Microsoft has come up with a new web tool Flow that automates action across some of the major web services available at the moment, most of them are not owned by Microsoft. Flow lets users to setup automated “recipes” to complete tasks on twitter, Dropbox, Google Drive, slack, Github, Onedrive, Facebook, YouTube and more.
“A flow connects your web services, files, and cloud-based data to save time and effort for everyone, every day!”, says the official website.
The Service is currently available in “Preview” mode (read: beta), but there is no restriction to entry for the web version. Just head to the web page and enter a Microsoft account, and you’re ready to go. There’s an android app as well, which is also in beta and is using the Playstore’s testing system .The app will be soon available for android but for now it’s available for download on iOS.
The Android version of flow is more of a manager than full version of web tool: users can guide flow recipes and get notifications for when they run or fail, plus turn them on or off. You cannot create a new Flow recipe or delete an existing one in the mobile app. Check it out if you are interested in automated tool that integrates well with Microsoft Office.
