An update to Polly for Slack pricing + looking ahead to 2020

Since launching pricing plans back in March 2018, we’ve learned a lot about how you integrate Polly in your daily work. From small and simple use cases to large and complex, our pricing was meant to serve all the various ways you use Polly.
