Astro launched in March with the goal of cleaning up your inbox using an AI assistant. It’s an interesting, if not perfectly convenient, way of managing overflowing inboxes that’s meant to make life easier for business users in particular. And today, Astro is getting two new features that push its credentials for business users even further: integrations with Slack and Alexa.
The Slack integration is particularly neat. Once Astro has been linked to Slack, any searches will pull up results from both your inbox and your Slack channels. I suspect this could make things very messy, since Slack searches surface conversations you were never even a part of. But I like the idea of integrating an email client with the service that’s supposed to — and in some cases does — kill email.
