To start with, Google has partnered with the likes of CNN, Conde Nast, Hearst, Mashable, Meredith, Mic, Vox Media, and The Washington Post to publish the first AMP Stories. In March of past year, Google said there were more than 2 billion AMP pages on some 900,000 domains. Though the AMP Story documentation and tutorial are straightforward (and note, still experimental), given the low AMP adoption to date, it's unclear whether this new format alone, with its additional resources requirements, will create new converts anytime soon. For instance, users would be able to RSVP an event, fill out a questionnaire, or schedule an appointment without having to exit Gmail. Many people rely on email for information about flights, events, news, purchases and beyond-more than 270 billion emails are sent each day!
The new format, called AMP Stories, allows publications to build visual stories with rich graphics and easy-to-consume content that show up in Google Search. Publishers can signup here to test the new format.

"Coldewey asks: "does the idea of "'engaging, interactive, and actionable email experiences' ring a little different now?"
By putting applications into Gmail, Google gains access to even more user data about the viewer that can and will be used for ad-serving purposes. Flexible layout templates, standardized UI controls and components for sharing and adding follow-on content are available on top of the existing AMP platform.
