Twilio Data Tracks vs Twilio Conversations for Chat?
Hi all, I wanted to ask about the pros/cons of building chat with Data Tracks versus using Twilio Conversations for Twilio Video customers. My list so far below.
Data Tracks Pros:
- Free with Video Group Rooms (and P2P)
Data Tracks Cons:
- Need to build out actual chat functionality
- Will likely not be as fully featured as Conversations
- Ready to go chat
- Access to other channels such as SMS and WhatsApp
- Future Conversations improvements
- Separate pricing aside from Video.
