With Circle Connections, you can connect your favorite apps and services to bring new features to your Circle. Right now you're able to connect your favorite chore management apps, smart assistant, and automation service. Very soon activity trackers, social media monitoring services, and other services to Circle.
You can check out Circle Connections by opening the Circle app, and then a family member’s profile. At the bottom of the profile you will see a section for Circle Connections. Tap on this "Connections" tab to see what is offered.
Some services are still coming soon, but here's what is currently available.
Chores & FamilyTech: Mothershp, Landra, and Choremonster
We've partnered with the folks at FamilyTech to support integration with their family of chore management apps, which include Mothershp, Choremonster and Landra. These are a set of web and mobile apps that make chores fun for kids and easy for parents. Your kids can now earn rewards in Circle by doing their chores. Best of all, it’s all automatic once you’ve set up the connection. Johnny wants to stay up a little longer on his connected device? Great! He just needs to make sure his room is clean and let you know through the Choremonster app! Jill wants some more screentime online? Alright, but she needs to brush her teeth and get ready for bed first!

IFTTT: Customize Your Circle's Behavior
IFTTT (If This Then That) allows various services to connect with a wide range of other services and applications, by meeting custom-defined triggers. We're proud to add ourselves to this ever-growing list of services! Now Circle can react when something occurs in one of your other favorite apps. You can make IFTTT applets that, when triggered, make Circle perform an "action" (like Pausing the Internet). See IFTTT's about page for further details on how this all works, and visit our support article here for instructions setting it up!
