As of April 21 2020, Office 365 has officially become Microsoft 365.
To start with, you may be wondering if there are any changes to your current subscriptions and costs. The good news is, no. All of your existing subscriptions will remain the same, just with a new name.
For clarity, here are the name changes to the Business Subscriptions:
Similar to when the productivity suite was called Office 365, each subscription package includes familiar applications such as Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Each subscription package will also include various levels of services such as Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams.
Microsoft 365 Business Basic, at £3.80 per user per month, was formerly referred to as Office 365 Business Essentials. This subscription offers access to the online versions of the office apps (No desktop apps); with Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams services included.
The next level of subscription is called Microsoft 365 Business Standard, this was formerly referred to as Office 365 Business Premium. This subscription is £9.40 per user per month and includes the basic office applications for the desktop as well as online; with Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams services included.
The next level of subscription is called Microsoft 365 Business Premium, which was formerly referred to as Microsoft 365 Business. This is a relatively new offering with enhanced security and protection. This subscription costs £15.10 per user per month and includes office applications for the desktop as well as online; with Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, Teams, Intune and Azure Information Protection services included.
