The documentation for the Twilio API can be found here.

The PHP library documentation can be found here.

Supported PHP Versions

This library supports the following PHP implementations:

  • PHP 7.2
  • PHP 7.3
  • PHP 7.4

Installation

You can install twilio-php via composer or by downloading the source.

Via Composer:

twilio-php is available on Packagist as the twilio/sdk package:

composer require twilio/sdk

Quickstart

Send an SMS

// Send an SMS using Twilio's REST API and PHP
<?php
$sid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/console
$token = "YYYYYY"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/console

$client = new Twilio\Rest\Client($sid, $token);
$message = $client->messages->create(
  '8881231234', // Text this number
  [
    'from' => '9991231234', // From a valid Twilio number
    'body' => 'Hello from Twilio!'
  ]
);

print $message->sid;

Make a Call

<?php
$sid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/console
$token = "YYYYYY"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/console

$client = new Twilio\Rest\Client($sid, $token);

// Read TwiML at this URL when a call connects (hold music)
$call = $client->calls->create(
  '8881231234', // Call this number
  '9991231234', // From a valid Twilio number
  [
      'url' => 'https://twimlets.com/holdmusic?Bucket=com.twilio.music.ambient'
  ]
);

Specify Region and/or Edge

To take advantage of Twilio's Global Infrastructure, specify the target Region and/or Edge for the client:

<?php
$sid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/console
$token = "YYYYYY"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/console

$client = new Twilio\Rest\Client($sid, $token, null, 'au1');
$client->setEdge('sydney');

A Client constructor without these parameters will also look for TWILIO_REGION and TWILIO_EDGE variables inside the current environment.

This will result in the hostname transforming from api.twilio.com to api.sydney.au1.twilio.com.

Generating TwiML

To control phone calls, your application needs to output TwiML.

Use Twilio\TwiML\(Voice|Messaging|Fax)Response to easily chain said responses.

<?php
$response = new Twilio\TwiML\VoiceResponse();
$response->say('Hello');
$response->play('https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3', ['loop' => 5]);
print $response;

That will output XML that looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Response>
    <Say>Hello</Say>
    <Play loop="5">https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3</Play>
</Response>
