The popular automation service IFTTT has added support for Google’s cloud storage solution, Google Drive. The web automation platform, which stands for “if this then that”, uses “recipes” in order to automate tasks, and monitors a range of web services in order to action changes on others.

By connecting a Google Drive account, users can choose from more than a hundred recipes with actions such as saving all recorded Tweets to Drive, saving Instagram photos and recording a city’s rainfall in a spreadsheet. Currently there are no triggers for Google Drive, meaning only actions can be added, such as saving files or modifying documents.

Triggers can be added for IFTTT from plenty of other Google services however, including Gmail, Talk and Reader. Google Drive joins Box and Dropbox as the third cloud storage solution compatible with the service. If you’re thinking of using IFTTT with Google Drive then you can check out the full list of recipes and to start you off here are a selection of the best so far:

Let us know what you’ll be doing with the new functionality and how you use IFTTT in the comments, below!

    This is the first that I have heard of it, and it sounds like it could be cool in the future, but when I looked through the recipe list I was underwhelmed.

    Definitely saved for later reading. Reminds me of the Dropbox and scripts.
