About Multimedia Message (MMS) APIs

Multimedia Message APIs allow developers to send and receive multimedia messages in their applications. Traditional SMS only contains plain text or emojis whereas MMS contains media attachments such as images, video, audio, and GIFs.

What is a MMS API?

API providers host these application programming interfaces and make them available to developers. These APIs are specific to sending and receiving multimedia messages. They enable one app to talk to another computer without a human in between.

How do MMS APIs work?

Like all APIs, developers send requests to specific endpoints or methods, usually formatted in JSON, XML, or similar. The host processes the authenticated request and returns a result. Providers offer documentation that details the required format and syntax. For sending MMS messages, there is generally a sender, receiver, and message (including any media attachments).

Who are MMS APIs for?

Developers and businesses that want to utilize sending messages, receiving messages, or both in their applications.

Here are some common business use cases for sending MMS messages:

  • Deliver rich media messages to customers or receive them from customers
  • Deliver coupons to customers via text
  • Send images of in-stock items
  • How-to videos for customer support
  • Phone verification and two-factor authentication

Why are MMS APIs important?

APIs enable businesses in all industries to grow more quickly than they could otherwise. New innovation and digital transformation projects in companies will continue this trend.
