Edison, the e-mail app developer, recently announced a new messaging service called OnMail, which it says will be linked to Google Gmail through a privacy- and rights-based system experience. OnMail is expected to be available this summer. Make your user’s inbox more “refreshing” while focusing on productivity and add-ons.
Clearly, Edison doesn’t think email-based services are going away, but is working to make OnMail’s inbox cleaner.
It doesn’t focus on providing a tool to better divert content from your inbox, but rather limits the traffic of messages.
“Rights Control” will be an important part of this, and the company’s native technology will be part of the OnMail service, which focuses on keeping random messages out of the door, including spam from strangers and marketing.
“The core of OnMail is to stop common problems, especially spam that is uninvited and always stuffed with your inbox,” the company said. Outdated mailbox search capabilities make it difficult for users to find the information they need, and have to spend a lot of experience splitting larger attachments.”
OnMail’s main ad-free experience, read receipts are automatically blocked, with free and paid versions. The search system supports more natural language queries to increase the hit rate of lookups.
In addition, the service focuses on contact, rather than the chain of messages made up of a single email. Different conversations and shared attachments with the same person can form a link.
Edison is no stranger to what kind of email service you want to build. The company’s smartphone app has built up a loyal following and launched the macOS version by the end of 2019.
It integrates an email-focused smart assistant that promises to track details such as travel bookings and logistics tracking. Search for messages faster when users need it.
