Reviews (Snippets from G2)


  • Plivo is a very robust and flexible platform for all your phone needs. the API is awesome and well documented.
  • The easy to use dashboard makes making changes quick and easy to understand. The API documentation made for a fast integration within my system.
  • The price is always the best in the market, and their customer service is really impressive too.
  • Was really easy to setup at start, took all of a few minutes. Since then it's taken close to zero work to maintain overall


  • We still need to do some configuration when adding new countries (we have a global solution so, we add a lot of countries).
  • In all things IT, there is sometimes downtime. That has been our biggest frustration.
  • Some of the language-specific API's are no as good as competitor's in completeness or quality.
  • Options for a longer text message would be great. We understand that text messages should be brief, but we would like to be able to send a cancellation notice and a makeup notice all out at one time.
