Group Rooms

On-demand pricing

Group Rooms is metered based on the number of minutes your participants are connected to a Room, and the amount of audio and video media they receive while they are connected. Rather than charging a flat per-minute rate, pricing based on media received gives you a fair price no matter what you build.

Committed volume discounts

Committed volume pricing provides you with a significant discount - more than 70% compared to On-demand pricing - when you commit to a minimum monthly volume. You can commit to tiers of both Media Routed and Participant Connection volume, or just choose one and pay for the other at On-Demand rates. When you consume more than your committed volume, any excess usage is still billed at the discounted rated.

Contact sales to purchase committed volume.
