2018 was a historical year for appear.in. We launched the PRO plan, and introduced great new features like built-in Recording! During the last year we’ve seen 10+ million unique users on appear.in, who in turn have held over 58 million video meetings. Wow! Thank you for your support, and for trusting us with something as critical as your collaboration needs.
We wanted to share a few important changes that we’re making to appear.in in 2019, as part of our commitment to transparency in how we’re building appear.in and keeping our supporters up-to-date!
A note to existing PRO members
We don’t want these changes to impact the 11,500+ users that have supported us on this journey so far. In appreciation of this support, all active paid PRO accounts as of 28 February, 2019 will retain the existing limits of their plans for a minimum of 1 year. As long as your paid subscription remains active you will retain the previous PRO limits and PRO features, so we recommend switching your billing to annual. This will minimize billing issues and ensure your account isn’t mistakenly canceled. If you make changes to your account after this time (such as downgrading or adding/removing add-ons) this may also result in the loss of these benefits. If you have questions please feel free to email us for further clarification or before making changes to your account.
What’s changing in 2019
2019 is fresh in our minds, and with the new Business plan released we took some time to evaluate how our plans align with the different use-cases of our customers. For some time the PRO plan has been used by individuals and businesses alike - despite being designed as a personal-use plan from the beginning. Features like user management and organization never really existed on the PRO plan, and it was for this reason that we created Business. With new plan options, we feel it’s appropriate to evaluate the offerings of each plan, and make adjustments based on what the average user’s needs are.
With that in mind, as of 00:00 GMT 1 March, 2019, all new PRO subscriptions will include ownership of 3 rooms (previously 10), and will no longer include the Membership feature. These changes have been made to better align PRO with what it was originally designed as - a personal-use plan for individuals.
If you’re an existing FREE user and want to lock in the current PRO features, you can upgrade your account now to PRO now with the coupon code GOPRO2019 to receive 30% off your first month.
For teams and organizations that are looking for a shared account, the new Business plan offers built-in user management, a custom subdomain, Recording for free, our new Calendar integration, and a variable limit for users so the plan can grow with you!
