One of the biggest tools for Inbox by Gmail, ‘Smart Reply,’ makes life simpler by using machine learning to compile one-tap phrases to respond to email. But only those using mobile could get in on the action.

That changes today. The company announced via the Gmail blog that the feature is now available for the desktop. Now, when on Inbox, the platform will offer three phrase options to include based on the content of the email. You can either click on one of those, or start your response the old fashioned way.

Since its debut in November, ‘Smart Reply’ is used in 10 percent of all email communiques on mobile. Now desktop power users will have the opportunity to cut down their unruly email queues.
