Why has LISTENTO moved to Subscription-only?



In September 2021, LISTENTO moved to subscription-only. In this article, we explain why.



What changed?


When we moved to a subscription-only model for LISTENTO streaming (whether from the plugin or the standalone app), we introduced three subscription tiers for you to choose from, based on your needs:

– Standard (closest to our original offering, with monthly and annual plans)

– Standard Plus (with an advanced set of features including custom branding and with an increased limit of 150 listeners per account)

– Business (designed for larger teams)

Across all plans, opting for annual billing is 20% cheaper.



Why we made the change.


The reason for this was to make it as easy and price affordable to use LISTENTO as possible. The software was launched back in 2017 and has since exploded in popularity. As we’ve grown, the different types of licenses and ways to pay became unmanageable, while many of our clients were requesting automatically-renewing payments to keep uninterrupted access to the service.

The changes have made the options simpler whilst allowing us to keep the price low. This enables us to concentrate on delivering exciting new features and a stable high-quality service.


Keep an eye on our Instagram to stay up-to-date on all the improvements we’re making to our softwares.
