A simpler, better minutes formula

We use a simpler formula to count minutes, compared to other live video providers. In the formulas below, N = the number of participants who joined the call

Daily.co API formula

N * minutes = participant-minutes

Our formula is: the number of participants (N) multiplied by the meeting length.

Other API providers

N * (N-1) * minutes = subscribed-minutes

The subscriber formula other providers use is factorial. It's not just participants multipled by minutes. Instead, there's an additional component, N-1. It's an extra calculation that adds costs.

See our pricing blog post

We wrote a blog post to make our pricing as clear as possible. (We're glad to chat, but you don't have to talk to sales.)
