What is Voice Broadcasting?

Voice broadcasting involves sending prerecorded voice messages to a large group of recipients simultaneously. In this process, a single recorded message is delivered to a list of phone numbers, allowing businesses and organizations to efficiently communicate with their target audience. Cloud communications providers such as Plivo offer voice broadcasting as a service, enabling users to reach out to a wide range of recipients with personalized voice messages.
