IFTTT is now available on Android. IFTTT originally launched only on iOS several months ago, but now Android users can have the service on their devices.

For those unfamiliar, IFTTT (If This Then That) can automate your online presence for you. An example is if you take a photo on Instagram, you can get it automatically pushed to Flickr. Or if you leave a certain location, you can automatically send a text message to someone of your choosing.

These actions are called “recipes”, which you set up through “triggers” on certain services. IFTTT may look intimidating at first, but it’s very easy to manage and use your services.

Now that IFTTT is on Android, it’s a lot easier to manage and set up services on the go. The app is essentially the same as the iOS version, but the visuals have been altered to reflect an Android design.

The app is actually more limited on Android for now for some actions, but it should get more powerful through updates. Here are some actions IFTTT can perform right now:

  • Muting your ringtone
  • Setting your device’s volume
  • Updating the wallpaper
  • Sending a generic notification
  • Sending SMS messages.

So while you can’t fully replace apps like Tasker yet, you can still do very much with the current version of the app.

IFTTT will be available later today through this link, but at post time it’s not available yet. However, we’ll update this page when it goes live. You can also set up this IFTTT trigger to email you when it’s live.
