Integration of Twilio and Google Drive

Twilio has announced the launch of its new Google Drive integration. This integration will allow Twilio customers to send and receive SMS messages using Google Drive as their SMS backend. This can be very useful for a number of use cases ranging from sending automated SMS reminders to your customers, tracking campaign performance through detailed analytics reports on messages received, or even for marketing purposes like sending SMS coupons to your customers. In addition to this, Google had also launched a Twilio integration into Google Spreadsheets at the same time which will allow users to get started quickly by setting up the integration directly from within Google Sheets.

Benefits of Integration of Twilio and Google Drive

There are multiple benefits of the integration between Twilio and Google Drive which include:

  • Easy setup and no technical skills required for implementation. As mentioned above, you can now initiate the integration directly from within Google spreadsheets which makes it extremely easy for you to set up the integration without any technical skills required. You can also create messages in various formats like rich text or HTML and preview them directly from within the spreadsheet without needing to switch between platforms. In case you're not comfortable working with spreadsheets, you can use the TwiML object in Google Apps Script to create TwiML responses programmatically which can then be sent as SMS messages. You can also choose from a variety of integrations like Appy Pie Connect, IFTTT, VoiceBot, Dialpad, etc. These integrations are simple to set up and can integrate with your G Suite account in just minutes.
  • Seamless integration with Google Sheets. One of the biggest benefits of using Google Sheets as your SMS backend is that you don't need to worry about building custom code for your application – you can just focus on adding the business logic to your app and leave everything else to Twilio's powerful platform. We have also built an open source library called TwilioSMSExport which allows you to export your messages directly from your spreadsheet into a csv file so that you can perform data analysis right away. The library is available on our GitHub page here. Also, when you use Google Spreadsheets as your SMS backend, all message history is stored in the same document which makes it extremely easy for you to analyze performance data related to your campaigns. Live demo.
  • Advanced reporting capabilities. Twilio allows you to track all kinds of information about messages sent through your application with detailed statistics such as delivered messages, failed messages, message durations, etc. This makes it easy for you to analyze results and take action on future campaigns based on real-time data instead of analyzing historical trends only. It also helps you understand why some messages failed so that you can fix the issues related to them in future campaigns rather than spending a lot of money on sending messages that aren't delivered successfully because of problems with underlying infrastructure, etc.
