VSMS Frequently Asked Questions
Google Verified SMS (V-SMS) offers businesses the ability to send branded messages from verified business profiles to end users on Android devices. There is no additional download required for end users, and they simply benefit from receiving messages from a trustworthy and verified source.
Verified SMS creates a secure SMS platform through verified business senders. To achieve this, Telnyx registers businesses and implements endpoints to support Google V-SMS through our Omnichannel Messaging API. Once a business is registered via the Telnyx Trust Hub where they submit basic information about their business, they can start sending V-SMS to all of their Android user base.
Branded SMS are sent from a rich profile including the business name, description, and logo. The logo also appears with a blue shield and a checkmark to indicate that it has been verified.
The verified badge text provides many benefits to the end users. First, it helps them differentiate between spam and legitimate messages. Second, it is the only way that a recipient can ensure that their message is coming from a verified source. Third, it comes with rich features like link previews that offer more engagement and an intuitive messaging experience.
Verified SMS is more limited than RCS Business Messaging, which comes with additional features like rich carousels, suggested replies, the ability to send location, and more. We offer RCS through our Omnichannel API as well!
