Facebook Workplace will no longer be Free from Starting February 2021
Facebook has come up with rather a surprising announcement of removing its Workspace free access option. Perhaps it was initially made available for free in order to increase the number of users on the platform and make it popular.
According to Facebook, this step is taken to maintain a high-quality product experience as the number of users has grown using the product. Workplace Essential will no longer be free as of February 2021.
Amid COVID-19, when a lot of businesses were struggling to keep up with remote workers, Workplace saw the ratio growing up from three million users in October 2019 to five million on May 2929. The collaboration product has video chat rooms, groups, and many other features aimed to make the working environment as close to the physical working environment.
Facebook is going to ask all of the businesses who have subscribed to the Essential plan to upgrade to the paid option. If any existing business decides to upgrade their plan before the deadline, Facebook will unveil additional features such as Live Chat, Insights, and Single-Sign-On.
