The Layer Platform API is a platform for all types of communication for the internet, web applications, and mobiles applications. Layer allows users to build text messaging, voice messaging, and video functionality into applications for communication.
The Layer API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Layer with other applications and to create new applications. Some example API methods include creating and managing users, sending and receiving messages, and accessing and managing contacts. With the Platform API, servers can trigger events based on actions within your own ecosystem and interact with Layer Messages and Conversations with administrative privileges.
