What is Echo

Echo will just output whatever TwiML is passed into it via the URL. It is useful for building stateless, outbound apps, where arbitrarily complex content of the call is pre-generated and just passed into the REST API to initiate a call.

How to Use Echo

Direct your call flow to this url:

http://twimlets.com/echo

Parameters to Send

The following parameters may/must be sent:

Attribute Name Allowed Values Required?
Twiml A chunk of TwiML to echo back. Remember to URL encode the TwiML. N
