Google Search Takes On 'Stories' In AMP Format

Google brings AMP Stories to Google Search to deliver visually rich content Gmail to support AMP technology to make email much more interactive
Derrick Tucker | 14 February, 2018, 18:59

Adding AMP capabilities to Gmail will help developers "create more engaging, interactive, and actionable email experiences", Aakash Sahney, product manager at Gmail, wrote in a blog post.

AMP for Gmail looks to be a very similar feature, but specifically for emails.

With 21 percent market share, Gmail is the second-most used email client behind the native Apple iPhone mail app, far outpacing rivals such as Microsoft's Outlook.com, Yahoo Mail and others, according to data from Litmus Email Analytics.

AMP stories are built on the technical infrastructure of AMP to provide a fast, rich experience on the mobile web.

Google's AMP for Email will make the content in emails more up-to-date and actionable, improving productivity in the process.

Prior to that in 2016, the company rolled out their "AMP" (Accelerated Mobile Page) technology, an "open standard" that webmasters could take advantage of to make their pages load more quickly and efficiently for mobile users.

CernyGoogle, one of the largest search engines on the internet, strives to tell stories with a more flexible layout with its development of the AMP Stories. It's now going to modernize email using this frame with a feature it's calling AMP for Email.

Apple's pricey HomePod sounds great but exacts some trade-offs
But getting the right answers matters to consumers - and at the moment it looks like Siri doesn't even understand the questions. Thanks to this handy feature , the HomePod is capable of identifying your music preferences based on your Apple Music account.

Initially, it'll only be available for those who sign up to the optional Gmail Developer Preview of AMP for Email.

Initially, Google will start indexing AMP stories in search results on a limited basis.

For instance, an email from Pinterest will allow you to browse through images and interact with content - exactly as you would do on the site - but within the email itself.

The solution is created to bring stories to life in a visual way to help publishers get their readers' attention on mobile devices, where users typically browse lots of articles, but engage with few in-depth.

As of now, AMP Stories does not allow advertising to be incorporated.

The AMP Project Website claims that the project would be immersive, fast and open. That reach gives Google an advantage over other email programs as it rolls out new features.
