“The "magical" DIY (Do It Yourself) communication system”

OverallAfter 2 years using Twilio services, mainly phone and messages, I can say I am so happy I found this solution to handle my communications. It is so flexible, Although it has been a little bit complicated sometimes to self-learn about online phoning systems it saved me from a lot of hassles I wanted to avoid. The best benefit you get is the ultra efficient support service
ProsWith Twilio you can start from scratch to build your own online communication system. I didn't know so much about VOIP before and it is true I had to learn a few things. So far I have been able to use my Twilio french mobile number fully online even whenI need to travel abroad - with all mobile services you can expect (voice, SMS, MMS). The pricing is light and the global user interface makes the whole systme pretty easy to manage. I only use a few features from the platform but the possibilities are huge ! And they are always working on new services. And as Twilio is now really recognized as a communication company you can find additional software apps very easily and even documentation, I am thinking of the softphone app I am using on my mobile or desktop for instance.
ConsI could customize a personal solution because I had time to test different options and as a developer I could code stuffs if needed. I am not sure everybody can do the same without technical skills.

“Great for Triggered Text Message Notifications”

OverallOverall, very happy. Great value for the money. Would highly recommend.
ProsWe've been using this system to send text notifications to a distribution list when someone visits our website and completes a form to request information. We typically receive emails from clients who send 3-5 similar, if not identical emails to multiple tour operators. By dramatically decreasing our time to contact the potential client and answer questions via email or over the phone, we saw a marked increase in booking conversions. Using the Zapier integration between our Website form tool "Gravity Forms" and Twilio, we now can respond to online inquiries a matter of minutes, and secure a booking before our competitors can even open their email.
ConsIn the Zapier setup, it is a bit of hit and miss to get all the custom text to layout like you want in a single text message.

“One of the best platforms for call/text integration”

OverallI have led teams that integrate Twilio as a text notification service for various events from medication adherence to support ticket alerts.
ProsTwilio provides a very straightforward interface to programmatically integration calls and texts in to software applications. Configuration and set up is super easy, and Twilio provides a variety of options for regions and countries to set up your phone numbers for. They provide a number of SDKs in popular programming languages, making integration super easy.
ConsThe price point for calls and texts are a bit on the high side. Some of the more complex configurations might be a bit hard to set up, although their documentation IS quite thorough.

“Always on the Go with Twilio!”

ProsCompetitive rates in the market is being offered. We use this in the company as the main tool for SMS messaging platform tool for our devices so it's cheaper compared to the rates we would be paying if we are to use the services offered by regular major carriers. It also allows use via API so very convenient and easy to set up in the backend for operational use with different platforms.
ConsLately, there's an issue when viewing/searching for SMS transaction logs. When you search for the logs using phone number as a search tool, sometimes the results will not show up. I think it's a bug. Also when the sub menus were changed from the previous version, it got confusing. Navigating the menus on the site got more complicated compared to before.

“Awesome tool for sending sms and voice calling”

ProsTwilio enables the users on any platform to send sms and make voice calls internationally via its well documented APIs which can be integrated very quickly on the platform by the developers. The SMS can be sent reliably on any international or local phone number once the phone numbers are bought with the required services enabled on it. Twilio also provides phone number masking for making voice calls. All in all its really an awesome module to use in your product for availing all of the Twilio services.
ConsTwilio should provide sms and voice calling as a testing feature on the trial account which can really help people to be more convinced about its awesome services.

“Easy to integrate with any platform”

OverallI was able to create a driver with LUA, and integrate SMS feature to Control4 Home Smart System. I wanted to receive messages every time certain events occurred, and Twilio is really accurate and helpful. I had to minimize the amount of messages so I could spend less money per month.
Pros- It has an API Rest and a 5 minutes to implement rule, which is quite true. - They have a quick start for many platforms / languages. - SMS Feature was exactly what I needed, fast send/receive messages. - Besides having excellent docs, they have something called TwilioQuest, which I found really funny and entertaining.
Cons- Price per SMS seems to be high, at least in my country. I guess it depends on what are you building, and the value you give to this feature.

“Powerful yet complex”

OverallI was able to create a call center script using this service and it worked great. Customer support sucks. If I were to rate Customer Support: 2 stars. Documentation: 5
ProsYou can create almost anything with their voice prompts. Both inbound and outbound calls. From IVR to automated calls. You can host your scripts on their platform or your own server using the REST API.
ConsDocumentation is all over the place. There are two main ways to send commands. Twiml or API (your language like PHP or C#) but the documentation jumps back and forth. One step of a tutorial is in Twiml. Then the next thing you want to do is not. It uses the API. And trying to find the same documentation in the other language is hit or miss.

“Twilio Platform = Solid”

ProsEven though I am not a developer, even I can get Twilio services working. I have helped a few local businesses in my area drop the traditional POTS lines and migrate over to Twilio and have heard nothing but great reviews. That platform has even given me the push to sign up for a couple dev classes to get even more out of it.
ConsSome of the documentation can be extremely vague. I understand that it is made for developers/programmers but there is a big portion of potential users that would love to use some of the features, but just don't have the coding background/knowledge to make it come alive.

“Extremely easy to set up and get going!”

OverallThe software was able to solve for a business requirement. Price point was reasonable. Performance is very good.
ProsAs a lead architect, I am always on the look out for stable, easy to integrate tools and services for our various Enterprise solutions. With Twilio, I was able to get a fully functioning Enterprise level SMS Notification Microservice up and running in under an hour. The ease of integration, it's simple API and documentation is what any developer would be happy with. The price point is also very reasonable and I would highly recommend this solution to anyone who is looking to evaluate or use this service.

“Plivo is GREAT BUT”

OverallIt was awesome. If you can live with the price and knowing that competitors are almost half it really could be worth it to pay extra since they have a proven and battle-tested platform. Denied SMS sends are a pretty big deal and it's really easy to get caught in spam filtering etc on other providers. However I think I would recommend checking there first to see if your group of users can use the less expensive option without getting any dropped/missed/filtered SMS sends.
ProsI liked that it worked great for my needs (Api driven SMS) and that I hardly had to manage anything to get it working and it worked for nearly any phone number I or my customers wanted to text.
ConsThe price. Some competitors are half the price, however it's a tradeoff in that you will get more failed SMS sends.

“Reasonably-Priced Programmatic SMS and Voice”

OverallTwilio was one of the earliest players in the programmatic telecommunications services industry, and they have their basic services down to an art. Everything is well-documented, and their APIs in the various programming languages they support are easy to understand and very stable. They offer a free trial of most of their services, and getting started doesn't cost a lot, but once you start using the services heavily, it can increase in cost rapidly if you do not properly plan for the amount of traffic involved. There are other services that do specific individual services better, but if you're looking for an all-around balanced programmatic telecommunications platform, Twilio is probably the best to start with.
ProsEasy to set up, extensible, supports a variety of programming languages and interfaces, pricing is easy to understand, excellent free trial that allows for testing of most features
ConsPricing can jump quickly with advanced usage, still a bit basic in some of its interfaces

“Absolute must ”

OverallWe have incredibly high SLAs and Twillio has contributed to us hitting them.
ProsWe make us of Twillio for sending sms messages escalating incidents based on Zendesk triggers. It's super easy to configure and connect to Zendesk. Pricing is also great.
ConsThe only con we have found is ideally we would want to have the sms come from a specific number every time but this is not possible. After speaking with Twillio support this has more to do with the country specific provider than Twillio.

“Great telephone / text software that can integrate into multiple sites easily.”

ProsAbility to acquire phone numbers quickly, set up with API access, and get up and running within a very short time frame. Pricing is very competitive in the market, and tracking is made easy within their platform.
ConsSending only one text per second on their base package is a bit limiting, but cost effective enough to make it worthwhile. They do allow businesses to be a "reseller" of their product, which allows companies to charge a client 4x what a twilio customer would pay.

“Perfect tool for building your own in app communication system”

OverallIt was definitely great!
ProsWe built our inapp communication system which is extensively used by our clients to reach out to their clients through sms, text messages and calls via our app. As a developer I loved the light weight apis twilio provides along with amazing sets of documentations, that building all the features with twilio were smooth. They provide amazing options to track all the events throughout the process with events and callbacks, making the debugging process really easy.
ConsThey do not have much of documentations for the emerging language Golang :(

“Such an amazing and flexible platform”

OverallIt has been amazing journey to use Twilio very few minor hurdles.
ProsTwilio has almost all offerings towards communication platform. You could build your automation without writing a single line of code. i.e. Using their Studio product. Also, you they have small modular functions that you can write to add any other needs that you might want. This is solid cloud offering with most use cases covered in communication. They also have integration with Whatsapp and they have roadmap to add Wechat integration. 
ConsThere are very few cons with Twilio products. And they are very minor. For eg. They won't let you use pay through your companies standard pay process unless your volume exceeds certain threshold. Until then you will need to use your cards.

“Seriously powerful SMS text messaging features from your own web systems”

OverallIf you build custom web systems like we do, you need a good tool to interface with cellphones. Twilio gives you a system and API that can be configured to do just about anything you could need.
ProsThe API is really powerful and relatively easy (as far as APIs are concerned) to use. It's not too hard to use and can be configured to do just about anything you could want. It's cost effective. It's very reliable.
ConsI seriously can't think of anything wrong with it.

“Dial Twilio to add telephony to your application”

OverallWe used Twilio as part of our SaaS enterprise business application to do voice signature/ gather consent via an automated call, do short polling via voice and get consent via text message.
ProsTwilio makes adding telephone based interactions - call/ SMS etc... to an application dead simple. No hardware or software to install - just APIs and you pay for what you use and nothing more.
ConsAt times documentation has not been found to keep pace with the functionality. That is just a minor irritant.

“I use this platform daily to monitor SMS messaging.”

OverallFrom SMS recordings, to phone recordings, this tool is a must.
ProsThe platform is easy to pinpoint a message and why it was sent. The fact that the message is presented is an added plus, as other platforms for say email recording do not present such detail. Also, their support is superior.
ConsThe biggest pain-point is that the messages are in UTC time, and while that feature is understandable, it does create a few seconds of additional work in conversion.

“In simple terms, the most complete option”

ProsI use Twilio in my online marketplace to notify users via SMS about actions that happen in the marketplace and when they have a sale or a customer sends an inquiry about one of their products. This makes my company and its services more professional and eases the life of the sellers. Before I forget, customers also get SMS notifications when they buy and receive an answer from sellers. Twilio is cheap and its documentation is extensive and to the detail. One of my best choices, Twilio.
ConsInternational (i live in usa) sms can be cheaper.

ProsExcellent API Set, outgoing and incoming Messages with SMS and WhatsApp. We used Twilio to quickly add a Messaging component to our base application. Very inexpensive

“Great call recording features for quality assurance”

OverallWe were able to monitor phone calls to improve customer service and employee training
ProsWe use the call recording component of Twilio to record inbound customer service, sales, and support calls. We had the recording integrated with our website via the specialty phone numbers that we put on site. This gave us tremendous insight into our customer experience process. I can't speak to the implementation part since it was handled by our website provider, but using it was very simple.
ConsSince we utilized the client side integration, I can't speak much to the native Twilio functionality. Everything that came through on our end was great. I think I would have preferred the native Twilio features, however, to have more flexibility with how we manage our calls.

ProsWeb based API - nothing complicated here - it was straight forward and easy to use. I could start with basic features and add more later on.
ConsNothing negative comes to mind. Some of my customers (healthcare industry) were adverse to using twillio and I think they tried to get a BAA in place and were not able to.

“Perfect for sending out customer reminders”

ProsWe used Twilio to send out reminders for customers appointments in a men's beauty clinic. It integrates well with WordPress and WooCommerce.
ConsNot many points to critique, works relatively smoothly and with no problems once setup. Sending test SMS to multiple phone numbers should be possible for free.

“Twilio Took My Chat Bots to a Whole New Level.”

OverallTwilio allows me to initiate chat bots from SMS messages.
ProsWhat I like most about Twilio is that it allows me to initiate a chat bot from an SMS message. This is particularly handy in recruiting applications where I want people to be able to text "jobs" to a certain number and immediately engage with a chat bot to gather information. I can have the bot collect contact information and then redirect the applicant to a webpage where he or she can complete an application. I call also collect the contact information and then notify someone in HR to call the applicant right away. This kind of fast response dramatically increases my clients' hire rates.
ConsWhat I like least about this feature is that its a little awkward to use. If you don't have knowledge about Authorization Tokens and back-end website stuff, this may take a little learning. Also, I appreciate their dedication to security, but forcing me to use a 14-character password is a hassle.

“Effective integrations at a low cost”

OverallGreatly expanded our ability to communicate with our customers.
ProsWe use Twilio to integrate text messaging with our CRM. The interface is easy to navigate and setup was a cinch. Unbelievably broad product offering, we plan to incorporate the faxing component as well.
ConsEncountered some unusual logging issues early on, but I think that was more on our programming than Twilio. Otherwise, I'm hard pressed to come up with a "con".

“Cutting Edge and AWESOME”

ProsThe team at Twilio is putting together world class architecture on new innovative tools every day. We are leveraging it to strengthen our position in the healthcare world designing innovative apps.
ConsSome of the documentation is lacking and the descriptions are somewhat nebulous. SMS messaging context seems to be more from their point of view, instead of the user or company using it, which makes diagnosing issues extremely confusing.

ProsMy company is able to send mass informational texts to our customers without a hitch.
ConsWhen there is a hitch or we hit our limit, we are rarely notified. It takes 48 hours to increase your quantity of texts. You're killing me, smalls!

“Fantastic platform with easy SDKs”

ProsThe simple SDKs already built out for almost any language, and ability to build almost anything you want/need!
ConsIt's a little intimidating at first. Lots of setup behind the scenes. However, once it's set up, it's a very solid product!

“The platform for SMS and Calls”

OverallIn general terms, Twilio is a great tool to integrate SMS with your application, I feel like the big ones such are Twitter, Instagram or any other platform that send SMS with confirmation codes and Twilio make it possible.
ProsIs very useful to interact with your clients or users
ConsI had some errors/warnings on my debug console but I don't have idea where they come from, would be great if they could give me more information about it

“Outbound calls”

ProsWe use Twilio for outbound calls and it has been amazing. We are able to set a price limit on outbound calls so our sales guys aren't racking up a huge bill by calling high priced per minute countries. They are also great at flagging/blocking suspecious calls.
ConsI really can't think of anything. Everything I have experieced with Twilio has been positive and I like it.

“Twilio: Not easy to use, but I'm not a programmer!”

OverallOverall, I'm glad I use Twilio for text reminders. "No shows" caused empty slots on my calendar that could have been used by paying customers. I was losing money. With the text reminders, the "no shows" are almost nonexistent and I can now focus on other aspects of my business.
ProsBefore I started using Twilio, my customers were receiving email reminders about their upcoming appointments. More often than not, they didn't show up. Twilio syncs with my appointment calendar and sends reminders via text. Now the "no shows" are a very rare occurrence!
ConsIt was very hard to set up. I did figure it out, but it took me a little while. Admittedly, I'm not a programmer and have never tried to do anything like this on my own before. For others, this could be incredibly easy. I have a phone number that my reminder texts are sent from. This number has programmable voice capability, but the difficulty level (for me) has prevented me from trying to set it up.

“Use to send texts to on-site guests”

ProsTwilio is easy to implement and is used to send website login info to guests who are onsite.
ConsThe prices can at times be a con. Using long-codes and toll-free numbers are affordable. Unfortunately short codes are very pricy.

“I simply love Twilio”

OverallWe use it to send SMS and automated voice calls to our clients and members.
ProsTwilio is an industry leading solution for sending automated SMS, voice calls, and more. The UX is fantastic, the support docs are super clear (Say my developers) and the price is reasonable.
ConsI haven't run into any shortcomings with Twilio yet. Perhaps the prices for a custom short code phone number could be more affordable?

“The standard for online messaging services”

OverallWe use Twilio to integrate with our Church Management System to provide better communication with our members. The Twilio integration was built by the ChMS company using the SMS API and it works well. I've also used their voice API and their authentication app, which are very good. They have very competitive prices and solid service. They also offer discounts for qualified non-profits.
ProsNon-profit pricing Lots of integrations Easy to sign up Easy to set up

“Great product for setting up SIP phone”

OverallI need to put a SIP client on a mobile device for overseas travel to be able to make cheap domestic US calls over wireless and this product allow that to happen quite nicely.
ProsI like being able to program an extension/DID and hooking up to a SIP client to use with programmable voice and make cheap calls, it's really a great feature using the pay as you go model.
ConsIt takes a little skill to setup, it's not inherently intuitive how to make the service work without doing some research and/or reading some guides.
