Many applications use the Amazon SNS to deliver SMS messages to individuals or to groups. Because SNS is simple and easy to use, you can add push notifications to your application with a modest amount of code.
Today we are making SNS even more useful by adding support for worldwide delivery of SMS messages. You can now use SNS to send SMS text messages to mobile phone numbers in more than 200 countries.
Along with this change we are also adding several other features to this feature:
No Opt-In – Message recipients no longer need to opt-in to SNS before they can receive messages.
Additional Regions – You can now send messages with SMS delivery from the US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions.
Direct Publishing – You can now send messages to a phone
