Microsoft 365 vs. Microsoft Office
There are Microsoft 365 plans for small and mid-sized businesses, large enterprises, schools, and non-profits.
Microsoft 365 plans include the familiar Office desktop apps like Word, PowerPoint and Excel. You also get extra online storage and cloud-connected features that let you collaborate on files in real time. With a subscription, you’ll always have the latest features, fixes and security updates.
Most Microsoft 365 plans for business, schools, and non-profits include the fully installed desktop apps, but Microsoft also offers basic plans with the online versions of Office, file storage, and email.
By comparison, Microsoft Office is sold as a one-time purchase, which means you pay a single, up-front cost to get Office apps for one computer. One-time purchases are available for both PCs and Macs. However, there are no upgrade options, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you’ll have to buy the next version at full price.
