So what are these?

What is Agora?

Agora Live Video SDK aims to add live video calls and live streams inside applications easier. The SDK is very low-level that allows enterprise development teams to control every aspect of the live video experience.

What is Twilio?

Twilio originally started by helping developers automate traditional phone calls and SMS text messages. But today, developers can use it to build business communication (in-app and otherwise) across the customer journey.
