Getting started with SMS is super easy! Follow these steps to be up and running in no time! Do note that you will need a MessageBird Virtual Mobile Number (VMN) to use SMS in combination with the Chat API.
- After you’ve chosen SMS as the Channel you want to add, you’ll be presented with a short form. The first field is a name you can define yourself.
- Next step is to pick a VMN from the dropdown showing all VMNs you own. If you don’t own a VMN yet, you can click on ‘VMN’ to buy one!
- Optionally add a Callback URL but if you don’t need one, click on ‘Save’ and you’re all set!
Done! You’ve just connected a VMN to the Chat API. You are now all set to receive and send the first SMS messages using Chat API.
