Microsoft's IFTTT- and Zapier-like process automation solution, Flow, is the company's own service for connecting primarily enterprise solutions like Office 365, Salesforce, and more. Flow first made its mobile appearance on iOS, and Microsoft hinted that an Android version was in the works as well. So far, there's been no mention of a version for the company's own Windows 10 Mobile.
Today, Twitter user WalkingCat, who's provided some nice early warning in the past of new Microsoft items, let us know that the Flow app for Android is now officially available as a preview without the need to sign up as a beta tester.
Heading over to the Google Play Store, we have this description of Flow for Android:
Currently available for public Beta, this easy-to-use business app tracks and manages the automated workflows you create between your web services, files, and cloud-based data, making it easy to:
· Instantaneously respond to critical notifications or emails
· Inform the whole team whenever a work item is updated
· Capture, track, and follow-up with new sales leads
