Hello Product Hunt. We're so happy to be here, and thanks Garry for hunting us! We'll be answering questions today and are excited to hear your feedback, so ask away. We just launched Astro in Public Beta, on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Astro has everything you expect from intelligent, modern email apps, plus a chatbot that helps you declutter your inbox and focus on important messages. In fact, Astrobot is the first native email chat bot--this is what makes Astro really special. We started Astro because there's still room for improvement and untackled problems when communicating and collaborating, and we think artificial intelligence can help. The email apps we launched today are just the beginning... Here's what to expect when you download Astro: *Astrobot tells you what to unsubscribe from, what to archive, and who to make a VIP, as soon as you add an email address. *As you use Astro, Astrobot continues to provide suggestions to keep your inbox clean and make sure you don't miss anything important. And of course, Astrobot can help you with basic tasks and responds to 100s of questions. *Astro's available across devices, it was really important to us to launch with both mobile and desktop apps. This means a unified inbox, available on Mac, iPhone, and iPad for Gmail and Office 365 email addresses. *Next, we're bringing Astro to Android and Alexa. We'll be adding support for additional email services soon too. *Astro is packed with features: Snooze, Unsubscribe, Send Later, Follow-up Reminders, Mute, customizable notifications, email prioritization, and more. *Free for people and teams. We expect to launch a paid version for teams later this year, but the features available today will remain free for early users. Thanks for checking us out. We can't wait to hear what you think.

Astro was made by some true SV legends who have made some of the world’s best email software. They’re back at it with a clean easy to use email client built from the ground up that makes great use of AI, has fast search and all the modern features you would expect. I’m pretty psyched to make Astro my primary email client.

Thank you everyone for all the support and feedback! AI combined with smart app design can take us leaps forward in managing our work & personal communication. We're excited to be making these apps available for Mac & iOS, and soon for Android & Windows. We look forward to much more discussion & feedback!

This is really clean, and the onboarding is great. The UX here is really well done. I've seen (and used) a ton of really nice, free email clients pop up on PH over the past couple of years (CloudMagic/Newton, Polymail, Nylas) , though, which have gone on to charge upwards of $10/mo once they've established a userbase. What's your long-term plans for monetization? Do you have plans to charge users for the app? Create a suit of premium services (tracking, for example)? Are you going to be acquired by Salesforce in 6 months and make me go crawling back to the Gmail app?

@chrisdolle We plan to launch a Paid version of our product later this year, that focuses on team intelligence and advanced email features. Our intention is to keep all the modern features, chatbot, etc. that we offer now free for individuals. Read receipts is on our roadmap, and you can expect it soon. Advanced email tracking will likely be a Premium feature. We hope you don't have to go crawling back to the Gmail app! We have a strong vision of bringing AI to workplace communications and we're excited to grow both the product and company.

@chrisdolle I feel your pain Chris. Similar experiences here - even worse I crawl back to Mac Mail!

@emilykramer Great, thanks for the response!

@emilykramer @chrisdolle If you are going to add read receipt requesting that is ok by me but please add the ability for me to deny a read receipt - it is, IMHO, a great waste of email bandwidth, a horrible management tactic, and a tactic often used by spammers to track down who accidentally read their email. I'd also love to see the AI deployed to defeat open/read beaconing services.
