How does pricing work for universal channels? 

We charge based on the number of universal channels you create. You can join an unlimited number of universal channels (as a member, not a creator) for free.

Your contacts can join your universal channels for free as well, but they also have to install the app on their own workspace or tenant.

What if I need more than 3 channels?

For more channels, you can choose between our Professional Plan for $99/month or a custom Enterprise Plan if you need to create more than 10 channels.

You can also deactivate unused channels in order to stay within your monthly limit.


  • For individuals who only need up to 3 universal channels to chat with external contacts.

Professional Plan

  • Create up to 10 universal channels.
  • Company-wide plan with centralized admin controls and billing.

Enterprise Plan
