What you need to know

  • Android Auto seems to be starting to pick up support for quick responses.
  • The new feature provides contextual reply suggestions for messages, powered by Google Assistant.
  • Quick responses were not shown until December.

Google has finally started rolling out a handy Android Auto feature for your car after announcing it at the end of last year, so you can quickly respond to messages with one-touch response suggestions.

Android Auto’s Smart Reply feature is now live for a number of users, especially those who have updated to the latest beta version of the app (v7.6.1215), according to 9to5Google. These quick replies appear in the form of an emoji or a short sentence when you tap a message and have Google Assistant read it aloud.
