There’s a huge gap between the promise and reality of bots. Bots tend to get stuck in loops and fail to achieve the task at hand. If they do manage to break out of the loop and handoff to agents, they often lose the context of data collected to that point.
Today, developers have to choose between software-as-a-service bot builders focused on particular use cases with limited customizability or, natural language understanding services that are essential but not sufficient to build a complete conversational flow.
Today, we're announcing Twilio Autopilot — a conversational AI platform to build intelligent bots, IVRs, and Alexa apps that work.
Twilio Autopilot is made up of three building blocks:
- A Natural Language Understanding engine that analyzes user intent.
- A Conversational Application Platform to ...

Remember the days before ridesharing apps? If you needed to go to the airport, you would call a taxicab company and speak with a dispatch agent. Today, there’s no need to call a dispatcher to order a cab, then call again to get ETA updates, or give directions—all of this communication is done using the app. What a concept! Now that we’ve experienced this luxury, it’s hard to go back to life before it.
However, this experience wasn’t built overnight. Companies had to figure out ways to solve a few challenges. For example:
- How do you make a phone call between two ...
Announcing Passthrough API: Send 10k SMS messages with a single API request
- Bulk SMS through a single API request.
- Make marketing announcements, send emergency response notifications.
- Available in beta.
In the past, if developers needed to notify many users, they’d have to do so by making a unique API request per recipient from their list of user addresses. If this list was too long, making API requests would consume too much time.
Now, businesses can send bulk SMS notifications with a single API request via Twilio Notify. What’s even better is that it can be used not just for SMS, but for all the other channels supported by Notify like iOS and Android push notifications, web push via FCM and APNS, and Facebook Messenger. You can even mix multiple channels in a single request.
