I'll use Twilio & its a versatile cloud communication tool that enables you to add SMS, voice, and video to your app. In this tutorial, I'll demonstrate how to send SMS messages using Twilio's API credentials in Laravel 10.

Laravel's Optional Helper Function

Follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Begin Your Laravel Project

First, create a new Laravel project by running this command in your terminal or command prompt:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel projectName

Step 2: Set Up Twilio Account

Sign up for a Twilio account at After creating an account, add a Twilio phone number. Then, find your Account SID, Auth Token, and phone number. Add them to your .env file like this:


Step 3: Install Twilio SDK

To utilize Twilio's API, install the twilio/sdk composer package. Run this command:

composer require twilio/sdk

Step 4: Create Your Route

Add a new route in the routes/web.php file for the SMS functionality:

use App\Http\Controllers\SmsController;

Route::get('sms-text', [SmsController::class, 'sendText']);

Step 5: Build a Controller

Create a new SmsController in the app/Http/Controllers directory. Add the sendText method:

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Twilio\Rest\Client;

class SmsController extends Controller
    public function sendText()
        $recipientNumber = "RECIPIENT_PHONE_NUMBER";
        $messageContent = "This is a test message from";

        try {
            $accountSid = getenv("TWILIO_SID");
            $authToken = getenv("TWILIO_TOKEN");
            $twilioPhoneNumber = getenv("TWILIO_FROM");

            $client = new Client($accountSid, $authToken);
            $client->messages->create($recipientNumber, [
                'from' => $twilioPhoneNumber,
                'body' => $messageContent

            return response('SMS sent successfully.');

        } catch (\Exception $e) {
            return response("Error: " . $e->getMessage());

Now, run the app and test the SMS sending feature.

In this tutorial, I showed you how to easily integrate Twilio SMS into your Laravel 10 app. By following these steps, you can quickly set up and send SMS messages, enhancing communication within your application.
