Plivo MMS product is similar to Twilio MMS in that both services support similar formats, file sizes, MPS and storage. However, there are a few key differences.
- The automatic conversion of MMS to SMS (with the image as an attachment link) for international numbers is currently not available from Plivo and is planned for version-2 release (around Q1 2020).
- We store media for a year for the customers to access. Twilio saves the media indefinitely with an additional charge of $5/month/GB. We can extend the one-year on storage on a request and case-by-case basis.
- Twilio currently supports converting a non-supported file format to a supported file format automatically (Plivo will have this feature released in Version 2).
- Twilio currently supports converting the automatic size reduction on images (Plivo will have this feature released in Version 2).
