'Google today officially launched AMP for Email, its effort to turn
emails from static documents into dynamic, web page-like experiences.
>From a report:

AMP for Email is coming to Gmail, but other major email providers like
Yahoo Mail, Outlook and Mail.ru will also support AMP emails. It's
been more than a year since Google first announced this initiative.
Even by Google standards, that's a long incubation phase, though
there's also plenty of backend work necessary to make this feature
work.

The promise of AMP for Email is that it'll turn basic messages into a
surface for actually getting things done. "Over the past decade, our
web experiences have changed enormously -- evolving from static flat
content to interactive apps -- yet email has largely stayed the same
with static messages that eventually go out of date or are merely a
springboard to accomplishing a more complex task," Gmail product
manager Aakash Sahney writes. "If you want to take action, you usually
have to click on a link, open a new tab, and visit another website."
With AMP for Email, those messages become interactive. That means
you'll be able to RSVP to an event right from the message, fill out a
questionnaire, browse through a store's inventory or respond to a
comment -- all without leaving your web-based email client.'
