Along with our X1 core development team in Philadelphia, we’ve just launched IFTTT for X1.
If you’re not familiar, IFTTT (If This Then That) is a recipe-maker service that allows you to mix and add controls to the products and apps you already use and love.
And now, we’re launching a beta feature in partnership with IFTTT that lets people receive notifications on their television.
Starting today, X1 users can have Xfinity send them personalized alerts on their TV screen from Gmail, Jawbone, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Evernote and many more. That way, users can keep up with the things they care about, without missing a minute of their favorite programs.
