Microsoft’s IFTTT competitor now lets you integrate with Chatter, HipChat, Medium, and WordPress

Some templates available from Microsoft Flow.

Microsoft today said that its has added support for 13 more services in its Microsoft Flow service, which lets people use templates that automate processes across multiple apps, as well as building custom “flows.”

Flow now offers support for integrations with Salesforce’s Chatter service, the Disqus commenting system, the FreshDesk customer support tool, the Google Contacts contact management app, Citrix’s GoToMeeting video conferencing service, Atlassian’s HipChat team communication app, the Medium blogging platform, and the WordPress content management system, according to a blog post today from Microsoft technical evangelist Lee Stott.

In keeping with Microsoft’s strategy of ensuring that many of its own services are also supported on Flow, the tool also now supports three services from the Microsoft Azure public cloud — Azure Resource Manager, Azure Queues, and the DocumentDB NoSQL database — as well as the Cognitive Services Face application programming interface (API) and good old MSN Weather.

This follows a pattern of Microsoft extending the capability and appeal of Flow by enlarging the pool of compatible apps. Last month, Microsoft added support for Bitly, DocuSign, OneNote (for business accounts), and SurveyMonkey in Flow. And in November, Flow got support for Asana, Basecamp, EasyRedmine, JIRA, Redmine, and Vimeo.

Flow, which is available on Android, iOS, and the web for customers of Dynamics 365 and Office 365 Enterprise, Business Premium, and Essentials users, competes with privately held IFTTT and Zapier, among others.

Microsoft launched Flow out of preview in October after introducing it in April.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
