Plivo vs Sinch: What are the differences?

Developers describe Plivo as "API platform to build Voice & SMS Applications". Plivo provides basic building block APIs in the form of Plivo XML and HTTP API, to create telephony apps, so developers can completely do away with learning the nitty-gritty of the telephony plumbing. On the other hand, Sinch is detailed as "Add calling & messaging to your app in minutes". Sinch makes it easy for developers to add voice, messaging and SMS to their apps with just a few lines of code. Enrich your apps with communications that your users will love.

Plivo and Sinch are primarily classified as "Voice and SMS" and "Communications SDK" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Plivo are:

  • Phone- Global
  • Phone- Local and Tollfree Numbers
  • Phone- Call routing, call forwarding, caller ID, call waiting, 3-way calling, redial, speed dial, mute, hold, etc

On the other hand, Sinch provides the following key features:

  • iOS, Android and JavaScript SDK with support for REST
  • Voice calling and SMS at market leading prices
  • Enrich your apps with sticky features such as messaging and calling to increase user retention and engagement

"SMS gateway" is the primary reason why developers consider Plivo over the competitors, whereas "Super smooth SDK" was stated as the key factor in picking Sinch.
