Dynamic Emails with Gmail
Google introduced a new to Gmail feature called “Dynamic Emails” - a way for businesses to email you can include live changes and enable you to interact with the emails.
When you receive a dynamic email, a lightning bolt icon will show up next to the date the email was sent.
According to Google’s blog, they’ve implemented “best-in-class” privacy and security features. After inspecting the page, it looks like, at least for an email about Google Docs comments, the Gmail page makes a request to a specified URL, and the URL returns any changes. The feature implements an amp-list, which is part of Google’s AMP project.
As an added security measure, Google has to review a business before letting them send a dynamic email.
