Microsoft Flow Out of Beta, Ready to Challenge IFTTT Automation

Android / iOS / Internet: Microsoft’s competitor IFTTT Flow has been in beta for most of 2016, but not fully ready yet . Now the company is ready to present it to the world, and it starts to look good.

When we compared Flow versus IFTTT and Zapier earlier this year, we noted that it had no Android app (which came out after a couple of months ) and had fewer triggers. Flow now has apps for both major mobile platforms and the services are more robust. You can receive notifications when one of your streams starts. Microsoft also introduced “dynamic content,” which, aside from the boring name, means you can create more complex streams based on the triggers you get.

Flow also no longer requires users to have an email address for education or work. Anyone can register. However, Flow now has new pricing plans as well . Users or businesses will have to pay $ 5 per user per month for 4,500 runs per month and a 3-minute checkout window, or $ 15 per user per month for 15,000 runs per month and a 1-minute checkout window. Free users can run their streams up to 750 times a month, but they will only check every 15 minutes, which can be a little difficult if you need flexible automation.
