What is Claude?
Claude is a large language model (LLM) built by Anthropic. It’s trained to be a helpful, honest, and harmless assistant with a conversational tone.
Does Claude Pro have any usage limits?
Yes. Claude Pro offers at least 5x the usage compared to our free service. The number of messages you can send will vary based on length of message, including the length of files you attach, and length of current conversation. We will provide a warning before you have 10 messages remaining, and your message limit will reset every 8 hours.
What is the actual limit for conversations with Claude Pro?
If your conversations are relatively short (approximately 200 English sentences, assuming your sentences are around 15-20 words), you can expect to send at least 100 messages every 8 hours, often more depending on Claude’s current capacity. Over two thirds of all conversations on claude.ai (as of September 2023) have been within this length.
Your limit gets used up faster with longer conversations, notably with large attachments. For example, if you upload a copy of The Great Gatsby, you may only be able to send 20 messages in that conversation within 8 hours, as each time you send a message, Claude “re-reads” the entire conversation, including any large attachments.
Why does Claude pro have these limits?
A model as capable as Claude 2 takes a lot of powerful computers to run, especially when responding to large attachments and long conversations. We set these limits to ensure Claude can be made available to many people to try for free, while allowing power users to integrate Claude into their daily workflows.
Your Claude Pro limits are based on the total length of your conversation, combined with the number of messages you send. Please note that these limits may vary depending on Claude’s current capacity.
