How can we improve Trakt.tv?

IFTTT playback status and scrobble triggers

I would really like to IFTTT triggers such as:

- Movie playback started
- Movie playback paused
- Movie playback resumed
- Movie playback finished
- Movie scrobbled
- TV ep playback started
- TV ep playback paused
- TV ep playback resumed
- TV ep playback finished
- TV ep scrobbled

These could be used for all sorts of things such as triggering Hue lights to dim/turn off/turn on etc. during movie playback. Or adding the name of movies I watched together with the date I watched them to a Google spreadsheet.

Any chance this might happen?

I know there are RSS feeds but they do not work very well and don't provide these features.

    I love the idea, but its going to take IFTTT wanting to do a deeper integration with Trakt. I’ve reached out a few times before, but maybe if users also message them it will get more traction.

        I've added a suggestion to add Trakt.tv on IFTTT. this is what I put in the suggestion:
        "If I could use google assistant to apply ratings to movies and shows in trakt. Or apply comments to shows from my couch. Or add movies to my collection. Or add a movie to my watched list and rate it as soon as I exit the theatre. Or add a movie to my watchlist automatically when there is an article written about it on one of my favourite news apps. Or dim the lights when I start watching a show. Or change the lighting to a certain colour depending on the type of show I am watching. The possibilities are endless."

        IFTTT would be sick!

        Use case

        If Google Assistant : " Hey google add $ to trakt collection"

        Could you not implement this easily via the Maker channel? Like just have us create a specific Maker recipe, put the secret key into a field on Trakt, and then Trakt could just trigger IFTTT via the existing maker channel.
