Which countries does Twilio have phone numbers in and what are their capabilities?

Twilio offers Voice and SMS enabled phone numbers globally. These phone numbers are either generally available (GA) or available for purchase through our Global Number Beta Program (Beta).

When we first launch new phone numbers they are offered through our Global Number Beta Program. Customers that have been accepted in the Global Number Beta Program will see these new numbers available for purchase in their Account Portal. Our beta phone numbers are from the same high quality providers as our generally available phone numbers. However, when we launch phone numbers in a new country, we put the numbers in Beta so that we can roll them out slowly to a smaller set of customers as we ramp up the traffic on those numbers.

Once the new phone numbers has received a substantial amount of traffic, we will release the numbers into our generally available inventory. These numbers are now available for purchase without being in the Global Number Beta Program. Generally this happens within three months of when the numbers are put into beta.

You can receive early access to any phone number in Beta, by signing up for our Global Number Beta Program.

The rest of the world…

Twilio is in the process of providing phone numbers in more countries as quickly as we can. Each country has different regulations regarding the purchase and sale of telephone numbers, so we are not able to provide a timeline on when numbers in a specific country will be available.

You can make outbound voice calls from any country in the world by validating the caller ID of a phone number you already own in that country.
