How to turn off Gmail's Smart Reply in Computer

Google Inbox introduced Smart Reply, a feature that scans your email to determine the best response. The feature is available on desktop and mobile versions of Gmail. Suggested replies are short, e.g. “Sounds good” and “Thank you,” or  “you’re so sweet”, and if you have contacts on Gmail that make use of the feature quite a bit, you may have received short auto-generated answers regularly already.

Google’s algorithms need to scan the email to decipher topics and generate replies based on what is being discussed.

Google has been scanning your emails for years, sometimes for good reasons like locking out spam, phishing attacks, and viruses. There are also allegations it has been doing so to better serve you targeted ads. However, if you aren’t comfortable with Google scanning the words of every single email you receive, you might prefer to turn off the feature.
