Platform SDKs

The Twilio Voice Client SDK has been renamed to Twilio Voice JavaScript SDK as of version 2.0.

The Programmable Voice SDKs allow you to add voice-over-IP (VoIP) calling directly into your web and native mobile applications.

How it works

Voice Client Diagram: Your application connects to Twilio, Twilio sends a webhook to your backend to retrieve TwiML instructions, Twilio executes those instructions (e.g. makes a phone call)

  1. You connect to Twilio from your mobile or web app with the Voice SDK
  2. Twilio sends you a webhook to get the TwiML instructions
  3. Your backend responds to Twilio with TwiML instructions
    • For example, you can instruct Twilio to call a number, call a VoIP endpoint, or connect to a conference.
    • E.g. To connect to a phone number, your backend would return <Dial callerId="+155512345678"><Number>+155587654321</Number></Dial>
  4. Twilio executes your TwiML instructions (e.g. Dials the number in your TwiML instructions)
  5. Twilio creates a VoIP connection between your callee and your mobile or web app
