It has become known that in September this year, the cost of using corporate Slack is going to increase, and that the terms of the free tariff are going to change. The developers of the service have taken this step for the first time since its launch in 2014.
According to available data, price increases will affect users of the Pro rate. As of September 1, this year, the cost of signing Pro will increase from $8 to $8.75 per month. When signing Pro for a year, the price will rise from $667 to $7.25 per month. The price increases will only affect users of Pro subscriptions worldwide and will not affect companies that have chosen the Black Business Plus or individual corporate tariffs. Before the date is announced, users may delay the price increases for a year. To this end, the annual subscription should be issued at an old price until September 1. This is relevant for corporate and private users of the service.
At the same time, it was announced that the conditions on the Slack free rate would change as of September. Currently, users can view the last 10,000 messages and download up to 5 Gbytes of content. From 1 September, Slack will display messages received over the last 90 days and downloaded content for that period without a limit on volume. Free Slack users will also have access to the Clips function, which will allow the transmission of audio and video content, screen shots, etc. in the channels and personal messages. In addition, free users will be able to set the period during which messages are to be stored.
