Twilio: Chat for Mobile and Web Apps

Cloud communication platform Twilio has introduced several new products and capabilities.

Following the introduction of Twilio Video in April, the company introduced Twilio IP Messaging, which provides the capability to embed advanced chat functionality into mobile and Web applications.The service supports message synchronization so that users can instantly access chat history and engage in conversations from different devices. Advanced messaging features such as typing indicator, message read status, topic search and mobile push notifications enable developers to easily add comprehensive chat functionality to any application.

"Nearly 700,000 developers and businesses have built on the Twilio platform and we're adding over 1,000 new developers every day because we made it easy to integrate voice and messaging into mobile, Web and enterprise applications," said Jeff Lawson, CEO of Twilio. "Now, we're bringing that same formula, along with a revolutionary pricing model to the Twilio RTC Suite. Customers can build at cloud-scale and realize significant cost savings versus existing per user and per minute models. We're building the infrastructure for the future of communications and we can't wait to see what our customers build next."
