In the ever-evolving landscape of technology and innovation, recognition of excellence is a testament to a company's dedication, vision, and impact on the industry. We are thrilled to announce that Sendbird has been honored with a 2023 API Award in the Best in Communications APIs category. These awards celebrate remarkable achievements in the world of APIs, acknowledging the outstanding technical innovation, adoption, and reception within the global API and integration community.


The API economy has witnessed significant growth over the past decade, and Sendbird's Communications API Platform has played a pivotal role in helping API and integration professionals and engineers shape the future of the multi-trillion-dollar market for API-driven products and services. In today's digital economy, where API-centric architecture and platforms are becoming increasingly integral, Sendbird stands at the forefront.
