Twilio, the leading Silicon Valley-based cloud communications platform has decided to discontinue support for its long-established Programmable Fax offering, starting December 17, 2021.
Programmable Fax was launched to allow developers to simply send and receive faxes over Twilio’s reliable Rest API. Their goal was to allow companies to integrate and combine the faxing possibilities to virtually any system or application.
However, after years of service, they have made the decision to disable their Programmable Fax offering for all accounts. For new and inactive accounts, access to Programmable Fax has been disabled directly after Twilio’s announcement. As for the rest of the users, the sunset will be effective by mid-December 2021. To help ease the burden of transitioning their customers’ workflows, they have provided detailed migration plans on their Help Center.
In order to redirect Twilio's customers, who still rely on and require a solid API to integrate their faxing needs with their systems or applications, FAX.PLUS is coming to the rescue.
