Smart Compose is a feature that Google introduced for its Gmail service. It uses a machine learning algorithm to learn various writing styles and predict what you want to write in an email.
As you type, it will make suggestions to help you finish a thought, a sentence or even a paragraph. You can accept the suggestions by pressing the tab key, or ignore them by continuing to type.

Smart Compose can save you time and effort by reducing the amount of typing you have to do. It can also help you avoid spelling and grammar errors, and improve your writing style by suggesting more concise and natural phrases.
However, like any other AI tool, Smart Compose is not always perfect. Sometimes it might make inappropriate or inaccurate suggestions, or miss the context and tone of your message. Therefore, you should always review your email before sending it and make sure it reflects your intended meaning and voice.
