Free seats (or Basic seats) always have the ability to view and collaborate on content, regardless of whether their workspace is on the Basic, Starter, Business or Enterprise plan. Free seats also have the ability to add a small number of their own new recordings in the workspace until they run out of this allocation.
Paid seats have the ability to add unlimited new recordings to the workspace and can perform advanced creative actions like downloading transcripts or making new Collections (folders) or Stories (highlight reels), among other things.
When at least one member of a workspace is upgraded to a Paid seat, all members of the workspace may view and collaborate on all of those members recordings. When a free member runs out of their trial recording allocation, they must delete old recordings for themselves or anyone in the workspace to gain access to the free user's meetings. Read more here.
