BMW Labs discontinuing IFTTT service (August 2019)

I’m getting a feeling that the integration craze is over, that manufacturers are no longer interested in supporting it

Not much info. They just say it was a Pilot and it’s being discontinued. :disappointed_relieved:

Typical “pull the plug” cloud service terms and conditions(SmartThings has a very similar one, btw)

Changes to the Website and the BMW Labs Services

Makes sense. IFTTT integration cost money - partner fees, internal development cost, etc. If only tiny percentage of their customers use it and there’s no return on investment, why bother?
