How does Ooma connect with Google?

“If This Then That,” or IFTTT, is a service that allows its users to link Internet-compatible services such as Ooma and Google together so that they can interact with each other. Using IFTTT, you can set up simple automation tasks called “Recipes” so that an action from one service automatically triggers an event on another. You can learn more about setting up an IFTTT account to work with Ooma by visiting our FAQ.
