This post is about how I use Outlook Suggested Replies. I love Outlook because it’s a great email client for me. I can’t use it on the go, but I can work and write from my home PC.
I find it better than Google’s Gmail, you can use it to forward emails and you can set a ‘smart’ reply which tells you the best possible place to write in your message.
Outlook Suggested Replies seems similar to Outlook text prediction, but there is a major difference, Outlook text prediction auto-suggests the word or phrase while you are typing your email message, but Suggested Replies give you three to four autoreply to short cut options, which you can click and send quickly, instead of typing your entire reply.
Outlook has seen a gradual shift toward adding more features and functionality over the years, so it’s no surprise that the program has begun to suggest replies to common emails.
What is Outlook Suggested Replies all about?
Whenever you received an email Outlook AI suggests the best possible reply. You can select the best suggestion and reply to which suite is favorable for your recipient.
In case you’re unhappy with the text (the suggestion), you can report it to us (the editor) by selecting “Report inappropriate text.”
Microsoft is working with AI technologies to create tools that allow creators to make amazing content.
The only condition required is “Whenever you received an email message having some kind of question, and which would be only replied with the specific answer” Suggested Replies come into play.
Even in Android or iPhone bother the devices, suggested replies work the same way.
