Microsoft officially announced today that it will fully upgrade Office 365 from April. The new name is Microsoft 365.
The Microsoft 365 consumer subscription includes two plans – Personal and Home. It will be officially launched on April 21, priced at $6.99 per month for Personal (one person) and $9.99 a month for a Family (up to six people) subscription. Both options will include access to Office, and new features will gradually roll out in the months ahead.

Gizchina News of the week
Microsoft 365 is not just the ‘renaming’ of Office 365. There are many useful add-ons, such as the new Microsoft Editor. This artificial intelligence program can handle Word, Outlook e-mail and web browsers, providing users with ways to make writing more concise, more inclusive, and more grammatical and logical suggestions.
There are also new features in PowerPoint and Excel, such as the PowerPoint presentation coaching function. If the presenter has not faced the audience for a long time, or there are too many mood words such as ‘um’ in the speech, the application will remind about them. Excel adds tracking and new services for analyzing personal expenses. Users can import data from their own bank and checking accounts.
In addition, Microsoft 365 will add two new features – Microsoft Family Safety app and new features in Microsoft Teams for consumers. The former app is designed to allow families to share their location and manage screen time across multiple devices. It’s almost identical to Apple’s Find My app.
Office 365 was still bearable. Thinking of Microsoft 365 makes me wonder if I should switch to G Suite… Maybe I should!
