I am the co-founder of Plivo.
Back in the summer of 2012 while we graduated out of Ycombinator, we released APIs for developers to integrate SMS and Voice in their apps. Over the last 7 years that has helped us grow to 70,000 customers.
The abstraction of complex telecom infra via APIs in 2012 was a game changer in many ways. It gave web and mobile developers the ability to add powerful functionality in a few days.
Today we are really excited to announce the Public Beta of PHLO (Plivo High Level Objects) - A whole new visual way of integrating Voice and SMS in minutes. With PHLO you get:
- Pre-built use case templates with the option to add custom code
- 100% functional parity with Plivo API & XML
- Serverless architecture hosted on Plivo infrastructure
- Offered for free, regardless of scale
Here's a quick concept video we made:
Would love to get thoughts from the community.
