It all started with an idea…

MessageBird was founded on the belief that any company, big or small, should be able to reach its clients on any phone, anywhere. So, we built a set of powerful messaging APIs that are easily integrated, high-speed, low-cost, and packed with innovative features. Our SMS, Chat, and Voice messaging platforms are bringing new levels of ease, efficiency and accessibility to company-customer interactions. Through our APIs, dashboard, and integrations, we connect you to 7 billion phones worldwide.
