US communications startup Twilio has expanded its beta list of countries where is supports voice services further in Eastern Europe, specifically the Czech Republic and Romania. Twilio’s Lisa Weitekamp confirmed that all of their voice features are enabled, including playing audio, recording, conferencing and most important for local developers: full API access.

Techcrunch’s Ingrid Lunden noted the launch along with the addition of Greece, Israel and Switzerland to the beta list as well. Numbers will cost $1 per number in the Czech Republic and $5 per number in Romania. As far as SMS goes, Twilio supports just outbound SMS messaging in both countries for now.

Weitekamp told Netocratic that Twilio’s expansion is, outside of country-specific demand, due to local regulations governing the purchase and sale of phone numbers as well as relations with local mobile carriers. She says that the Czech Republic and Romania are in that way a good fit for Twillio at the moment, offering demand, supportive regulations and good relationships with carriers.

Upcoming countries that could enter the voice beta, according to Weitekamp, will most likely be Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia and Bulgaria – although it’s not a set list and she urges developers to request the service via Twilio’s “let us know you’re interested” feature on their official website.
