Changes to Mote's Free Tier
To ensure that Mote can sustain the investment needed to meet the needs of our growing community, we have made the tough decision to limit our Free tier usage to 20 voice messages per month, from January 2022.
We believe that our Free tier still offers incredible benefits for users - see more details in the FAQ below. 👇
Changes to Mote's Essential Tier
Back in August 2021, we stopped offering the Essential tier for sale to new subscribers. We made this change in order to simplify our product offering and focus on making a single, high quality premium tier of service - Unlimited.
We are now taking steps to remove the Essential tier completely. As of December 2 2021, individual Essential subscribers are upgraded to Unlimited, for free, until the time of their subscription renewal. At that time they will have the option to subscribing to Mote's Unlimited tier, or canceling their subscription. Essential subscribers can cancel at any time between now and their renewal date by visiting their Account page.
