Definition: Superhuman

A paid email program targeted to Gmail users who spend considerable time dealing with mail every day. Superhuman enhances the day-to-day experience for customers, who are willing to pay USD $30 per month on top of their already-fee-based Google Workspace Gmail or incur the $30 if they use regular, free Gmail. In the beta stage, invitees must answer a survey appropriately and then speak to a Superhuman representative for a thorough training session. Available for desktop and mobile devices, Superhuman was invented by Rahul Vohra, who worked on a LinkedIn product known as Rapportive that added social network contacts to Gmail. See Gmail and Google Workspace.

Superhuman Features
Superhuman moves all messages to the user's machine for quick retrieval. Along with the newer features in today's email such as undo send and follow-up reminders, Superhuman tracks when messages are opened by the recipient, and it can retrieve a contact's LinkedIn profile. When a date is typed, a calendar can be pulled up, and key commands function like macros that, for example, enter a canned reply or unsubscribe from a website. The names of labels (virtual folders) can be organized by the user instead of listed alphabetically on a sidebar. See Gmail labels.
