Calm meditation app introduces new family plan with six accounts – TechCrunch

Popular meditation app Calm introduces a new “Premium Family” subscription plan that includes up to six accounts. The new offering is now available worldwide for $99.99 per year, while a premium individual plan costs $69.99 per year.

Everyone in the plan will have their own personal account where they can track their progress, celebrate their personal milestones, and select their favorite meditations and sleep stories. The company says family plan members don’t need to live in the same household, which is sometimes the case for family subscription plans offered by apps.

Current Calm users can upgrade to the new subscription without losing their saved favorites, downloads, or session history. Each member gets their own Calm account and logs into their account using their own email address and password. Calm states that session history, statistics, recordings, and other personal information related to a Calm account are not shared between members of the Calm Premium family.

Premium Family Membership includes Calm’s entire content library which includes sleep stories, gratitude and mood checks, guided meditations, soothing nature sounds, lullabies and sleep stories for kids , peak performance masterclasses and exclusive music for focus, relaxation, and sleep.

It should be noted that Calm competitor Headspace has also offers a family plan with six accounts for $99.99 per year. However, his family plan requires all group members to enter the same physical address during registration to prove that they all reside in the same household. The subscription plan offers full access to Headspace’s library, including relationship meditations, Headspace for Kids, and exercises designed to bring mindfulness to family activities.

Calm, along with other meditation apps, has performed well during the ongoing pandemic and seen an increase in users. Last year, Calm raised $75 million in Series C funding, bringing the company’s valuation to $2 billion. Former investor Lightspeed Venture Partners led the round, which also saw participation from Insight, TPG and Salesforce CEO and new Slack owner Marc Benioff, among others.
