If This Then That, or IFTTT, is a web-based service that offers users the ability to automate digital activities by connecting services and apps.

Update – In response to queries regarding the technicalities of the post, we’d like to clarify what we’ve released here. We provided build instructions based on the AOSP project under the branch android-m-preview, showing the Android M platform changes so far. That build gives an early preview of Android M for custom ROM developers to play with. Be aware that at this point the API levels are still at Lollipop MR1, what we show is Android M Developer Preview purely from a platform perspective.
Note that the Android M Developer Preview for Nexus devices from Google supports the latest API level. Xperia devices flashed using the build instructions linked from this post, do not support those APIs.

To ensure that that we offer the demanded level of security on devices and in data transmission has been a key priority for our software team.
