Microsoft Flow, a workflow management tool, has launched on Android. Flow debuted in April on the web and to iOS. It came about as an interface that lets users integrate two or more cloud services to create workflows such as alerts, data organization, messages, emails, and more.

Microsoft Flow is more focused on SharePoint, Office 365, Dynamics CRM, and other business tools and integrating those tools to other services such as Slack, Salesforce, GitHub, and others.

Some uses that were marketed were integrating twitter and automating tweets, getting a text message when you have received an email, copying files from SharePoint to OneDrive, integrating with Dropbox and Instagram, and more.

Users can start with many templates that are online. Once the app is booted it will take users to these templates.

This could help many power users connect to different services or manage data and create streamlined workflows.
