The SMS API allows you to

Send SMS

You can send single or multi-part messages and track their sending and delivery status in real-time thanks to callback URLs. Our SMS API does also support the sending of binary messages, especially useful for IoT and connected machinery projects.

Receive SMS

Reserved keywords in seconds to enable the reception of SMSs on our shared short number (8937). If you prefer, you can reserved your own short code number and thereby skip over using keywords in your messages. For chatbot projects over SMS, this is a must.
