- On IFTTT, we call those services. To see all of the services on IFTTT, check out our services list.
We bring services together into Applets. Applets are specific things that can happen when you connect services — things your apps can't do on their own.
- For example, you could use an Applet to sync Amazon Alexa to-dos with your Google Calendar. Or one that lets you create events in your iPhone Calendar, via Google Assistant.
Here's a short video tutorial that shows you how to connect your apps and devices, and turn on Applets.
Our name is pronounced like "Gift" without the "G." We used to be called "if this, then that" because Applets would have one trigger, and one action. If this happens — then that happens.
- For example, when you come home, then turn on your Hue lights.
Now we just go by "IFTTT," because there's so much more you can do:
- Applets can run when you tell them to, with a tap via widgets (That!).
- Applets can have multiple actions (e.g. if this, then that...and that).
- And some Applets even have filters that mean they only run when a specific condition is met (e.g. if this and that, then that).
You can turn on Applets that already exist, or you can make something custom for yourself. Here's two short tutorials that show you how easy it is.
