Microsoft Finally Brings Flow to Windows Handsets

The company’s app automation platform is now available to Windows phone users in beta. Flow has previously been available on iOS and Android since launching last year.


has today announced that its Flow automation platform is now available to users. At the moment, the service is in beta for testing. Once the testing phase is over, the app will be available to all users.

The expansion of Flow comes after it debuted last year. At the time of announcement, the app was only available on iOS devices. A month later the company brought it to public beta on Android. Flow left preview and was fully launched in October.

As is often the case with mobile these days, Microsoft left its own Windows phone platform until last. At least now users can get their hands on the app automation tool in testing. Adi Regev, Principal Project Manager for Flow Mobile, says the app is open for people who want to test it:

“If you wish to participate in our Beta program,” Regev said, “please send your request to [email protected].”

If you are unfamiliar with Flow, it is a service that allows users to create automated workflows across applications. It can be described as an enterprise-oriented IFTTT competitor. By creating automated chains, users can get data collection, file synchronization, and notifications.

Flow Evolution

For example, the platform can automate notifications for other services, such as Slack chat. The service can be used to set up to send notifications to services such as Trello and other non-Microsoft software. Of course, the company's own software, like OneDrive, also work:

Microsoft Flow makes it easy to mash-up two or more different services. Today, it is publicly available as a preview, at no cost. We have connections to 35+ different services, including both Microsoft services like OneDrive and SharePoint, and public software services like Slack, Twitter, and Salesforce.com, with more being added every week.

Since launching the platform last year, Microsoft has been busy with numerous update. Check out all our Flow news, but among the integrations are SharePoint, Gmail, and Power BI.

Dev-tip of the day: We recommend the cloud-based automation testing service from Lambdatest for websites, web applications, and mobile apps. Thanks to their use of more than 3,000 real browsers and it´s one of the fastest scalable solutions out there.
