Pricing by Monthly Active Users

Almost all video API competitors charge on a per minute per participant basis. If you have 10 people in an hour long video session, you'll be charged for 600 minutes. Those charges add up very quickly, and it's nearly impossible to forecast what your costs will be.

We decided to switch it up. We're charging on a Monthly Active User (MAU) model. This brings predictability into your costs and reduces your monthly bill dramatically. Pricing starts at $0.35/MAU and decreases based on volume.

An MAU is defined as a unique user who attended at least one meeting, with at least one other user, in the same month. To determine a unique user, we store an identifier on the device's local storage, and that will remain the same as long as the user uses the same browser and same device and doesn't clear their local cache data. Mobile is similar. An identifier remains across updates and gets removed if you delete the app.

What is the Video API?

​​​​​​​It's the most secure programmable video. Built using WebRTC open source technology, it enables developers to embed HD video into applications.

You could go away for six months to build and host your own video service from scratch, or you could use 8x8's rich API that uses highly available massively scaled global infrastructure across thousands of servers. Most competitors offer lower-level APIs, but we’ve found that we can help customers accelerate time to market by giving them an API with many of the features available programmatically out of the box for no extra charge.
