About Codespaces pricing

In May, we announced the beta release of GitHub Codespaces, a cloud development environment that lets you code from anywhere.

Thousands of users are using Codespaces to improve collaboration, onboard faster, offload compute to the cloud, and improve security. Many of our beta participants have also said they’re excited to roll out Codespaces as soon as it’s generally available.

With that in mind, we’re announcing pricing for when Codespaces reaches general availability. We hope this information will make it easy for teams to plan ahead, and get started as soon as Codespaces is generally available.

Codespaces is currently in public beta, and is free to use until that time. If you’d like to join the beta, you can request access on our signup page.
