This changelog only applies if you participated in the beta program for Codespaces for Individuals.
Today marks the start of the rollout of Codespaces for Free and Pro accounts, and thus the end of the beta for Individuals. Unfortunately, this also ends unlimited free use of Codespaces.
The good news is that this marks the beginning of much broader collaboration with more people who can now take advantage of included free compute and storage. All Free and Pro GitHub accounts receive a generous amount of free included usage each month.
Note that the default spending limit for GitHub Codespaces is $0. So even if you already have a payment method configured with GitHub, you will not automatically be billed unless you change your spending limit.
The rollout will take place over several days, so these changes will affect you in the coming days. For more details see “About billing for GitHub Codespaces.”
For those who participated, a heartfelt THANK YOU for all the feedback that has been instrumental to our getting to this milestone.
We hope that you’ll continue to enjoy Codespaces, and come join us in the community discussion space to tell us your story!
