If there’s one source of technological frustration at work, it’s email.
Getting a job done often still relies on sending chains of messages back and forth to the extent that it would be nice to have an assistant to help deal with it all.
Its marquee feature is Astrobot, a chatbot powered by machine learning that’s designed to keep users abreast of what’s important in their inbox.
For example, Astrobot will read through users’ emails and notify them when they’ve been asked important questions.
That functionality sits on top of a solid, modern email client, which entered public beta on Mac and iOS Thursday.
The company was founded by veterans of email service Zimbra looking to improve workplace communications and productivity.
