Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

Earlier this year, Google's Area 120 — a division of the company that works on experimental products — pushed out a testing program for an app called "Reply," which added Allo-style, automatically generated smart replies to other messaging apps. That functionality has made its way into other Google apps, with native support for developer implementation of the feature in Android Pie. Based on that success, it appears Area 120 is sunsetting the old Reply app itself.

Area 120 is an experimental startup incubator at Google, responsible for projects such as Reply, and its latest output is a new type of travel guide called Touring Bird.

The tips come from locals and travel bloggers, all split up into easy to use categories such as Top sights, Tours & activities, Local tips, and Free tours.

Google is testing ‘Reply,’ a new app that adds smart replies to popular messaging apps

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

One of Allo's highlight features is Smart Reply, where the app guesses what you might respond to a message with, and adds a button to send that response. A few other apps have implemented it as well, like Android Messages, but usually not in notifications. Google seems to be testing an app called 'Reply,' which adds smart replies to other messaging apps.

Invites to test Reply were sent out by Area 120, a division of Google that works on experimental products.
