SAN FRANCISCO, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Twilio (
today announced it is joining the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program,
integrating Twilio's communications API platform with Google's Cloud Platform
products to power next generation communications solutions. Twilio is the
first solution for voice and messaging to be integrated with Google Cloud
Platform, exposing Twilio functionality to Google App Engine developers.


Google App Engine, part of Google's Cloud Platform, makes applications easy to
build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale. Twilio's communications API
platform delivers a flexible, scalable and reliable way to communicate for
developers interested in building in-app dialing, conference calling, group
texting, mobile app distribution, two-factor authentication, and more. By
joining the Google Cloud Platform Technology Partner Program, Twilio has made
it easier than ever for App Engine developers to build apps that communicate.

"The modern application is much less a front-to-back stovepipe and much more a
web of information that flows through multiple layers of RESTful API calls.
This thinking leads to corporate service platforms and third party development
ecosystems," said Jeffrey Hammond, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester
Research, Inc., in the January 2013 report entitled "The Future of Mobile
Application Development." "As a result, modern applications are composites,
built from multiple URL endpoints and application frameworks and designed to
get to market quickly. And whether it's Twilio, Google or another vendor,
there are more compelling services available for developers to remix every

"By using Google Cloud Platform and Twilio, independent developers and
enterprises alike can build and scale real world businesses faster than ever,"
said Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson. "The real magic comes from connecting the Twilio
API to the App Engine platform to make apps communicate; developers benefit
from integrating these two incredibly scalable, robust, and reliable
platforms--we can't wait to see what Google App Engine developers build."
