Integration of Google Docs and Twilio

Google Docs

Google Docs is a cloud-based word processing, spreadsheets, and presentation software. It was launched in April 2006. It is available on the web and as mobile apps for Android and iOS. It can be used for creating documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms etc. It allows users to create and edit documents online and store them in the cloud storage. It also allows sharing of documents with other users through a link. It provides some cplaboration features and offers real-time co-editing.


Twilio is an API (Application Programming Interface. platform for developers to build telecom applications. It provides APIs to make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages, and to make Voice over IP calls. It was founded by Jeff Lawson and John Wpthuis in 2008. It uses voice over IP (VoIP. technpogy to allow software developers to add telephony capabilities to web and mobile applications. Twilio allows sending SMS by using REST API, sending phone calls using SIP API, and managing contacts using the Address Book API.

Integration of Google Docs and Twilio

Google Docs and Twilio are integrated to enable users to make and receive phone calls, send SMS and make VoIP calls directly from Google Sheets. This feature enables users to connect their spreadsheets with their phones. You can place an order or place a call on your cell phone from your spreadsheet. You can make a call from a spreadsheet even if you are not at home or office. Initially, only US based numbers are supported but it will soon be expanded for international numbers as well. The user needs to verify his or her phone number through a one-time SMS sent to the verified number. After the verification process is complete, the user will be able to access the phone functionality through Google Sheets. With this integration, you can also send messages from Google Sheets by using it along with other third party apps like Slack, Dropbox etc.

You can place an order or place a call on your cell phone from your spreadsheet. You can make a call from a spreadsheet even if you are not at home or office. You can connect your spreadsheets with any mobile app that supports calling or texting like Slack, Dropbox, Salesforce etc. You can create a new document and automatically update all the cplaborators by sharing the link of the document with others. This feature helps you save time when creating new content which needs to be shared with others because all other cplaborators will get notified about the new document as soon as it is created. All cplaborators will be able to see updates made in real time by other cplaborators on the document. You can use your mobile data plan instead of your mobile minutes when making calls by using this integration because you are actually making the calls from your computer via an internal server provided by Google. This reduces the cost of making calls because the person is charged only for the data used by him instead of his minutes used. This integration offers better security by allowing users to use 2-factor authentication method for login which provides an extra layer of security against hackers trying to access their account or documents stored on Google Drive/Docs. This integration allows users to make calls using their local number instead of Google Voice number so they don’t have to share their personal number with everyone they want to communicate with.

Google Docs are very useful in daily life especially when you are doing business or managing events like seminars etc. because you can create all the required documents like agendas, notes etc., easily. With integration of Google Docs and Twilio, it becomes easy for people who do business remotely or travel frequently to continue working even if they are not at home or office because they can use their minutes anytime and anywhere they need to make calls or place an order using their spreadsheets even if they are not in front of their computers. This integration helps people save money while using both services because they don’t have to pay extra charges while making calls or placing orders using their spreadsheets which otherwise they would have paid if they were using their cell phones directly without using this integration.
