How do I check if my Twilio number can send picture messages?

Twilio currently offers MMS-enabled phone numbers in Canada only.

Searching for New Numbers

If you are buying phone numbers from our Buy a Number page, you’ll see an “MMS-enabled” icon (like the existing Voice-enabled and SMS-enabled icons) highlighted for phone numbers that support picture messaging.

You can also use the AvailablePhoneNumbers API to find MMS-enabled numbers. You can use the “MmsEnabled” list filter parameter to filter the list of numbers returned.

Check Capabilities of Existing Numbers

If you want to check if a number you already own is MMS-enabled, make an HTTP GET request to the IncomingPhoneNumbers resource URI or use our API Explorer to check the property for your number. The property for an MMS-enabled number will look like this:


<Capabilities>
    <Voice>true</Voice>
    <SMS>true</SMS>
    <MMS>true</MMS>
</Capabilities>
