Spark Mail Gets 'My Writing Style' AI Email Assistant

Readdle today announced the launch of a new "My Writing Style" artificial intelligence feature created for the Spark email app.

spark my writing style
Spark already had an option for using AI to write emails in different styles like formal, neutral, and friendly, but the updated AI option is designed to write emails in each user's own voice. According to Readdle, it is able to mirror style, tone, and personality traits "to a degree."

Users can enable Spark AI in the Spark Settings, and from there, the app will select three samples of recently sent emails to analyze writing style. This style will then be applied to AI-generated emails and replies.

AI-generated text can be edited and reviewed before it is sent, and there is an option to disable the feature for those who do not want to use it. Spark suggests that the tool is useful for journalists, content creators, researchers, academics, and professional teams.

Readdle recommends providing simple prompts to the AI to get the best results, such as "write an intro email to Bob and suggest setting up a call at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow."

Spark's AI tool uses Microsoft Azure OpenAI as its AI service provider, and it says that data is not used for model training nor stored for more than a month. Spark Premium is required to use the feature, with the Premium update priced at $7.99 per month or $59.99 per year.

All this AI is going to create a lot of lazy, ignorant people, in my opinion. Even if I was hip to being lazy, I still wouldn't pay $60 a year for an email app.

Hot on the heels of the Google article, all this does is produce generic, emotionless, wordy crap for thick people.

"Feel free to 'hit me up'[.]" WTF? (My full stop, as the AI didn't bother to include one in the image shown - so clever it produces content worse than the original...)

So real people are forced to waste their time reading emails that were not written by a real person?

How do we stop these companies adding "AI" features. I don't want you sending my data to third party servers as I type.

I reckon I would get annoyed with that “feature” real quick. The modern version of clippy.

No, AI will read and summarise these verbose emails. So in this case you just get, “The project is not going well and deadlines need to be extended. The company should consider replacing Sonny if this continues”.
