Microsoft unveils new ‘Personal’ Office 365 SKU

18 Mar 14

Microsoft is adding a new Office 365 option for users, set to be released within the coming months.

Designed for an individual, Office 365 Personal allows for one PC or Mac and one tablet to be connected to the service and will be available for $69.99 USD/year or $6.99 USD/ month (ERP).

“We recognise that there are households of all shapes and sizes and we’re committed to delivering the right Office for everyone – whether that be one person or an entire household,” says Chris Schneider, Microsoft Office Blogs.

Additionally, the software giant will continue to offer its Office 365 Home Premium subscription for households, but will be changing the name to Office 365 Home, which will come into force when Office 365 Personal becomes available.

Whichever Office 365 subscription you choose, Microsoft says users will get all of the subscription benefits including 60 minutes of Skype calling per month, 20 GB of additional OneDrive storage and always be up to date with the most recent version of Office.

“We’re committed to delivering a great Office experience to all of our customers and believe that giving you a choice about the Office 365 subscription that fits your unique needs is one way we can do that,” Schneider adds.

“We’ll have more details to share closer to availability…”
