BOCCO now works with IFTTT, a free web-based service that helps your apps and devices work together, without any programming required. As a result, BOCCO can now be linked with various services such as email, calendar, location, etc…
For those who were using Yahoo! myThings until now, IFTTT can be considered as an alternative solution. With IFTTT, you can ask BOCCO to speak automatically when triggered by the input of another application. The team is currently working on future developments to enable actions triggered by BOCCO input. Please keep an eye on our website to stay tuned.
・ Mail (Gmail, Office365 Mail, etc.)
・ Calendar / ToDo management (Google Calendar, Office365 Calendar, iOS Calendar, etc.)
・ Social Media / blog (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, RSS, etc.)
・ Voice device / IoT (Google assistant, MESH, smart home, etc.)
First, register with IFTTT. You can create an IFTTT account for free simply by entering your email address and password on the IFTTT page. You can also sign in with a Google account or Facebook account.
An Applet connects two or more apps or devices together.You can use Applets already created on IFTTT, or you can create Applets yourself.
To get started, first navigate “Discover” menu, then tap a magnifying glass icon to search for “BOCCO”. There, you’d find several Applets working with BOCCO.
There, you can turn on existing Applets or you can create your own Applet from scratch. For the first time, you need to connect IFTTT to your BOCCO by entering your BOCCO account details.
