A subscription-based office suite
Microsoft Office is the most well-known software suite for productivity. For a fairly low monthly subscription fee, Microsoft 365 offers its software bundled together with access to the cloud.
A personal or business solution
From basic starter (which has limited features) to Microsoft 365, Office is available to offer everything you could ever want in a home or business computer suite of programs.
If you have ever used a computer, you have most certainly heard the words Microsoft Office. Names like Word, Excel, Outlook, and Powerpoint are equal to computer productivity.
From basic starter (which has limited features) to Microsoft 365, Office is available to offer everything you could ever want in a home or business computer suite of programs. For a low monthly subscription fee, users can install Microsoft 365 on up to five devices, which can include your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Microsoft 365 includes the main programs you’d find in Microsoft Office, as well as OneDrive and Skype. Previously, Skype used to be a standalone product that required a fee to access higher functions.
OneDrive is your doorway to the cloud. Store up to a whopping 1TB of data for all your documents and spreadsheets. With your files in the cloud, enjoy complete access anytime you like on any of your devices.
All productivity software require updates. With Microsoft 365 you’ll stay up to date as updates get installed as soon as they’re released. Microsoft will support you. You can contact Microsoft at any time via email, online chat, or to speak to a real person, call the contact center.
Where can you run this program?
Microsoft 365 runs on Windows 10, MacOS, Android, and iOS.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes, there is. Even though Microsoft Office is the grand-daddy of computer productivity, Google programs available via Google Chrome are free and rapidly becoming just as popular. Why pay for software access when you can get another suite of almost identical programs at no cost?
For everyday users of the Microsoft Office suite, this is a must-have. The ability to share it across five devices is a compelling reason why you need it. It’s also the most convenient way to make sure you have the latest version of any of the Office products.
Should you download it?
Yes, you should, if you don’t mind dropping some cash. If you want access to all the Microsoft Office programs, including Skype and cloud, then Microsoft 365 is the right choice for you.
