Announcing New Simplified Pricing for Programmable Video and SLA for Group Rooms


We’re excited to announce simplified pricing for Programmable Video and the addition of Twilio’s industry leading standard SLAs to Group Rooms. Group Rooms offers multi-party audio and video conferencing for up to 50 participants for web and mobile apps with no plugins required.

Want to get started with Video? Clone our sample applications on GitHub for Android, iOS (Swift, Objective-C), and JavaScript.

New Simplified On-demand Pricing

You asked for a simpler pricing model, so we built one. Estimating bandwidth when your app isn’t at scale is hard, so we’ve listened and our new on-demand pricing includes bandwidth.

  • Group Rooms (up to 50 participants) are now priced at $0.01 per participant per minute, including bandwidth.
  • (New) Small Group Rooms (up to 4 participants) are priced at $0.004 per participant per minute, including bandwidth.
  • Group Rooms Recordings are priced at $0.01 per participant per minute, including bandwidth.
  • Peer-to-peer Rooms are now priced at $0.0015 per participant per minute, including TURN relay bandwidth.

Check out the new pricing page and pricing examples to learn more.

New Pricing Activation

The new pricing is active now for all new Twilio Video customers. Existing Twilio Video customers without a contract will continue to get billed on the old pricing model until the end of January 2019. On February 1st, 2019, all Twilio Video customers will be enrolled in the new pricing unless you have a contract.

Looking for Custom Pricing?

Twilio offers significant discounts against committed monthly volume or for apps that don’t match our standard plans. Contact our sales team to learn more.

New Small Group Rooms

Small Group Rooms are priced lower than Group Rooms and support up to four simultaneous participants. You can create Small Group Rooms the same way you create Peer-to-peer or Group Rooms today – from the Room Settings console page or using the REST API.

Show us what you’ve built

Embedded, in-app voice & video is rapidly becoming a must-have capability for many applications to power in-person experiences virtually. You have made it possible to seek medical advice on-demand, find an expert tutor to sharpen your skills, conduct research interviews or collaborate on operational incidents and much more. Every day, we see your amazing applications and we’d love to meet you in-person.

Join us on October 17 and 18 in San Francisco at SIGNAL, Twilio’s annual Customer and Developer Conference, to network, learn, and meet the Programmable Video product and engineering team.

We can’t wait to see what you build with Programmable Video!
