Google launches ‘Magic Compose’, an AI that can write your messages for you

Magic Compose in Messages

Search Giant, Google has launched a new Magic Compose, an experimental feature for its Google Messages app, aimed at improving the text composition experience for users. With Google’s generative AI technology, Magic Compose crafts stylized, suggested responses with the context of your messages.

Initially this feature was first announced in early May and officially unveiled at Google I/O 2023, and the Magic Compose feature is now live, bringing the magic of AI to text messaging. Currently, the feature is available for RCS (Rich Communication Services) conversations in the Messages app.

How to enable ‘Magic Compose’?

To enable Magic Compose, users can go to the app’s Settings menu and enable the feature if it’s available for their account.

Turn Magic Compose on

  1. On your Android phone, open the Messages app.
  2. Open or start an RCS conversation.
  3. Tap Message suggestions;
    • To opt in to Magic Compose, tap Try it.
    • To keep Magic Compose turned off, tap No thanks.

Get message suggestions

When you draft a message, Magic Compose can provide suggestions using generative AI and the context of your conversation.

  1. On your Android phone, open the Messages app.
  2. Open or start an RCS conversation, Tap on Message suggestions.
  3. Tap the suggestion you want to use.
    • Optional: Edit the message.
  4. When you’re ready to send, tap send.

Get message rewrite suggestions

Magic Compose can rewrite your draft with suggestions based on the style that you choose.

  1. On your Android phone, open the Messages app.
  2. Use a message suggestion or write your message.
  3. Tap Rewrite suggestions, to bring up style options.
  4. Tap a style to bring up rewrite suggestions.
  5. Select the suggestion you want to use.
    • Optional: Edit the message
  6. Now tap on Send.

When Magic Compose is first launched, users will find a spark icon in the text field of an RCS chat. Tapping this icon prompts users to “Try it out”, allowing them to use the suggested answers provided by the AI-powered feature. Users can also customize suggestions or their own text by selecting one of seven available styles.

For now, Google has rolled out Magic Compose as a priority for Google One premium subscribers in the US who are also part of the Messages beta program on the Play Store.

It’s worth noting that Google isn’t the only tech company exploring AI-based text composition . SwiftKey, Microsoft’s keyboard app, introduced a similar feature that lets users compose text messages and emails with message suggestions and the ability to change their tone, format, and length.
