Flex built-in channels: voice, SMS, chat

While you can take Flex in any direction you choose, we've stocked it with enough features out of the box to help you plan your journey!

When you launch your instance, the phone number Twilio provisions for your account can accept voice calls and SMS. Let's walk through each of the messaging channels now. For working with voice, see this tutorial.

Make sure you are available to accept tasks in Flex (“Available” would be a good status, unless you have customized the Activities for your Flex account).
