Google has announced several updates to AMP. This new “New in AMP” format aims at actionable updates like flexible and scroll-bound animations, video analytics, and fluid ads.
Here are the details:
Scrolling animations can be used for parallax effect, subtle zoom/fade of images, stopping or starting images as pass through the viewport.
AMP sidebar enables changing display format based on the width of the viewport.
Native Video Analytics Support in AMP.
Improved client IDs give insight about user journeys between AMP and non-AMP. AMP viewers can now accept vendor identifiers and/or API keys included in pages by developers so that the AMP viewer can identify the party that is requesting Client ID information.
With Fluid-ad support publishers can request ads whose size is unknown at request time.

- Video features, including minimizing video to the corner of the viewport
