Google Launches AMP Stories To Bring 'Story' Format To Mobile

  • Bringing the power of AMP to Gmail - The Keyword

Now, the company is implementing that same technology into Gmail, appropriately dubbed "AMP for Email". While there may not be many email users who complain about sluggish rendering of their emails, Google apparently thinks that it's time for its popular email service to get an upgrade.

Aakash Sahney wrote further, "Many people rely on email for information about flights, events, news, purchases and beyond-more than 270 billion emails are sent each day!" In simple terms, Gmail users will be able to achieve more without leaving the email once developers tap into "AMP for Email".

However, AMP stories aren't a switch that needs to be turned on which will convert a story to an AMP story.

A variety of media partners have been quick top sign-up for Google's latest open source project with the likes of CNN, Mashable and the Washington Post all getting their foot in the door early. They're supposed to deliver "immersive" stories to mobile readers across a range of content categories. "Our team can easily create attractive, media-rich stories that our users can now access quickly across the web", said Doug Parker, Vice President of Digital Design at Meredith. Until the time the ads are added, publishers will have to be content with experimenting with this new format without the addition of traditional monetization.




"AMP Stories have extraordinary potential to enhance how we create mobile content", said Doug Parker, VP of digital design at Meredith. At its AMP Conf in Amsterdam, the company today announced the launch of the AMP story format.

Some AMP Stories will include sound.

The tool builds on Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages project, which was created to speed-up mobile pages, and looks similar to the popular "Stories" formats used by Snapchat and Instagram. With AMP Stories, Google is now giving users more reasons to stay on its search engine and keep on browsing.
