We’re always working hard to expand our global coverage, and today, we’re excited to announce that you can now use local and mobile Malaysian numbers to make calls and send messages. With a local phone number, your business can have a locally-relevant identity and your customers can reach you on a familiar, geographic prefix. Mobile numbers with voice or sms capability allow your customers to communicate with you at local call and messaging rates. These new numbers are available now through the Twilio Console and the Phone Number API.
We’re also launching local phone numbers in 11 new countries and want to give you first access. If you’re interested in trying out these new numbers, sign up for a developer preview.
  • Mobile Dual (Voice + SMS) in South Africa
  • Mobile SMS in Denmark, Italy, Latvia, Mexico, and Portugal
  • Local Voice in Chile, Colombia, Norway, Panama, and the Philippines

These numbers have gone through a rigorous performance and reliability testing process. As a next step, we are offering these numbers by request as a developer preview, so we can verify the quality with real world testing.
We have thoroughly vetted these numbers and don’t expect issues, but we advise against using test numbers in production. Also, we may have limited stock of preview numbers, so bear with us if we’re unable to accommodate your request.
If you’re interested in testing with developer preview numbers, get in touch! We can’t wait to see what you build!
