Install past versions of twilio-cli

In some rare situations, you may need to make use of an older version of twilio-cli. These directions will guide you on how to do so, depending on your operating system and chosen installation method.

For a list of which versions of twilio-cli are available, see the releases list.


Package managers


To install a specific version of twilio-cli with Homebrew, use:

brew install twilio@VERSION

Replace VERSION with the semantic version of the release you need—for example, 2.36.1:

brew install twilio@2.36.1

Downgrade from an existing installation

If you have a newer version of twilio-cli already installed, you will need to unlink that installation so that your system can use the past version in subsequent commands:

brew unlink twilio && brew link twilio@VERSION

As we did earlier, replace VERSION with the semantic version of the release you need—for example, 2.36.1.

Restore to the latest version of twilio-cli

To restore your installation of twilio-cli to the latest version again, reverse the previous process and relink to the latest release:

brew unlink twilio@VERSION && brew link twilo


If you installed twilio-cli with any of the other common package managers (scoop, apt, or yum/dnf), uninstall your current version by following the respective uninstall instructions for your operating system and package manager. Afterwards, follow the steps in the Platform executables section below to install a specific version.

Platform executables

If you installed twilio-cli with one of the platform executable files (.pkg, .exe, .deb, or .rpm):

  1. From the releases list, find your desired version and click on Assets under that release to reveal its platform executables.
  2. Download the executable for your operating system.
  3. Install as described in the general installation instructions for your operating system.


If you installed twilio-cli with npm, use the following commands to install a specific version:

npm uninstall -g twilio-cli && npm install -g twilio-cli@VERSION
