Voice API FAQ
Voice API is a tool that integrates the abilities of Internet-based applications and public switch telephone networks. The gupshup.io voice API executes all the telephony and related functions for your application and is incredibly configurable and highly scalable.
This is made possible with the help of the many capabilities offered by the Gupshup platform, such as:
- Automated phone-number verification using missed call verification
- Call patching and masking to enable an efficient and privacy-protected support experience
- Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology to enable better optimization of the customer support experience
- Automated outbound calling with text-to-speech capabilities that can be employed as a fallback mechanism to SMS for sending OTPs to customers
You can integrate voice APIs into your application, even if you don’t have expertise with telecommunication programming. The API can be used as a fallback mechanism for SMS alerts, or for consent collection and lead generation.
Voice APIs allow you to connect with customers from all over the world by integrating with your mobile or web application(s).
