Plivo vs Twilio: What are the differences?
Developers describe Plivo as "API platform to build Voice & SMS Applications". Plivo provides basic building block APIs in the form of Plivo XML and HTTP API, to create telephony apps, so developers can completely do away with learning the nitty-gritty of the telephony plumbing. On the other hand, Twilio is detailed as "Bring voice and messaging to your web and mobile applications". Twilio offers developers a powerful API for phone services to make and receive phone calls, and send and receive text messages. Their product allows programmers to more easily integrate various communication methods into their software and programs.
Plivo and Twilio can be primarily classified as "Voice and SMS" tools.
Some of the features offered by Plivo are:
- Phone- Global
- Phone- Local and Tollfree Numbers
- Phone- Call routing, call forwarding, caller ID, call waiting, 3-way calling, redial, speed dial, mute, hold, etc
On the other hand, Twilio provides the following key features:
- Phone- Phone Numbers API
- Phone- Convert Text to Speech and Play Audio
- Phone- Record Calls and Store Them
"SMS gateway" is the primary reason why developers consider Plivo over the competitors, whereas "Powerful, simple, and well documented api" was stated as the key factor in picking Twilio.
