The main question: Can I answer text messages that were forwarded to me / initiate a call back from that number?
What about advance routing? Based on time or external sources? Numbers blocking, etc.?
Feedback on setup:
- It was super confusing to connect Twilio account that I already had.
- Signing up with Gmail only made me think for a second.
- Twilio connector only worked on a third try.
- I doubt that I would pay $6/mo for it when the time comes :-( Maybe a couple of bux, but not 6. (I don't want to discourage you here, just trying to be honest and give unfiltered feedback as a user, who is very interested.)
I hope you guys succeed, this would be great!
P.S. Awesome name for such a product!
Two-way messaging and call proxying is likely the next big features we'll be rolling out.
We went with the Twilio Connect route initially as a low-risk approach to see if there's an appetite for a something like this. Sadly it has not been a great user experience and we're definitely going to reconsider it (Twilio Connect).
As you might have guessed, we haven't actually decided on pricing yet but I wanted to put something on that page so that people can get a feel for how much it would cost them.
And yeah, the system we were using for auth (Cognito) did not at that time have an adequate 2FA solution, which was why we went with Google. Now that they do, we'll likely use that which would allow people to also signup with a username/password (in addition to Google, etc).
However, it doesn't seem to be a primary concern for them as it does take a significant amount of time for those updates to come to fruition.
I'm running Chromium 64 on Linux.
If you would still like to give it another shot I would appreciate it :)
I think it might be because you have third-party cookies disabled , and the Google Auth client uses an iframe with cookies to do its thing. I replicated it myself by disabling third-party cookies and the results were similar to what you described.
I'll look into what I can do about this on my end tomorrow. Thank you again for your time!
As a consumer, it will probably be hard to scale this. But you can always add an option.
Smart move for the product introduction to a niche audience!
