Android Messages "Smart Reply"


I saw “Smart Reply” in action on my spouse’s phone (MOTO X2) today.
It generated some buttons below the text message for auto-replies (like “OK”).
I saw the setting “SMART REPLY” below the current country selection and turned it off.
This setting is not on my phone (MOTO X1).
Is this something that is being pushed out?
I had not noticed any Android Messages update to our phones (both are running 3.2.042).


My son’s phone has smart reply but my Moto e4 does not. The app on both phones appear to be the same version. It might be a limited roll out from Google.


It appears to be rolling out slowly. I don’t think this article is very fact filled, but it offers some info:
