Microsoft Flow, the company's answer to IFTTT, has landed on Android. The service debuted on the desktop back in April and was quickly ported to iOS devices. Flow works much the same way as IFTTT but focuses more heavily on integrating Microsoft's own products like Office 365 with other enterprise tools like Mailchimp and Salesforce. So if you want to get a text alert when you receive an important email or automatically post every tweet containing a specific hashtag to a specific Slack channel, you totally can.
