Listen to Your Recordings or Voicemail

Any call recordings made with Twilio will be automatically saved on your project. They can then be accessed via Console, or the REST API.

Notice: The first 10,000 minutes of call recordings are stored for free. Projects will be charged an additional recording storage fee for any recording minutes over this mark. To avoid additional recording storage charges, we recommend automating downloading and deletion of your call recordings. For more information, please see Downloading and Deleting Twilio Call Recordings.
