A consumer version of Microsoft 365 could arrive in 2020 according to a new report from Mary Jo Foley on ZDNet. According to the report, Microsoft originally planned to announce a consumer version of Microsoft 365 at Build 2019, but decided to push it back until Spring of 2020. A consumer version of Microsoft 365 could include Office 365 and several other Microsoft services.
According to Foley, the consumer version of Microsoft 365 will be branded as Microsoft 365 Life and will "largely be a rebrand of the existing Office 365 Personal and Home products." Foley also expects the subscription's pricing to line up with that of Office 365.
The current versions of Microsoft 365 include Windows 10 Enterprise, Office 365, and Enterprise Mobility and Security. It's unknown which Microsoft services would be included in Microsoft 365 Life. Foley reported that game streaming will not be part of the bundle but that a password manager and other core productivity tools could be included.
