With its portfolio of tools and services aimed at being productive from home growing, Microsoft launched a home & family resources site (opens in new tab) to help you find the right tools for you.

The home & family resources site is split into three sections, connect & play, learn, and work. Each section lists tools you can use to be more productive from home and links you to any relevant services.

The connect & play section discusses Skype, coloring books, a link to the games section of the Microsoft Store, and many other resources. It also discusses keeping peoples safe online and managing screen time for your family.

The learn section links to several tools to help families learn, including free learning experiences for kids ages 3-12, tools to improve handwriting, and other tools for online learning.

The work section discusses Microsoft Teams, how to share files through OneDrive, using your browser to be productive, and Office 365 for Business.

Microsoft has a wide range of tools and services geared towards working from anywhere, including your home. Finding them all is a bit easier now for individuals, parents, and employees looking to get things done from their home. You can check out the website (opens in new tab) now.
