Almost identical to the Text Prediction feature in Microsoft Word is Smart Compose for Google Docs. The feature uses machine learning to give you suggestions to help you write your documents quickly. This is how it works.
Availability of Smart Compose
At the time of writing, Smart Compose in Google Docs is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French for Google Workspace business and education accounts. You can use Smart Compose in Google Docs online along with the mobile apps for Android, iPhone and iPad.
Enable Smart Compose in Google Docs
To get started with the Smart Compose feature, go to the Google Docs desktop website, sign in with your Google work or school account, and open a document.
Then click Tools> Preferences from the menu.
Select the General tab at the top of the popup window and check the box for ‘Show Smart Compose Suggestions’. Click on the “OK” button to continue.
At the time of writing, Smart Compose is enabled by default in the Google Docs mobile app. You may see a notification about this feature when you open a document.
Use Smart Compose in Google Docs
You can now use Smart Compose in your Google doc. Start typing text and when the feature recognizes suggestions, you’ll see them. These predictions appear to the right of the text you type. The suggestions are dimmed and include an indicator for the Tab key.
Press Tab or your right arrow key to accept a suggestion. If Google gets the suggestion wrong and you want to ignore it, just continue typing the desired text.
If you use Google Docs on your Android device or iPhone, you will see suggestions similar to the way you do online. The predicted dimmed text is displayed on the right and has a swipe indicator.
Swipe the text to the right to accept a suggestion. If you want to ignore a suggestion, just continue entering the desired text.
