At last week’s SharePoint Conference, we discussed Office 365 for business investments and got some outstanding feedback from customers. Now it’s time for a few updates for our consumer customers using Office 365 – 3.5 million subscribers and counting.
Today I want to announce Office 365 Personal. Coming this Spring, Office 365 Personal is a new, great option for people interested in using Office 365. It’s designed for an individual, allows for one PC or Mac and one tablet to be connected to the service and will be available for $69.99 USD/year or $6.99 USD/ month (ERP)1. We recognize that there are households of all shapes and sizes and we’re committed to delivering the right Office for everyone – whether that be one person or an entire household.
Additionally, we’ll continue to offer our Office 365 Home Premium subscription for households, but we’ll be changing the name to Office 365 Home. You’ll see this change when Office 365 Personal becomes available. Whichever Office 365 subscription you choose, you’ll get all of the subscription benefits including 60 minutes of Skype calling per month, 20 GB of additional OneDrive storage and always be up to date with the most recent version of Office.
We’re committed to delivering a great Office experience to all of our customers and believe that giving you a choice about the Office 365 subscription that fits your unique needs is one way we can do that. We’ll have more details to share closer to availability.
