Dynamic AMP for Email is rolling out in Gmail now

OYO Rooms uses AMP for Email to let users browse and see hotel and rental details right from the email.

Remember when Google teased the AMP for Email spec a little more than a year ago? Well, it’s finally here. Email marketers can create dynamic and interactive email experiences more akin to web experiences than static email.

Why you should care

Dynamic email has the promise of transforming the way email marketers think about how they present content to users.

Some of the big benefits of AMP email (or dynamic emails) include the ability to keep content up to date in real-time, enable users to interact with content, engage and accomplish tasks without having to leave the email message. As of Tuesday, Gmail support for AMP for Email is rolling out, but other email providers, including Yahoo, Outlook and Mail.Ru, will also support dynamic emails.

Businesses that have been testing dynamic emails during the beta period include Booking.com, Despegar, Doodle, Ecwid, Freshworks, Nexxt, OYO Rooms, Pinterest and redBus, said Google.

Pinterest lets users to browse and add Pins directly to their boards from within Gmail. The email experience feels very similar to the actions users can take in the app and on the web.
