Use this IFTTT applet to log your Pixel 2 Now Playing history to a Google Spreadsheet

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

The Pixel 2 and 2 XL have a nifty always listening music ID feature. You can simply look at your phone and see a "Now Playing" notification that tells you if the phone has heard a popular song. Google doesn't keep a log of the songs you encounter, but you can do that yourself with IFTTT.

IFTTT user hypnopompia created an applet you can add to your IFTTT account right now. It uses the Android notification service to watch for the Now Listening notification, then it logs the content of that notification to a spreadsheet in Google Drive.

IFTTT splits Google Drive service into Docs, Sheets, and Drive

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Some changes are rolling out to IFTTT right now that could change the way you use it. There are several new services, but that happens all the time. What's notable is IFTTT has decided to split Google Drive up into its constituent elements, so you may notice some changes to your applets.

For those who are not aware, IFTTT is a simple but powerful automation platform that connects to scores of services and products.

IFTTT adds support for Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

IFTTT, the popular web-based automation platform, recently added support for three new services. The new additions to the service are Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow smart weather stations. I guess that means you can set lightning strikes recorded by your WeatherFlow weather station to trigger Asana tasks for your employees which, upon completion, add a Remember The Milk reminder to follow up on the lightning strike tomorrow. Ah, the future. 

Remember The Milk is a to-do list app, and it's quite well liked, with over a million downloads on Google Play.

IFTTT adds applets for Facebook Messenger

Friday, September 15th, 2017

IFTTT is a powerful automation tool that can link together many of the popular services we all use every day. The possibilities are almost endless with a bit of imagination. The platform has had a bunch of Facebook applets for some time, but the same couldn't be said for Facebook Messenger, until now.

There's certainly an audience out there for Messenger related applets, as this Reddit post proves. A Facebook Messenger page on the IFTTT site has now been put together that offers exactly that.

IFTTT adds a channel for TP-Link Kasa smart plugs, switches, and bulbs

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

IFTTT is continuing its crusade to bridge your different online services and smart home gadgets and appliances together, with the latest addition being TP-Link's Kasa series of smart bulbs, switches, and plugs (which, I might add, are already Google Home-compatible).

The Kasa channel is still marked as "beta" on IFTTT, but there are already plenty of ideas for integrations with motion detectors, smart cams, your phone's location, and so on. For now, the IFTTT channel only offers actions for TP-Link, like turning a Kasa device on, off, toggling its state, changing the color or brightness or color temperature of a bulb, and setting a scene.

IFTTT adds channels for MyQ garage door opener, Neato robot vacuums, and WD’s new My Cloud Home NAS

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

IFTTT is a godsend solution for people who use different services and platforms and wish they could make them work better together. The idea of tying triggers from one device to actions on another is especially practical in the smart home, and even more so when you can use Google Home to control all those devices through IFTTT even if they don't have direct Assistant integration - yet.

With that said, IFTTT has just added support for 3 new products through new channels.

Leviton smart lighting devices now work with IFTTT

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

2017-Leviton-Decora-Smart-Wi-Fi-Products

Trying to assemble a network of smart home devices can be a challenge that leaves to juggling a myriad of different apps and protocols. IFTTT works behind the scenes to knit all these various products together into a (somewhat) cohesive whole. Of course, first your devices need to have support for IFTTT. You can add Leviton's smart lighting devices to the list today.

Leviton already supports Google Home and Alexa for voice control, but IFTTT adds another layer of automation.

IFTTT adds an Uber channel so you can automate and trigger things based on your rides

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

IFTTT keeps getting more powerful with time thanks to the addition of plenty of services that normally don't talk to each other but are made to do so thanks to its applets and automations. The latest to join the fold is popular — albeit recently very controversial — ride sharing service Uber.

The Uber channel on IFTTT isn't as capable as most others since it only provides Triggers and not Actions.

IFTTT updated with more than 30 new data sources, Google Photos support, and VoIP

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Late yesterday IFTTT saw a huge update. There are more than 30 new services tied to the automation tool via the new Data Access Project, including a ton of government and travel data sources. There is even a new Google Photos service that interfaces with the platform, as well as a VoIP feature for applets that use the phone service. Now you can set up IFTTT alerts on subjects like the economy and public transit, as well as upload images to Google Photos. 

The new VoIP service for phone applets will be helpful for those who are traveling internationally, as you'll be able to set those triggers and actions to occur over data.
