Office 365 refers to subscription plans that include access to Office applications plus other productivity services that are enabled over the Internet (cloud services).

  • Office 365 includes plans for use at home and for business. 
  • Office 365 plans for business include services such as Skype for Business web conferencing and Exchange Online hosted email for business, and additional online storage with OneDrive for Business.
  • Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of the latest Office applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices.
  • The fully installed applications include: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access. (Publisher and Access are available on PC only.) And you can install them across multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, Android tablets, Android phones, iPad, and iPhone.
  • When you have an active Office 365 subscription that includes the desktop version of Office, you always have the most up-to-date version of the applications.

 

Office 365 is designed to work with the latest version of Office, Office 2013, and Office 2011 for Mac.

Previous versions of Office, such as Office 2010 and Office 2007, may work with Office 365 with reduced functionality.  If you have Office 2003 or an earlier version, you will need to update to a newer version of Office in order to use Office 365; or you can subscribe to one of the many Office 365 plans that include the latest version of Office. In addition to getting the latest version of Office as part of your subscription, you will also get automatic updates, so your Office will always be up to date

Office 365 Business, Business Essentials, and Business Premium plans are available for monthly commitment payment or annual commitment payment.

  • Monthly commitment payment: You pay month by month, and you can cancel at any time.
  • Annual commitment payment: You sign up for a one-year subscription, but you can choose to pay month to month or pay for the entire year at the time you sign up.

The Office 365 Enterprise plans (including standalone Enterprise plans such as Exchange Online) and Office 365 ProPlus are available for annual commitment payment.

  • Annual commitment payment: You sign up for a one-year subscription, but you can choose to pay month to month or pay for the entire year at the time you sign up.
