My buddies over at Twilio released a new service yesterday called Twilio Client. I got the scoop about this a number of weeks ago and couldn't wait to talk about it.Twilio Client is a super slick service that allows you to:
- Make Outbound Phone Calls From the Browser
- Receive Inbound Phone Calls in the Browser
- Make Calls Between Two Browsers
You can sign up for a free developer account and get started right away with the Quickstart. I built my Twilio Client demo app to test out all of these features in 15 minutes. No kidding.
I can already envision a ton of great use cases for Twilio Client. Embed it in the Customer Portal. Put in on a Force.com Sites page or on your SiteForce website. Perhaps even build an entire call center app! I suspect we'll soon be running some CloudSpokes challenges with the Twilio Client.
