Check out what’s been happening here at Sinch and industry-wide recently…
Great news! In our latest SDK release, CallKit support for iOS is now (finally!) available from Sinch. With an improved answer rate and overall calling experience for both app-to-app and video calling, VoIP calls can now be received as native calls. They will even respond correctly to system-level behaviors, such as Do Not Disturb! Update to the latest SDK today!
We’ve added a cost control feature to the Sinch Portal for PSTN termination to make it easier for you to save money and prevent fraud. We want you to keep full control of deployments without implementing a callback API – now, you can control the maximum per-minute rate for outbound phone calls. Calls to a destination above your specified rate will automatically be hung up and no fee will be charged. Don’t take our word for it though, login in the top right and check it out now for yourself!
The latest Video APIs have landed! Available for both iOS and Android operating systems, easily add video calling based features to your mobile application, which not only provides both video and audio streams, but also makes it possible for users to capture screenshots, record video on the client side, and apply effects and filters to their stream. Place this functionality seamlessly in your product offering to enhance the communications experience!
Earlier this quarter we were happy to release new Verification SDKs, with a feature for SMS verification on the Android SDK now available for the first time! With the integration of an SMS Retrieval API, this is our most up-to-date SDK yet! It isn’t just for Android systems, though; Swift 4 support for iOS has also been implemented! Want to find out all the small details that make a big difference? Visit our Downloads page to get your file, unpack it and add it to your project!
Our latest tutorial enables you to send OTP codes with text-to-speech in just a few clicks! Christian Jensen, one of our developers, has put together a great, easy-to-follow tutorial outlining how you can use Node.js to build a text-to-speech call that reads out PIN codes. Complete with Callout documentation, you could use this type of call for weather updates, or even fraud alerts! Want to get started? All you need is a Node development environment and some credits on your Sinch account. Check it out!
