TwiML Quickstart: Hello Monkey

Play an mp3 for the Caller

That's nice, now let's play the sound of a nice monkey howl for the caller after we greet them by name.

    • quickstart/twiml/1.2/hello-monkey.php
      <?php
      
      	// make an associative array of callers we know, indexed by phone number
      	$people = array(
      		"+14158675309"=>"Curious George",
      		"+14158675310"=>"Boots",
      		"+14158675311"=>"Virgil",
      		"+14158675312"=>"Marcel"
      	);
      	
      	// if the caller is known, then greet them by name
      	// otherwise, consider them just another monkey
      	if(!$name = $people[$_REQUEST['From']])
      		$name = "Monkey";
      		
      	// now greet the caller
      	header("content-type: text/xml");
      	echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>\n";
      ?>
      <Response>
      	<Say>Hello <?php echo $name ?>.</Say>
      	<Play>http://demo.twilio.com/hellomonkey/monkey.mp3</Play>
      </Response>
          

    This example uses the <Play> verb to fetch and play an MP3 file to the caller.

    A recorded monkey howl is great, but our callers want more. Let's give them the option to talk to a real primate.
