Anthropic has announced the launch of Claude Pro, a paid subscription plan for its AI assistant Claude. The new offering aims to provide expanded access to Claude for $20 per month in the US and UK.
Claude Pro includes 5x more usage than Anthropic’s free tier, priority access during high traffic periods, and early previews of new features. This allows power users to get more done with Claude across tasks like research summary, contract analysis, and coding projects.
This pricing makes Claude Pro competitive with other paid AI assistants on the market. However, Anthropic differentiates Claude through its focus on reasoning, judgment, and honesty.
Since the Claude AI assistant first launched in July 2022, Anthropic has received user feedback requesting more conversations over longer periods. The Claude Pro plan addresses this by increasing usage limits so subscribers can send many more messages.
The launch of Claude Pro signals Anthropic’s commitment to keep improving its AI technology while responsibly monetizing new capabilities. For power users of Claude eager to boost productivity even further, the paid Pro plan unlocks more advanced AI interaction.
