According to the statement, one will do less typing when responding to emails with Google's Smart Reply.

"You can now let Google reply to your email when using Inbox by Gmail on the web," it said

It also said that Smart Reply had been on the Inbox app for a few months.

The statement added that, it relied on a trained system consisting of a pair of neutral networks that interpret email and offer sensible short responses.

It added that the first network would encode words from incoming email, while the second cooks up a grammatically correct reply.

The statement said that the responses were generally very short, such as "I like the first one", "Got it, will do", or "Will do, thanks".

It said that it would also know which emails needed a response and which ones do not, such as newsletters and marketing messages.

According to the statement, Google said that the Smart Reply feature is handy for mobile users of which around 10 per cent of Inbox replies on mobile are written by its machine-learned system.

It said that Smart Reply would be useful for people, who need to whizz through a tonne of email on a laptop.

It added that as with the Inbox mobile app, Smart Reply on the web would offer up three suggested responses located in the reply panel.

The statement urged users to simply click a response and hit send.
