The Twilio Programmable Fax API supports the integration of fax transmission functionality between apps and fax machines. It allows users to send faxes and access past fax records. The RESTful API sends HTTP requests and requires HTTP basic authentication.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including email, Telephony, and Fitness. Highlights today include APIs for Google Fit fitness applications and an API for promoting efficient app energy usage. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Twilio introduced a new Fax API in Beta. The API allows connected apps to both send and receive faxes to and from legacy fax machines. While the API might seem counterintuitive, the business reality of today's marketplace continues to see many businesses across industries rely on fax communication.
