The benefit of AMP in email is that upon content update it will be possible for recipients to browse email content very similar to web page browsing experience. Currently, the email is not very interactive as in most cases the user is required to visit an embedded link. AMP in email aspires for an experience where a user will not have to leave email client to finish the task.
