Millions of Android and iPhone owners blocked from amazing Google feature

GOOGLE has mysterious pulled a useful feature from one its apps.

Google Voice offers smart voice calling, so you basically get a Google-like interface for your phone.


Smart reply was one of Google Voice’s more useful features

You could download it for a Samsung smartphone and even an iPhone.

The app also has some more unique options on.

One in particular is called smart reply.

It reads your latest messages aloud to you and then suggests some contextual replies.

The feature was introduced to the app in February last year.

But for some reason it’s been withdrawn for users on Samsung and iPhone.

The app’s download description doesn’t shy from the matter.

“Smart reply is no longer supported,” it reads.

But there’s no explanation why it has been removed.

Sam Mobile notes that the move may be that Google wants to make smart reply a system-level feature instead.

Apparently it can still be found in some of Google’s other apps.

This includes Google Messages, Gmail and Google Docs comments.
