Choosing Between Microsoft Office 365 and Office 2016
Today, there are two simple ways for you to take advantage of Microsoft Office when buying from Microsoft Store. Office 365 is the annual or monthly renewal service that gives you the most up-to-date version of Office, while Office 2016 will offer you a single installation of the Office applications without any updates.
With this service, you'll always have the latest versions of the Office applications. These are fully featured versions that you can install on your devices and use both on and offline. You'll also receive exclusive upgrades and new features available only to Office 365 customers. And only Office 365 offers a plan that will allow you to install Office on multiple devices. It avails one terabyte of cloud storage for photos, videos, and documents. That's about 3000 pictures or one million documents that you can access from nearly anywhere on any device.
Finally, Office 365 provides you with an online account page that allows you to manage all of its features easily. This includes managing your installs, sharing your benefits, and updating your payment info. You can access this page anytime by signing into Office. If Office 365 sounds right for you, you can choose between Home and Personal. Office 365 Home will give you multiple installs on five PCs or Macs, five tablets, and five phones. This version will allow you to share your benefits with up to four additional people, giving each user one terabyte of One Drive cloud storage.
If you don't need Office on multiple machines and aren't looking to take advantage of the popular features of Office, then you can buy Office 2016 as a one time package. You can choose from three different options to get a single installation of Office depending on your device and application needs. Home And Student and Home And Business are available for both Windows PCs and Macs, and Professional is available only for Windows PCs.
