Maximizing Email Efficiency: Superhuman vs. Ready to Send

AI Instant Reply to Emails

Ready to Send has been supercharging inbox productivity for Gmail users since August 2023. It started with the revolutionary experience of having draft email replies created automatically with AI. Our goal was simple: auto-generate a complete, fully-contextual email in your voice that is ready to send.

Superhuman, an alternative email client, has recently introduced a new feature called Instant Reply. Similar to Ready to Send, this feature also leverages AI to pre-generate responses to emails. But it was the catchphrase that sounded familiar since it's what we coined:

Imagine waking up to an inbox where every email already has a draft reply.

This certainly had our curiosity. But after diving into Superhuman's announcement article, it had our attention: "...these replies are full emails, and are ready to send."

Let's delve deeper into what Superhuman's Instant Reply offers and how it compares to Ready to Send, an automated email writer for Gmail.

About Superhuman

Superhuman is a renowned email client known for its focus on speed, efficiency, and productivity. It offers a range of features designed to streamline email management and enhance the user experience. From keyboard shortcuts to advanced search capabilities, Superhuman has garnered a niche following among professionals seeking to optimize their email workflow.

Superhuman's Instant Reply feature is the latest addition to the platform's suite of productivity tools. This AI-powered feature generates draft email replies automatically, allowing users to respond to messages quickly and efficiently. By analyzing the context of incoming emails, Instant Reply suggests personalized responses tailored to the user's writing style and preferences.

Similarities to Ready to Send

Superhuman's Instant Reply shares several similarities with Ready to Send, an automated email writer for Gmail. Both tools leverage AI technology to generate personalized email responses, helping users save time and effort. Additionally, both Superhuman Instant Reply and Ready to Send offer seamless integration with your inbox, ensuring a smooth and intuitive user experience. Ultimately, both solutions aim to respond to an email as fast as possible. However, that's where the similarities end and the next-level features of Ready to Send begin to stand out.

Ready to Send's Stand Out Features

While Ready to Send shares similarities with Superhuman, it also boasts unique features and capabilities. Understanding these differences can help users make informed decisions when choosing an email productivity tool.

  • One-click Sending: Ready to Send generates a full, complete email draft that is waiting for your review. This allows you to send an email instantly with one click. Compare this to Superhuman's two-step process of selecting from a variety of responses and then choosing to edit or send the reply. That doesn't sound like an Instant Reply. Simply put - sending replies is faster with Ready to Send.
  • Personalization: Similar to Ready to Send, Superhuman's Instant Reply provides contextually relevant responses for each email thread. However, Ready to Send allows you to create personalized instructions for each of your contacts. This feature allows you to define how to respond to each person, including additional information such as their job, location, or relationship to you. This results in an email crafted with a personal touch - far from a generic AI-generated wall of text.
  • Customization: Ready to Send provides you with the option to create your custom instructions on how to respond to all emails in general, or given specific scenarios. For example, you can choose to share your calendar link if someone requests a meeting. This produces a more accurate response, requiring less time to review and edit each draft email.
  • Flexibility: Ready to Send gives you the option to generate responses for your important emails, emails that have a certain label, or you can manually generate the response. When used in combination with Gmail's filters and multiple inbox features, you can set up your inbox to be a powerhouse of productivity.
  • Advanced Settings: Technical users of Ready to Send can enjoy using their own OpenAI API keys as well as any custom language model of their choosing.
  • Pricing: Gmail is free email service used by billions of people worldwide. Ready to Send offers these advanced AI-powered features starting at $9/month, while Superhuman is a premium email client starting at $30/month.

 

How Ready to Send Influenced Superhuman's AI Features

By demonstrating the effectiveness of AI in generating personalized email responses, Ready to Send may have inspired Superhuman to explore similar capabilities within their platform. Additionally, the success of Ready to Send may have highlighted the growing demand for automated email solutions, prompting Superhuman to prioritize the development of Instant Reply.

Conclusion

Both Superhuman's Instant Reply and Ready to Send represent a significant advancement in email productivity, leveraging AI technology to streamline communication and enhance efficiency. While similar in many respects, Ready to Send offers unique features and capabilities tailored to the needs of Gmail users. By embracing automation and personalization, Ready to Send is empowering users to reclaim their time and focus on what matters most. As AI continues to evolve, the future of email productivity looks brighter than ever.
