Enter your number and receive an MMS

Demo available in the US and CA.

When you click "Send MMS", a request is sent to Twilio to deliver an SMS to the provided phone number. The server logic determines the weather forecast in San Francisco and sends a related graphic to the phone number via MMS.

When you click "Send MMS", an AJAX request is made that, in turn, triggers a server‑side HTTP request to Twilio providing a number to MMS, as well as a URL of the photo to be delivered. Image media is automatically transcoded as needed to adapt to carriers and handsets.
