Microsoft recently launched the official iOS app for its Flow service. Now, it looks like the company has quietly started testing Flow for Android. If you are an Android user, you can now beta-test the company’s Flow app for Android. The app seems to be in its early stages, and it lacks some of the main features of the service. For example, you can’t even start a new Flow within the app, and you’ll have to use the web app to be able to start a new Flow. However, you can use the app to get notifications about your Flows, and keep track of all of the Flows right on your Android device. Additionally, you can also turn on/off a Flow, and review the logs of each Flows within the app.

For those who aren’t familiar with Flow, it’s a service similar to IFTTT which allows users to automate their workflow by connecting some of the popular services. For example, you can setup a Flow to get a notification on Slack whenever there’s a new issue for a repository on GitHub. You can also set it up to send you a notification for new GitHub issues, or add them to a Trello board.

If you are an Android user, you can sign up for the Microsoft Flow beta here, and download the app on your Android phone here.
