Create your Vonage Application

In this step you will create a Vonage Application capable of in-app voice communication use cases.

Open a new terminal and, if required, navigate to your project directory.

Create a Vonage application by copying and pasting the command below into terminal. Make sure to change the values of --voice-answer-url and --voice-event-url arguments, by replacing SUBDOMAIN with the actual value used in the previous step:

nexmo app:create "App to Phone Tutorial" --capabilities=voice --keyfile=private.key  --voice-answer-url=https://SUBDOMAIN.loca.lt/voice/answer --voice-event-url=https://SUBDOMAIN.loca.lt/voice/event 

NOTE: An application can be also created using the CLI's interactive mode. For more details on how to create an application and various available application capabilities please see our documentation.

A file named .nexmo-app is created in your project directory and contains the newly created Vonage Application ID and the private key. A private key file named private.key is also created.

Make a note of the Application ID that is echoed in your terminal when your application is created:

NOTE: Information about your application, including the Application ID, can also be found in the Dashboard.
