    Rode seu aplicativo de videoconferência com chat de texto usando código aberto em ReacJs e Twilio Video Rode seu aplicativo de videoconferência com chat de texto usando código aberto em ReacJs e Twilio Video

    No ano passado, a Twilio lançou aplicativos de vídeo de implantação rápida para que os desenvolvedores se familiarizassem com o Programmable Video em até cinco minutos. Hoje, temos o prazer de anunciar a mais recente melhoria do aplicativo ReactJS de open source: suporte a bate-papo pronto para uso para mensagens em texto e em arquivos.

    Não importa se você está usando o aplicativo como ponto de partida ou como referência canônica durante o desenvolvimento, ao adicionar esse recurso ao aplicativo ReactJS de open source, esperamos acelerar o desenvolvimento à medida que queira criar um bate-papo na sua experiência de vídeo.

    Em primeiro lugar, esta publicação mostra por que o bate-papo é um canal valioso para a experiência de vídeo do usuário final, depois apresenta o novo recurso e analisa o que usamos para desenvolver (alerta de spoiler: utilizamos a própria Conversations API da Twilio).

    Por que adicionar bate-papo à sua …

    Getting Started With Twilio Free SMS for Businesses Get_Started_With_SMS

    Ever forget your phone at home and feel like you’re missing a limb? Cell phones live in our back pocket, purse, on our desk, and in all cases only an arm’s distance away. Our constant proximity and attention to our mobile devices make short message service (SMS), more commonly known as text messages, so powerful to businesses.

    SMS boasts a 98% open rate, making SMS an incredible avenue for getting customers’ immediate attention. But SMS is not a communication avenue to be overused. Because of the personal relationship users have with their phones (aka extra limb), SMS must be leveraged appropriately to garner your customers’ trust and effectively communicate with them.

    We’ll show you 3 ways you can get started sending SMS (for free) for your business and then provide a few SMS sending tips to make sure you’re set up for success.

    Premiers pas avec les SMS gratuits Twilio pour les entreprises Premiers pas avec les SMS gratuits Twilio pour entreprises

    Cela vous est déjà arrivé d'oublier votre téléphone à la maison et d'avoir l'impression qu'il vous manquait un membre ? Les téléphones portables vivent dans nos poches arrière, nos sacs à main, sur nos bureaux – bref ils sont toujours à portée de main. Cette proximité et cette attention constante que nous portons à nos appareils mobiles font ainsi du service de messages courts (SMS), également connu sous le nom de « message texte » ou « texto », un puissant outil pour les entreprises.

    Les SMS peuvent se targuer d'un taux d'ouverture de 98 %, ce qui en fait un formidable moyen d'attirer l'attention immédiate des clients. Pour autant, c'est un moyen de communication dont il convient de ne pas abuser. Du fait du lien étroit que les usagers entretiennent avec leur téléphone (le fameux membre supplémentaire), il faut utiliser les SMS à bon escient si l'on veut gagner …

    Build a Simple Chat Room App in React with Laravel Breeze and Twilio's Conversations API Build a Simple Chat Room App in React with Laravel Breeze and Twilio's Conversation API

    2020 was a huge year for Laravel. It was the year that we saw this beloved framework take leaps and bounds over its competition and push the PHP ecosystem further. The Laravel team managed to make the framework even more powerful by adding new authentication and scaffolding features, which include Jetstream and Breeze.

    Many developers know that full-stack apps with a Vue frontend can be quickly spun up with Laravel Jetstream. What many don’t know is that recently, the Laravel team made it easy to make an Inertia app with Laravel Breeze.

    With this knowledge, let’s have some fun and make a very simple Discord-like app called “Twilcord” that will let multiple users join a room via a phone number or username. Instead of the default Vue frontend, we’ll be using React. This article will show you that you don’t need to build separate backends and frontends …

    Building Twilio’s next-generation Conversations API for chat (and whatever comes next) Conversations-Blog-Header

    We know how valuable in-app and web chat can be in crafting powerful customer engagement. In fact, when we launched our IP Messaging API (which later became known as Twilio Programmable Chat) in 2015, we were among the first to offer developers a fully-featured cloud-hosted chat solution with reliable APIs and SDKs.

    Since then, we’ve seen tens of millions of monthly active chat users interacting on Twilio – building communities, solving customer issues, and connecting with one another around the world. When the world as we know it came to a standstill at the height of the pandemic, developers deployed chat and other messaging-based channels to help distributed teams respond to customer queries and stay connected. The power of chat is only continuing to grow, as we found in the 2021 State of Customer Engagement Report. More than any other channel, over a third of businesses surveyed said they …

    Last year, Twilio launched quick deploy video applications for developers to get up and running with Programmable Video in five minutes or less. Today, we are excited to announce the latest enhancement to the open source ReactJS application: out-of-the-box chat support for textual and file-based messaging.

    Whether you are using the app as a launching off point or a canonical reference during development, by adding this feature to the open source ReactJS application we hope to accelerate your development as you look to build chat within your video experience.

    This post will first explore why chat is a valuable channel for the end-user video experience, introduce the new feature, and discuss what we used to build it (spoiler alert: we leveraged Twilio’s very own Conversations API).

    Why add chat into your video experience?

    Chat within the video experience provides a useful channel for users to send clarifying messages, backlog …
