We are improving our Documentation, API references, learning resources & tooling to help you more effectively use our services. We want to help you find everything you need to integrate Nexmo APIs into your code.
As we start this transition, we’d love to hear from you with thoughts & suggestions. If you’ve got something, positive or negative, to tell us, please tell us using the feedback tool at the bottom of each guide or file an issue on GitHub. - Nexmo
Get started with Nexmo with tutorials that will walk you through building a variety of practical applications
Using the Verify API to allow users to login to a Ruby application.
By asking your customer to provide a phone number — and then validating the legitimacy of that number — you minimize fraud and ensure that you can easily contact that customer in the future.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to send out voice messages and see who was contacted, who responded, and when. These voice-based critical alerts are more persistent than a text message, making your message more likely to be noticed. Additionally, with the recipient confirmation, you can be sure that your message made it through.
Programmable SMS is not just useful for one way notifications. When you combine outbound notifications with inbound messages you create chat-like interactions between your company and your customers.
Use the Number Insight and Developer API from Ruby code to validate, sanitize and determine the cost to call or message a number.
Protect user's number privacy by connecting users together for private voice communication.
Phone numbers are everywhere in advertising: on billboards, in TV ads, on websites, in newspapers. Often these numbers all redirect to the same call center, where an agent needs to inquire why the person is calling, and where they saw the advert. Call Whispers make this so much simpler.
Replace your toll-free numbers (e.g. 800, 0800) with easy to use, smart local numbers that allow you to provide a better customer service.
Increase your application security
While it would be easy to confirm a phone number with Nexmo Verify every time a user provides you with their number this is hardly always necessary. By combining Nexmo Verify with Nexmo Number Insight, and applying your own fraud scoring logic, it is extremely easy to build your own fraud detection system.
Make it easy for visitors to navigate an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) application with simple text-to-speech (TTS) prompts.
All mobile phones can send and receive SMS messages, and nearly everybody has a phone. This makes SMS a great choice to communicate with your users from your application.
We live in a world of data and analytics where we use unique identifiers to measure the impact of past decisions in order to fine tune future ones. You can use phone numbers in this way too. For example, you track the most popular phone numbers used for television radio, magazine, print or online advertising, and the times those phone numbers are used, in order to improve future campaigns.
