Stacey Higginbotham: What’s going to happen with IFTTT?

IFTTT has more than 700 services that users can connect to.

In the wake of Google saying last week that it would kill its Works with Nest program (a decision that has now been somewhat mitigated), I checked in with IFTTT, a company that suddenly seemed like its days were numbered.

I spoke with Linden Tibbets, IFTTT co-founder and chief design officer, about the company’s future, his recent decision to step down as CEO, and an unfortunate comment made by an executive at Google when it was announcing the end of its Works with Nest program. The core takeaway from our talk was that IFTTT is changing its strategy, and we should expect to learn more about that change by the end of the summer.
