Replying with Ellie

Replying to emails with Ellie, and setting the tone.

Once you’ve installed Ellie and entered your license key, Ellie works out of the box! - If you haven’t completed setup yet, give our “Getting Started” guide a quick read.

So, if you head over to Gmail, select an email and click reply, you’ll notice some new buttons within the reply box. This is Ellie!
