Beta Lookup

Lookup Mobile Intelligence Packages in Beta 

Lookup has introduced new mobile intelligence packages in its v2 API to help you power trusted interactions and build seamless onboarding experiences for your users. This includes:

  • Line Type Intelligence, which returns the line type of a phone number, identifying everything from fixed VoIP and non-fixed VoIP numbers to landlines, toll-free and more. This is in Public Beta, supported worldwide and available self-service.
  • SIM Swap, which detects recent changes between a mobile phone number and its associated SIM. This is in Private Beta, supported in key markets across Europe and North America. 
  • Call Forwarding, which returns the unconditional call forwarding status of a mobile phone number. This is in Private Beta and only supported in the UK.
  • Lastly, the Lookup v2 API will also be supported by Twilio’s Ireland Region, which means you can call Lookup and ensure you remain data resident within the EU.

Read more about these features in our blog or check out our docs if you’re ready to start building.

Beta Frontline

Twilio Frontline Voice Extensibility 

The Twilio Programmable Voice <Connect> TwiML verb now supports the new TwiML noun <Conversation> as a resource target. This allows for fine-grained customization of Voice and Messaging workflows in Twilio Frontline. Frontline developers can inject custom actions into different stages of an active call. Example use cases include:

  • Executing other Voice TwiML instructions before connecting a customer and a Frontline worker (e.g. customers are sent to an IVR before being connected to a Frontline worker)
  • Configuring in-call behavior (e.g. to enable recording for all calls)
  • Configuring call behavior after a participant leaves the call or when an error occurs (e.g. a customer is prompted to leave a voicemail message in the event no Frontline worker answers their call)

Check out the docs for more information on how to use the new <Connect><Conversation> TwiML functionality in your application.
