Office 365 changing to Microsoft 365

Office 365 is Changing to Microsoft 365

Office 365 is changing to Microsoft 365 beginning April 21st 2020. This change reflects merely a new name for the same value and price of the products, apps, features and services. According to Microsoft the need to changing product name is to reflect the range of features and benefits in the subscription.

Additionally, Microsoft is “looking for ways to simplify. This new approach to naming our products is designed to help you quickly find the plan you need and get back to your business.”

This is particularly true as often Office 365 is confusing and called after other Microsoft online products e.g Office 365 as Microsoft Office 365. Below are the name changes from Office 365 to Microsoft 365.

Office 365 Business Essentials is now Microsoft 365 Business Basic

Office 365 Business Premium is now Microsoft 365 Business Standard

Microsoft 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Business Premium
