In this Programmable Voice Calling Quickstart, you'll learn how to sign up and log in to your MessageBird Dashboard, and how to collect, manage, and use your free API keys.
First thing’s first, sign up for your free MessageBird account at www.messagebird.com.
You'll be asked to verify your mobile phone number, simply to check that you're human. In return, you'll receive 10 free test SMS credits for testing the MessageBird's SMS APIs and all the Dashboard tools.
You can only use your free test SMS credits to send outbound SMS to your verified number. If you want to test Voice Calls, you first need to top up your account balance.
You can create, manage, and retrieve your API keys (both test and live) from the MessageBird Developers dashboard.
Learn about the difference between test and live API Keys.
Congrats! You're all ready to start testing the Voice Calling API.
