Pricing FAQ

When are the Descript Pro and Descript Creator plans being launched?  

Descript Pro and Descript Creator launched on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. Beginning on this date, all new Descript users can choose between Free, Creator, Pro and Enterprise for their plan type.

Beginning on this date all existing users have the option to upgrade their plan type to Pro. Existing Free users can upgrade their accounts to Creator or Pro. Existing Producer and Team users will be automatically migrated into a Creator account on Monday, August 3, 2020.

My Descript Producer plan is turning into a Descript Creator plan. How does that affect me?

Your Producer plan will automatically migrate into a Creator plan on Monday, August 3, 2020. Your monthly or annual subscription fee will not change. 

Unlike with your previous plan, which did not include collaborative features, Descript Creator allows you to add (or remove) additional team members to your Descript drive for $12/mo (billed annually) / $15/mo (billed monthly).

My Descript Team plan is turning into a Descript Creator plan. How does that affect me?

Your Team plan will automatically migrate into a Creator plan on Monday, August 3, 2020. Your next invoice* after this date will reflect a price decrease to $12/mo (billed annually) / $15/mo (billed monthly). You will maintain access to the same feature set you had in your Team plan and you will be able to add additional team members to your Descript drive at the Creator subscription price points detailed above. 

*You can view your invoices on the Invoice Details page of your Settings dashboard. 

Can I try Descript Pro features like Overdub before committing to a Descript Pro subscription?

Yes! Descript Pro comes with a free 7-day trial, so you’ll have plenty of time to create an Overdub voice, make some custom Audiograms, and experience the power of advanced filler word detection before committing to Pro. 

What if I upgrade to a Pro account but then decide I don’t need the additional features?

No problem - you can cancel your Pro subscription within 7 days with no charge.

Can I purchase additional transcription hours?

By default, the Descript Creator subscription includes a monthly transcription rate limit of 10 hours per user. The Descript Pro subscription includes a monthly transcription rate limit of 30 hours per user. This helps us moderate demand and ensure a fast turnaround for everyone.

If you’re looking for a permanent change to your monthly hours, you can increase your transcription rate limit at $2 / hour: here

If you need a set amount of hours added to a given month for a backlog of work coming through the pipeline, submit a request here and we can add hours as a one-time boost to your account at a rate of $2.50 / hr.

Do I need to enter a credit card to try Descript?

No, Descript's Free plan includes everything you need to record, transcribe, edit and mix audio and video content. If you'd like to continue transcribing after using the 3 trial hours, you can upgrade to a paid plan and receive up to 30 hours of automatic transcription each month.

Descript Pro includes a free 7-day trial. 

Do you offer special rates for students, educators, and non-profits?

Yes, fill out this form.

How does Descript protect my privacy?

Your Project Information is confidential, even from Descript. We have taken measures to comply with SOC 2 certification and expect to be formally certified by the end of 2020. Read more about Descript Security.

How do I cancel my subscription?

You can easily cancel your subscription from your Descript subscription page. You can also delete your account and permanently wipe your data from our servers
