Twilio Calling: Cloud Telephony Startup Adds An Android SDK, Now Works On 75% Of All Smartphones
Cloud-based telephony API startup Twilio has made significant inroads into VoIP and other carrier services like SMS by launching products that work on the web and in iOS apps, supporting 30,000 developers in the process. Today it's widening that net considerably with the launch of a new Android client, the first SDK from the company to work on Google's platform. And it hints that Windows Phone may be next in line. Considering that Android is currently the most popular smartphone platform globally, this potentially gives Twilio a much bigger opportunity to deliver services to the wider smartphone market -- with Android and iOS together accounting for 75 percent of the existing smartphone market, according to Gartner.
