while you're typing it. If you tend to use the same structures and phrases frequently, it can save you a ton of time. The feature is already live in Gmail on the web and was promised to be coming to Android, starting with the Pixels. The short-term exclusivity seems to be more restricted though, as Smart Compose is showing up on the Pixel 3 but not on the Pixel 2 / 2 XL yet.
