AI-powered suggestions are also coming to Gmail.

One of the major announcements this year was Digital Wellbeing, an initiative to tackle tech addiction among consumers. These are clickable auto-generated responses created by AI based on a number of factors - the context of the email and the typing habits of the user are taken into consideration, for example, helping individuals respond more quickly to emails, especially ones where a simple "Thank you!" or "Noted" will do.

You now have access to experimental features. Hence, Google now lets you choose from six different voices for Google Assistant.

Artificial intelligence will help you compose messages on Gmail. With Lens, users can directly point at objects and landmark for visual identification and even copy text from that option. That feature offers three quick replies to an email based on its content, so if someone asks if you want to meet somewhere, it might suggest "yes", "no", and "maybe".

AI is everywhere, but its first real impact was seen within Google Photos app a year ago. One of the most crucial components of AI is its ability to learn along the way, but it needs someone and something to learn from.
