Send Laravel Notifications as a Phone Call

Send Laravel Notifications as a Phone Call

Nexmo Voice Channel is a package that adds a notification channel to Laravel using Nexmo’s voice API:

This package provides a notification channel for the Laravel framework that works with Nexmo’s voice API, allowing text-to-speech phone calls. It also provides a fluent interface to construct your message content.

To use this notification channel, you route a notification through VoiceChannel and provide a toVoice() method. The readme documents an example so you can get a visual of using this package:

use Roomies\NexmoVoiceChannel\Markup\Message;
use Roomies\NexmoVoiceChannel\Markup\SayAs;
use Roomies\NexmoVoiceChannel\Markup\Sentence;
use Roomies\NexmoVoiceChannel\NexmoVoiceChannel;

/**
 * Get the notification's delivery channels.
 *
 * @param  mixed  $notifiable
 * @return array
 */
public function via($notifiable)
{
    return [NexmoVoiceChannel::class];
}

/**
 * Get the voice representation of the notification.
 *
 * @param  mixed  $notifiable
 * @return \Roomies\NexmoVoiceChannel\Markup\Message
 */
public function toVoice($notifiable)
{
    return new Message([
        new Sentence('Hi, thanks for joining Roomies.'),
        new Sentence([
            'Your verification code is',
            new SayAs('ABC123')->interpretAs('spell-out')
        ]),
    ]);
}

Here’s another example demonstrating the package’s markup types you can use to create a notification:

new Sentence([
    'Hey!',
    (new Pause)->time('1s'),
    (new Prosody('Wake up!'))->volume('loud'),
    (new Substitution(
        (new SayAs('US'))->interpretAs('spell-out'),
    ))->alias('United States'),
])
