Latest news about Cloud VoIP and SMS Platforms
2018. Twilio adds support for LINE
Communications API platform Twilio announced that it has added support for messenger LINE. With this, Twilio developers now have the ability to reach users on this service. The LINE support also extends to Twilio Studio, the company’s drag-and-drop app builder, and Flex, Twilio’s recently announced contact center solution. Twilio allows sending and receiving messages and supports many of the most popular messaging platforms, ranging from Facebook Messenger and Slack to WeChat, Kik and the new RCS text messaging standard. Missing from this list are the likes of WhatsApp and SnapChat, though they don’t have APIs that Twilio could easily integrate.
2016. VoIP platform provider Twilio launches add-on marketplace
Twilio announced the launch of its add-ons marketplace. Using these add-ons, developers who use Twilio’s API to power the messaging features of their apps and services can easily combine Twilio’s services with those of its partners. Twilio will handle the billing for its partners and developers can access their services with a single API call. For now, Twilio is working with 18 partners, including the likes of IBM Watson, NextCaller, WhitePages Pro, Mobile Commons and Payfone. These add-ons are available for Twilio’s Programmable SMS, Programmable Voice and Twilio Lookup services.
2015. Communications platform Twilio raised $130M
Twilio, the developer-centric communications platform, has raised a $130 million Series E round. Twilio says the new round will allow it to accelerate its global expansion plans and expands its efforts to get into the enterprise. The company also says that it will likely use the new funding to ” execute on strategic opportunities such as the company’s recent acquisition of Authy.” Twilio’s innovative cloud communications platform is changing the way businesses communicate with their customers and Salesforce Ventures is excited to help Twilio continue to accelerate their growth. With this round, the company is also clearly setting itself up for an IPO. In total, Twilio has now raised $233.7 $240 million and while it’s not talking about its valuation, it’s an easy guess that we are now talking about more than $1 billion.
