Fake Call is an API that rings a phone. That's it. The service claims to help "polite introverts exit unwanted conversations or meetings." On the other end of the call is a fictional "Steve," who is actually a text-to-speech bot that helps you seem like you're engaging in a real conversation.
The Fake Call API creates accounts, which requires a phone number and password. The phone number must then be verified, to ensure the recipient wants to receive phone calls. The API also allows to give other users authorization to initiate a call for you without sharing your password. The documentation site gives example cURL calls to get you started.
The Fake Call API is built on top of the Twilio API. It uses RESTful calls with data returned as JSON.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
