Microsoft expands Office 365 with personal edition

updated 01:55 pm EDT, Thu March 13, 2014

Office Home Premium rebrands, drops 'premium' moniker

Today, Microsoft expanded its online-access Office 365 program with a new subscription option aimed at single users. The new Office 365 Personal tier is coming this spring, and allows one Windows or OS X computer along with one tablet to be connected to the Office 365 online suite of apps.

Office 365 Personal gives subscribers access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access. The new service slightly undercuts all other Office 365 offerings at $70 per year, or $7 per month.

Alongside the change is a rebranding of Office 365 Home Premium to Office 365 Home, but retaining the same price point of $100 per year or $10 per month. It features all of the same benefits of Office 365 subscription, and adds 60 minutes of Skype-to-phone calling and 20GB of additional OneDrive online storage remain in place.

    Ah cool, I had no idea I needed a subscription to use Skype for 60 minutes.

    Skype calling, as in, Skype-to-cell or Skype-to-homephone. Not Skype to Skype.
