Microsoft 365 for Consumers is now rolling out to general users. Some features that are part of Microsoft 365, such as Microsoft Editor, were already available to Office 365 subscribers, but the new branding kicks in today. Microsoft 365 brings all of the same features and services as Office 365 but adds new functionality that will continue to grow going forward.
While Microsoft 365 adds new features and will get people access to other services and features as they come out, its priced identically to Office 365. Microsoft 365 Personal costs $70/year and Microsoft 365 Family costs $100 per year. Microsoft 365 Family allows you to share the subscription with five other people and includes 6TB of cloud storage.
If you already have an Office 365 subscription, it will automatically turn into a Microsoft 365 plan. If you don't have a subscription, you can sign up for one through Microsoft's website.
The change to Microsoft 365 branding officially happens today, but Microsoft started rolling out some of its features as soon as it was announced. Microsoft Editor was already available to Office 365 customers, for example.
Over time, Microsoft 365 will have many new features, including Microsoft Editor, Money in Excel, PowerPoint Presenter Coach, and the consumer version of Microsoft Teams. We break down all of the new features in our guide on Microsoft 365.
