Proven at scale
Grow your app usage with confidence. Sync is the real-time engine behind Twilio Programmable Chat, which handles chat messages for some of the world’s largest enterprises.
Persistent state in the cloud
Save crucial development time. Twilio persists state in the cloud and synchronizes published changes to subscribed devices, so you don’t have to build your own state management.
Allow users to pick up on their laptop where they left off on their iPhone. Mobile and web SDKs make it easy to manage complex state transitions with a few lines of code.
Real-time features like presence and screen-sharing are easy to build with objects like documents, lists, and maps.
Helper libraries & quickstarts in 6 server-side languages
Build real-time capabilities into your app in the language you already use with helper libraries available from Twilio and its community.
Let users collaborate and co-edit in your app even if they are making simultaneous updates. Twilio implements optimistic concurrency control (OCC) in the REST API and SDKs for managing and resolving differences in state between users.
Gracefully handle devices going offline. Sync maintains state locally and automatically re-synchronizes objects once connectivity is restored.
Keep data private between users. Twilio offers fine-grained access control for each individual object and endpoint, so you can define which users have access to what information.
Build custom workflows with real-time visibility into state changes. Webhooks show every event fired and allow you to build custom interactions with other products.
Data retention policies
Only keep the data that you want, for as long as you need it. Sync lets you specify when and how state data is deleted with configurable time-to-live settings for objects.
Unified real-time engine
Synchronize data from your IoT devices in real time with both browser and mobile, using webhooks and the Sync REST API to connect your custom backends.
Universal device compatibility
Start building natively right out of the box, for any hardware. Sync now also communicates using MQTT, the most ubiquitous protocol for IoT devices.
Scalable device management API
Build your solution with the help of the IoT Device Manager and automate everything later. Manage thousands of devices via our Device Manager REST API, all with state-of-the-art security baked in.
Experience a 99.95% uptime SLA made possible with automated failover and zero-maintenance windows.
Operate at scale
Extend the same app you write once to new markets with configurable features for localization and compliance.
Use the same platform you know for voice, SMS, video, chat, two-factor authentication, and more.
Get to market faster with pay-as-you-go pricing, free support, and the freedom to scale up or down without contracts.
