How to Make A Phone Call using Node.js and Twilio Programmable Voice

Twilio Programmable Voice allows you to make and receive voice calls in your software application. In this tutorial, you’ll see a demonstration of how to use Programmable Voice to make a voice call directly from a Node.js app.

Prerequisites

  • A free Twilio account ( register here and receive $10 in Twilio credit!)
  • Node.js installed on your machine
  • A phone that can make phone calls, to test the project

Set up your environment

mkdir nodejs-phone-call
cd nodejs-phone-call

Install the  Twilio Node Helper Library from your command line with the following:

npm install twilio
