Here are some key new features that stood out to the team at Blended:

Set a Custom Einstein Send Time Optimisation Send Window

The Einstein Send Optimisation will now enable a larger window of time  to allow STO to work its magic. This flexibility now enables STO to function over a single day, a full week or any number of days in between. Control over how Einstein handles contacts without enough data for send time optimisation modelling is now also available.

This feature is expected to be rolled out to all Pro, Corporate and Enterprise accounts by February 11th AEST.
