Vodafone is introducing its zero-rated social media passes in Germany. From 26 October, customers on a Red or Young plan can add a pass for unlimited data to use certain chat, social, music or video apps.

Already introduced in other Vodafone countries, the passes offer in Germany an answer to Deutsche Telekom's 'StreamOn' offer of zero-rated data for certain music or video services. The same as Telekom, Vodafone includes the passes in its more expensive plans, starting at EUR 34.99 for Red subscribers and EUR 22.99 for Young customers under 27. The first pass is included in the monthly subscription price, and additional passes are EUR 5 each, or EUR 10 for the video pass. Customers can change their pass on a monthly basis from January 2018.

The Chat Pass includes zero-rated data for Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Threema, Viber, Vodafone Message + and WhatsApp. The 
Social Pass covers Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. The Music Pass includes Amazon Music Unlimited, Deezer, I Love Radio, Napster, Soundcloud and Tidal. The Video Pass covers Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Sky Go, Sky Ticket, Vevo and Vodafone GigaTV. Vodafone said other app or service providers can apply to be included in the passes, subject to its terms and conditions.
