Microsoft Launches Its Own Version Of IFTTT

Spread the love
Microsoft has just released CAP or Conditional Action Programmer which allows users to automate workflow, much like IFTTT (If This Then That).

CAP uses LUIS (Language Understanding Intelligent Service) to process voice commands more naturally. This gives it a significant leg up over IFTT. Microsoft explains how this would work by displaying sample tasks that the users can command, ranging from “When I enter an area post FB status message” to “When MSFT stock hits (expected value) send email”.

Apps and services like Date and time, Email, Facebook, RSS feeds, HTTP, Office 365, OneDrive for Business, Pocket, SMS, Stocks and Weather are supported. Since this is still new, customers can give feedback on which features they would like to see integrated with CAP. So the list surely won’t be limited to what’s mentioned above.

For now, CAP is only available on the web. Although the site mentions that there is an Android app, it doesn’t appear to be live yet. But we can expect the app to be made available on the Play Store fairly soon.

It’s important to note that Microsoft has already released FLOW on iOS devices, which can be considered a direct rival to IFTT. You can check out the Conditional Action Programmer from Microsoft’s site below.
