Readme

Source

react-native-twilio-programmable-voice

This is a React-Native wrapper for Twilio Programmable Voice SDK which lets you make and receive calls from your React-Native App. This module is not affiliated with nor officially maintained by Twilio, and it is maintained by open source contributors.

Twilio Programmable Voice SDK

  • Android 4.5.0 (bundled within the module)
  • iOS 5.1.0 (specified by the app's own podfile)

Breaking changes in v4.0.0

The module implements react-native autolinking as many other native libraries > react-native 0.60.0, therefore it doesn't need to be linked manually.

Android: update Firebase Messaging to 17.6.+. Remove the following block from your application's AndroidManifest.xml if you are migrating from v3.

    <!-- [START instanceId_listener] -->
    <service
        android:name="com.hoxfon.react.TwilioVoice.fcm.VoiceFirebaseInstanceIDService"
        android:exported="false">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="com.google.android.gms.iid.InstanceID" />
        </intent-filter>
    </service>
    <!-- [END instanceId_listener] -->

Android X is supported.

Data passed to the event deviceDidReceiveIncoming does not contain the key call_state, because state of Call Invites was removed in Twilio Android and iOS SDK v3.0.0

  • iOS: params changes for connectionDidConnect and connectionDidDisconnect

    to => call_to from => call_from error => err

New features

Twilio Programmable Voice SDK v3.0.0 handles call invites directly and makes it easy to distinguish a call invites from an active call, which previously was confusing. To ensure that an active call is displayed when the app comes to foreground you should use the promise getActiveCall(). To ensure that a call invite is displayed when the app comes to foreground use the promise getCallInvite(). Please note that call invites don't have a call_state field.

You should use hold() to put a call on hold.

You can be notified when a call is ringing by listening for callStateRinging events.

iOS application can now receive the following events, that in v3 where only dispatched to Android:

  • deviceDidReceiveIncoming
  • callInviteCancelled
  • callStateRinging
  • connectionIsReconnecting
  • connectionDidReconnect

Breaking changes in v3.0.0

  • initWitToken returns an object with a property initialized instead of initilized
  • iOS event connectionDidConnect returns the same properties as Android move property to => call_to move property from => call_from

Installation

Before starting, we recommend you get familiar with Twilio Programmable Voice SDK. It's easier to integrate this module into your react-native app if you follow the Quick start tutorial from Twilio, because it makes very clear which setup steps are required.

npm install react-native-twilio-programmable-voice --save
  • React Native 0.60+

CLI autolink feature links the module while building the app.

  • React Native <= 0.59
react-native link react-native-twilio-programmable-voice

iOS Installation

If you can't or don't want to use autolink, you can also manually link the library using the instructions below (click on the arrow to show them):

Manually link the library on iOS

Follow the instructions in the React Native documentation to manually link the framework

After you have linked the library with react-native link react-native-twilio-programmable-voice check that libRNTwilioVoice.a is present under YOUR_TARGET > Build Phases > Link Binaries With Libraries. If it is not present you can add it using the + sign at the bottom of that list.

Edit your Podfile to include TwilioVoice framework

source 'https://github.com/cocoapods/specs'

# min version for TwilioVoice to work
platform :ios, '10.0'

target <YOUR_TARGET> do
    ...
    pod 'TwilioVoice', '~> 5.2.0'
    ...
end
cd ios/ && pod install
CallKit

The iOS library works through CallKit and handling calls is much simpler than the Android implementation as CallKit handles the inbound calls answering, ignoring, or rejecting. Outbound calls must be controlled by custom React-Native screens and controls.

To pass caller's name to CallKit via Voip push notification add custom parameter 'CallerName' to Twilio Dial verb.

    <Dial>
    <Client>
        <Identity>Client</Identity>
        <Parameter name="CallerName">NAME TO DISPLAY</Parameter>
    </Client>
    </Dial>
VoIP Service Certificate

Twilio Programmable Voice for iOS utilizes Apple's VoIP Services and VoIP "Push Notifications" instead of FCM. You will need a VoIP Service Certificate from Apple to receive calls. Follow the official Twilio instructions to complete this step.

Android Installation

Setup FCM

You must download the file google-services.json from the Firebase console. It contains keys and settings for all your applications under Firebase. This library obtains the resource senderID for registering for remote GCM from that file.

android/build.gradle
buildscript {
    dependencies {
        // override the google-service version if needed
        // https://developers.google.com/android/guides/google-services-plugin
        classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.3.3'
    }
}

// this plugin looks for google-services.json in your project
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'
AndroidManifest.xml
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE" />

    <application ....>
        <!-- Twilio Voice -->
        <!-- [START fcm_listener] -->
        <service
            android:name="com.hoxfon.react.RNTwilioVoice.fcm.VoiceFirebaseMessagingService">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="com.google.firebase.MESSAGING_EVENT" />
            </intent-filter>
        </service>
        <!-- [END fcm_listener] -->

If you can't or don't want to use autolink, you can also manually link the library using the instructions below (click on the arrow to show them):

Manually link the library on Android

Make the following changes:

android/settings.gradle
include ':react-native-twilio-programmable-voice'
project(':react-native-twilio-programmable-voice').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-twilio-programmable-voice/android')
android/app/build.gradle
dependencies {
   implementation project(':react-native-twilio-programmable-voice')
}
android/app/src/main/.../MainApplication.java

On top, where imports are:

import com.hoxfon.react.RNTwilioVoice.TwilioVoicePackage;  // <--- Import Package

Add the TwilioVoicePackage class to your list of exported packages.

@Override
protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
    return Arrays.asList(
            new MainReactPackage(),
            new TwilioVoicePackage()         // <---- Add the package
            // new TwilioVoicePackage(false) // <---- pass false if you don't want to ask for microphone permissions
    );
}

Usage

import TwilioVoice from 'react-native-twilio-programmable-voice'

// ...

// initialize the Programmable Voice SDK passing an access token obtained from the server.
// Listen to deviceReady and deviceNotReady events to see whether the initialization succeeded.
async function initTelephony() {
    try {
        const accessToken = await getAccessTokenFromServer()
        const success = await TwilioVoice.initWithToken(accessToken)
    } catch (err) {
        console.err(err)
    }
}

function initTelephonyWithToken(token) {
    TwilioVoice.initWithAccessToken(token)

    // iOS only, configure CallKit
    try {
        TwilioVoice.configureCallKit({
            appName:       'TwilioVoiceExample',                  // Required param
            imageName:     'my_image_name_in_bundle',             // OPTIONAL
            ringtoneSound: 'my_ringtone_sound_filename_in_bundle' // OPTIONAL
        })
    } catch (err) {
        console.err(err)
    }
}
