What is IFTTT?

IFTTT (If This Then That) is an online service that allows users to connect their devices to other electronics in their homes to program efficient actions. Simply put, IFTTT helps everything work together better, and that includes Sonic hearing aids. For example, a Sonic hearing aid user may program a Google Home or Alexa device to change a program in their hearing aids.

The possibilities are endless with IFTTT, and there are hundreds of combinations to try with any of your devices. Each action is called an “applet,” and engineers have already created these applets; just find the one you like and install it. Applets are designed for all ages and are free to install and use.



How to set up IFTTT

To get started, head over to IFTTT.com. Then here’s how it works:

  1. Create a free account.
  2. Browse the IFTTT website or app to find an applet that interests you.
  3. Connect the services that are involved in the applet or connection.
  4. Visit Sonic’s applet page at https://ifttt.com/sonic.
  5. Find more applets and connections, and then repeat!


Here are some of our favorites!

Google Assistant: Many people have used a smart assistant to help with daily tasks such as turning on lights remotely. Google is a search engine company that expanded its expertise to smart assistance. You can find Google Assistant in many smart devices, including smartphones, smart speakers, and smart TVs, to name a few. Use Google Assistant to set a different program on your Sonic hearing aids.

Amazon Alexa: You don’t need an Amazon Prime subscription to use Alexa, and you can find this smart assistant in anything from speakers to vehicles. Alexa is designed to simplify your life by offering shortcuts for your favorite tasks. Instead of pressing buttons to change a program, use your voice! Use Amazon Alexa to set a different program on your Sonic hearing aids.
