Twilio, cloud communications provider we covered for few times in the past, is bringing its voice and messaging APIs to Windows Azure customers. As a result, developers whose apps require features such as interactive voice response, mobile app distribution via SMS, call automation or two-factor authentication, will be able to use Twilio’s REST API to get a flexible, scalable and reliable way to access global telecommunications networks.
But that’s not all — to further sweeten the deal (and get some users right from the bat), Twilio is providing developers with a starting credit of 1,000 free text messages or inbound voice minutes with sign up.
Finally, if you’ve been living under a rock, you should know Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform for building, deploying and scaling web, mobile, enterprise, and many other applications in the cloud.
Additional information on how to integrate Twilio into your Windows Azure apps is available from here.
