As we enter Topia’s third year in existence, we recently performed a comprehensive review of our current product offering and pricing. We want to make sure we’re providing a robust offering for our larger customers, creators, and event producers without leaving smaller customers and communities high-and-dry.
Following the new permissioning system that launched in January, this update to world plans is the next big step in a larger evolution of the Topia architecture. It lays the foundation for us to build some really exciting new feature systems.
(1) We’re bidding farewell to the Community Plan
We’re eliminating the community plan for any new worlds created. If you already have a community world, your world, by default, will remain at that subscription level. You’ll still have access to all the same features you know and love!
And, our Free plan will still be available for new worlds!
(2) NEW! Performance Plan
Performance mode (also previously called “SFU mode”), offers an enhanced user experience in Topia. When in this mode, video streams for each guest in the world are streamed through a server which allows us to deliver higher definition video and has a more efficient bandwidth usage. Users with older devices or lower quality internet will see the biggest difference between standard and performance mode.
Performance plans start at $10/month for 5 user capacity. Additional capacity can be added for $4/user capacity per month. Think of this like a venue - you can have unlimited visitors and events during the month as long as you don’t exceed your “at once” user capacity.
(3) NEW! Standard Plan
Standard mode offers a budget-friendly option in Topia. When in this mode, video streams utilize Peer-to-Peer WebRTC to create end-to-end encrypted connections between users.
Standard plans start at $10/month for 25 user capacity. Additional capacity can be added for $1/user capacity per month. Think of this like a venue - you can have unlimited visitors and events during the month as long as you don’t exceed your “at once” user capacity.
(4) Annual Discounts 🎉

(5) Updates to our Free Plan
The free plan will have all the same features and functionality that you’ve come to know and love! However, we are adding a few limitations:
No more than 2 broadcasts at a time
No more than 1 screen share at a time
