The short answer is that there are no hidden costs, nor in-app purchases.
Generally speaking, there are certain things that have not changed: if you are invited to someone else's meeting, you can simply join through your Chrome, Edge or Safari browser without an account. There's nothing to download or install. The only action you need to take is to either click on a meeting link if you receive an emailed invitation to a given meeting (otherwise, copy the invitation link into your browser).
You will need an account if you wish to invite others to your own ROOM meeting. Sign up for ROOM at http://room3d.com/ and try our Basic plan for free.
If you like what you see and you'd like to experience ROOM with even more features and amenities, you can opt for the new Founders' plan, which starts with a 14-day, no risk trial.
- The Basic (free) plan’s features have changed to something more in line with an introductory plan including: unlimited meetings with up to 60 minutes’ duration each, choice of many unique rooms, and the ability to host up to 4 participants (3 invitees plus the meeting organizer).
- The Founders’ plan, a limited-time offer with unique amenities that will not be provided in future single-user premium plans, allows subscribers to create unlimited meetings from many unique rooms plus exclusive Founder rooms with up to 16 participants (15 invitees plus the meeting organizer), each meeting with a time limit of 24 hours’ duration.
Concerning the paid Founder’s plan, it’s important to know that, as a subscription-based service, your ROOM plan renews every month. You can cancel your subscription at any time during your plan term to cancel the auto-renewal of your subscription. Additionally, if you cancel before the end of a given month, you can continue to use ROOM with all Founder's privileges until the last day of that month.
3. The Power plan, also featured on the Plan Selection Page, is not available for immediate subscription, as it will eventually take the Founders' plan's place when its limited time offer expires. As such, its features will include unlimited meetings for up to 24 hours duration each, the ability to host up to 20 participants as well as to hide ROOM'S default branding.
4. The Pro plan, priced and demo'd upon inquiry, comprises ROOM's large organizational solution for more ambitious communication needs, offering a selection of features that includes all Pro plan benefits, as well as the ability to create custom branding for your rooms, and "Infinity rooms" - persistent meeting venues that allow you to save current progress made for the next meeting.
