If This Then That is a handy online service that you may use to automate things on your computer or mobile devices.

The service calls these recipes applets, and they enable you to automate all kinds of things; examples include getting a weather report notification each day at 7 am, saving email attachments automatically to a cloud storage service, or tweeting your Instagrams as native photos on Twitter.

According to the IFTTT website, more than 400 services are supported by it at the time of writing.

We reviewed IFTTT back in 2011 when the service was released, and the IFTTT Android application in 2014 when it was published.

The most recent version of the IFTTT mobile application for Android and iOS introduces a new feature that international users will benefit the most from: VoIP Calls support.

The service supported phone call functionality before, but only for users from the US. Now with VoIP Calls support, all users may use the recipes that made use of phone call functionality. US users have both options at their disposal now, international users VoIP functionality only.

Voice over IP (VoIP) delivers phone call messages through the IFTTT app to your device. It’s available internationally and is an excellent alternative to the Phone Call service. All you need is the latest version of the IFTTT app.

IFTTT lists available recipes on the website, and in the service's mobile applications. Want some examples? Here you go:

  • Get a wake up call when it is time to wake up.
  • Get a phone call reminder when there's a birthday on your Google Calendar.
  • Get yourself out of an awkward situation.
  • Tell Alexa to call the device.
  • Get a Voice over IP call when important emails arrive in your Google Gmail inbox.

VoIP basically is just another means to receive notifications on IFTTT. Instead of receiving notification emails, app notifications, text messages or chat messages, you may now receive calls when you make use of the new VoIP Calls functionality.

The new version comes with additional improvements. It features new Gmail options, for instance using cc and bcc, drafting emails, or sending emails to yourself.

Other improvements include the addition of 30 new services that work with government and non-profit data, a new Google Photos service, and stability and speed improvements.

Android users can download the latest version from Android store, iOS users from iTunes.


The new VoIP Calls functionality improves IFTTT significantly for international users of the service, as it adds a new notification or contact option to the application.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!

    Keep up the great work, Instagram, and thanks to ghacks for keeping us in the loop with the latest tech updates!
