Anthropic, the AI company backed by Google, has launched a paid version of its Claude chatbot in the US and UK. The new Claude Pro option is priced at $20 (or £18) per month and offers several benefits to heavy users. Here are some key takeaways from the announcement:
Benefits of Claude Pro:
- Priority access when the bot is busy
- Early access to new features
- Ability to send more messages
The main draw is that users will get five times more usage with Claude Pro when compared to the free tier, which means they can send more messages in a shorter period of time. Anthropic says the typical user will get at least 100 messages every eight hours depending on Claude’s capacity. The company says it will warn users when they have 10 messages remaining, with its limits resetting every eight hours.
Anthropic’s new Claude Pro offering puts it on track to compete with other AI chatbot providers. OpenAI’s ChatGPT Plus plan is priced at $20 per month and offers similar features to Claude Pro. Poe, a Quora-owned hub for AI chatbots, also offers a $20 per month paid plan. Microsoft recently launched an enterprise version of Bing Chat with increased privacy for businesses.
