Microsoft 365 for consumers began its rollout this week, bringing not only a new name, but new features to the fore. To cover what's new, Microsoft released a deep-dive briefing going over all of the fresh features that subscribers will eventually be able to check out, in addition to the current crop of Office apps.

The Microsoft 365 subscription carries forward the same Office apps and OneDrive storage that Office 365 subscribers already had access to, but adds in some extras that will continue to roll out to everyone in the coming weeks and months. Already, we've seen Microsoft release the Microsoft Editor extension for browsers. However, over time, Microsoft 365 consumer subscribers will get access to the consumer version of Microsoft Teams, Money in Excel, and more.
