We have made changes to the free channel limits on ThingSpeak. Free users are now able to have up to 4 ThingSpeak channels to collect sensor values and store analyzed data. Prior to this change, free users were able to create an unlimited number of data channels.

If you have any unused channels, please delete them. If you need a lot of channels for an IoT project, then you have options to buy ThingSpeak units for home, student, academic, and commercial applications (
