IFTTT is short for "If This Then That" and is the free way to do more with hundreds of the apps and devices you love, including Twitter, Dropbox, Evernote, Nest, Fitbit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.
- 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 and connections. These are specific things that can happen when you connect services — things your apps can't do on their own.
- For example, you could use IFTTT to sync Amazon Alexa to-dos with your Google Calendar. Or create events in your iPhone Calendar, via Google Assistant.
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 and connections can run when you tell them to, with a tap via widgets (That!).
- Applets and connections can have multiple actions (e.g. if this, then that...and that).
- And some Applets and connections 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 and connections that already exist, or you can make something custom for yourself.
