What is IFTTT?
IFTTT or If This Then That is an awesome platform, that connects various services, apps and software together which allows us to do various task and automate them efficiently in a user friendly manner.
As mentioned earlier, in the tutorial we published last week, we explained everything about IFTTT and its working. If you would like to know more about that, click on the below link.
What are we going to do with this? We will create an applet that will send a test mail to your mail id, when you tell Google Assistant to send a test mail.
