TwiML™ Voice: <Room>
This Twiml Verb is not currently available when using Twilio Regions Ireland (IE1) or Australia (AU1). This is currently only supported with the default US1 region. A full list of unsupported products and features with Twilio Regions is documented here.
Programmable Video Rooms are represented in TwiML through the
<Room> noun, which you can specify while using the <Connect> verb.
<Room> noun allows you to connect to a named Programmable Video Room and talk with other participants who are connected to that Room.
Note that only Group Rooms support PSTN Participants.
To connect a Programmable Voice call to a Room, use the
<Room> noun and provide the
UniqueName for the Room you would like to connect to. If an in-progress Video Room with that unique name does not exist for your account, Twilio will move to the next set of TwiML instructions you have provided, or disconnect the call if the
<Room> is the final TwiML instruction.
