Broadcast status updates via SMS to your subscribers anywhere on the planet using your Vonage account.

Beta

Vonage SMS is currently in beta. The beta test is available to all customers. Please report any issues to Status.io Support.

Overview

Status.io does not charge extra for SMS messages. Instead we built integrations with Twilio and Vonage allowing you to use your own account with independent billing.

Vonage charges per SMS message. International messaging rates vary and we highly recommend reviewing Vonage’s pricing at https://www.vonage.com/communications-apis/sms/pricing/

For best security practices, we recommend creating a separate Vonage account to use only with your status page.
