April Fool! Google has a sense of humor

Users of Google's Gmail service were alerted to an interesting new feature when they checked their e-mail this morning.
Google announced Gmail Autopilot, a service for busy people that responds to your personal e-mail for you. Gmail Autopilot mirrors your own communication style. You can adjust the settings to include more typos, use of emoticons and capitalization, etc.
It can even manage relationships for you, including sending break-up messages automatically.
If the sender and the recipient both have Gmail Autopilot turned on "two Gmail accounts can happily converse with each other for up to three messages each."
But Gmail users searching for a button to install the service were out of luck. There is none.
The "Google Terms" at the bottom of the page linked to a page revealing that it was all an April Fool's Day joke.
