Do you sometimes feel like you get stuck in a maze of disconnected applications? Instead of checking all of your apps all the time, let Zapier bring everything together for you. This Zapier integration can send your Twilio SMS messages to your email inbox via Gmail, so you don't have to check Twilio to see if new customer SMS messages have arrived. It's like a pair of stilts that lets you see over the walls of the maze.

Note: Set up as many email recipients as you need by adding separate boxes in the form.

How It Works

  1. Twilio receives a new SMS message
  2. Zapier sends it from your Gmail address as a new email message
