Exploring USSD Integration with Xano: Twilio and Africa's Talking APIs
In this meeting, the State Changer is seeking guidance on how to integrate USSD functionality into an application. USSD is a phone-based technology that allows users to interact through text prompts. The State Changer is specifically interested in how to include USSD data into their database using Xano.
The suggestion is made to use Twilio, a telephony service with an API that can serve as a bridge between USSD and the Xano database. Another service called Africa's Talking is also recommended for this purpose. A Google search for USSD and API reveals several other potential vendors catering to the African market where USSD is commonly used due to limited internet access.
The State Changer is encouraged to further explore Twilio and Africa's Talking and consult the forum for more suggestions. The State Changer is advised to share updates and experiences with the team.
