TwiML™ Voice: <Room>

Programmable Video Rooms are represented in TwiML through a new noun, <Room>, which you can specify while using the <Connect> verb.

The <Room> noun allows you to connect to a named video conference Room and talk with other participants who are connected to that Room.

To connect a Programmable Voice call to a Room, use the <Room> noun with the UniqueName for the Room.

You may choose the name of the Room. It is namespaced to your account only.

Connect to a Room

When an incoming phone call is made to a Twilio Phone Number, a developer can connect the call to a Twilio Video Room.

<Room> and <Connect> Usage Examples

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Setting the participantIdentity

You can set a unique identity on the incoming caller using an optional property called 'participantIdentity'.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <Room participantIdentity='alice'>DailyStandup</Room>

Note: If you don't set the participantIdentity, then Twilio will set a unique value as the Participant identity.
