LinkedIn team today announced a new feature that will help users to save time and easily respond to their messages. They are using machine learning for providing reply suggestions, so the suggestions will be more relevant and contextual to the conversation.
For example, when someone asks whether you’re available to catch up over coffee next week, LinkedIn will show suggestions like “Yes I am,” or “Sure!” or “What time?” LinkedIn will display at most three responses based on the message received by the user.
In the future, Microsoft will be personalizing the smart replies for each user so that the suggestions will be more accurate and suitable for users. For example, users may soon see a response like “Thanks, Joe!” versus just “Thanks.
LinkedIn is rolling out this new Smart replies feature globally in English on both LinkedIn mobile app and on desktop. Users can also disable smart replies by going to their LinkedIn settings.
