What is voice_start?

- It is a set of instructions sent to the API on what to do upon incoming calls.

When someone calls your virtual number, our API will lookup a parameter we call voice_start

This parameter contains instructions from you as a developer, telling what the API should do. The instructinos could either be specified as a webhook (a URL to a web script) or as a plain JSON string.

The instructions could look something like this:
