Microsoft Unleashes on{X}, an Automation App for Android

Microsoft has recently unveiled a new automation app for the Android operating system called on{X}. The app would allow Android users to create automated tasks which their devices can perform, with the help of various scripts or “recipes”.

In the Bing blog, Microsoft gave some examples of where the app could be used in daily life.

  • “Wouldn’t you like to program your phone to automatically send a reply SMS with your current location as you’re driving when your wife texts you a “where?” message?
  • How about programming your phone to automatically show you today’s agenda as you step into the office?
  • Or show you the weather when you wake up in the morning?”

Users are first required to sign-up on the website with their Facebook account. Then they can download the app from Google Play and install it on their Android phone. The app requires an Android version of 2.3.3 and above.

There are some pre-built recipes available that users can use if they wish, or they can design their own. Currently there are 11 pre-built scripts in the on{X} app and Microsoft is working hard to include more of them in the near future.
