The smart reply is not something very new. We can date back its origin with Google Allo to 2015. It automatically suggests responses to messages you get. The context-aware reply is pretty much available for other GSuite applications as well.  Now Android Message Smart Reply Feature is exclusively rolling for Project-Fi users. The feature currently works with Google Allo, Gmail, Google Assistant, and Android Messages. We hope Google Gboard too gets the smart reply attribute on it soon.
