  • Office 365 mutates into Microsoft 365

    Posted on March 30th, 2020 at 13:06 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    There’s a whole lotta chaff flying around — and we haven’t yet played with The Real Thing — but here are the basics of Microsoft’s announcement earlier today:

    New Office features start rolling out to Office 365 subscribers today.

    Microsoft 365 Personal (one person, $70/yr) and Microsoft 365 Family (up to 6 people, $100/yr) available on April 21.

    If you’re an Office 365 renter, er, subscriber, you’ll become a Microsoft 365 renter automatically.

    Microsoft has a lengthy official list of new features here.

    Office 365 Business Essentials is now Microsoft 365 Business Basic

    Office 365 Business Premium is now Microsoft 365 Business Standard

    Microsoft 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Business Premium

    Office 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Apps for Business

    Office 365 ProPlus is now Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise

    Expect to see lots and lots (and lots and lots) of articles about the new features shortly. Remains to be seen how many will be useful for you.

    Mary Jo Foley has an excellent roundup on ZDNet.
