I'm just curious - how has IFTTT worked out a way with Google Home (and Assistant) to trigger actions without having to specifically call up the IFTTT service? It seems every other service has to be specifically called up, including Stringify.
So on Google Home for example:
With IFTTT, I can say, "OK Google, lights off," and Google Home simply responds "OK."
On Stringify however, my command has to be, "OK Google, Ask Stringify, lights off," and then Google Home not so simply responds, "Sure, here's Stringify, triggered the Lights Off flow."
It just seems unnecessarily clunky for Google Home to only require 3 words to fully complete an action using IFTTT, while using Stringify requires a minimum of 10 words. When wanting to trigger several consecutive flows, this can get pretty time consuming.
The worst part is, my IFTTT applets all trigger Stringify flows because Stringify is just so much more reliable...but because of the significant increase in simplicity using IFTTT with Google Home/Assistant, I just can't bring myself to remove IFTTT from the equation. It adds a slight time delay and more coding per action than is necessary, but it's still worth it for the simplicity.
So again, I'm just curious how has IFTTT worked out such a sweet deal that you don't have to specifically call upon their service to trigger an action AND you can custom program the response, such as "you got it, handsome" vs. "Sure, here's Stringify, triggered the flow."
