Pricing changes for the Pro plan and updates to the free plan

Over the years, we’ve expanded our product offering, including flexible tools to connect in more ways, robust security features, app integrations, workflows, and much more. To ensure we can continue to deliver innovations that delight our customers and help their businesses thrive, we’re increasing the price of our Pro plan, and making some changes to our free plan. Both changes go into effect on September 1, 2022.

Free plan changes

Starting September 1, 2022, we’re simplifying limits for the free plan. Instead of a 10,000-message limit and 5 GB of storage, we're giving full access to the past 90 days of message history and file storage, so you’ll never have to guess when your team will hit your limit. You'll also have expanded access to features, including clips and message and file retention settingsView FAQs about the upcoming changes below.

FAQs for the Pro plan price increase

Will pricing only be increasing for the Pro plan?
Yes, pricing is only changing for the Pro plan. Pricing for the Business+ and Enterprise Grid plans will remain the same. 

When does the price increase go into effect?
The increase is effective September 1, 2022. Customers that did not lock in the legacy pricing before this date will see this price change on their next renewal date after September 1, 2022. Visit your workspace's Billing page to see your next renewal date. 

My workspace is currently taking advantage of a promotion — will the price increase impact that?
Active discounts will still apply with the Pro plan price increase for the duration of the discount period or the promotion, as applicable.

Will this impact the Education or Nonprofits discounts?
Active discounts for Education and Nonprofits will still apply with the Pro plan price increase. You can see how this affects your workspace from the Billing page.

FAQs for changes to the free plan

What new features will be available on the free plan?
Customers using the free plan will get access to clips, which allow anyone to share audio and video messages in Slack. 

What will happen to messages and files in my workspace older than 90 days?
All messages, files, and clips older than 90 days will be hidden. At any time, you can upgrade to a paid plan to unlock access to your workspace's entire message and file history.

How will 90-day message and file limits work if my workspace uses Slack Connect?
If your free workspace has been invited to use Slack Connect to work with another organization, messages and files older than 90 days in Slack Connect channels will be accessible. However, in Slack Connect direct messages, messages and files older than 90 days will be hidden for teams on the free plan.

How will message and file retention work?
Starting September 1, 2022, Workspace Owners can adjust retention settings to automatically delete messages and files older than 90 days. Deletion is permanent: deleted messages and files cannot be restored if you upgrade to paid plan later on, and deleted content won't be included in a workspace data export.
