Share attachments with ease

End-users can send photos, video, or audio directly to your app or agents for real-time information sharing. Agents can reply with rich media resources too, for a truly helpful customer interaction.

Why Bandwidth

Bandwidth is different because we own the APIs and the network. Because we own them both, we’re able to provide transparency and service that other providers simply can’t. Bandwidth provides status and error codes that show if your messages were delivered, where they were blocked, and why, giving you deeper insight for a better ROI.

Our messaging experts have decades of experience in the industry, and have helped to define the past, present, and future of text messaging. That industry experience comes with deep connections to the carriers, allowing us to work directly with them to resolve issues.

Enterprise-scale,
developer friendly
