Last week Microsoft announced Office 365 Personal, a version of the cloud-based subscription service that will become available this spring. Microsoft Office 365 launched in July 2013 and has over 3.5 million subscribers. Office 365 Personal may help Microsoft expand their reach even further.
Microsoft Office 365 Personal will be available for around $70/year. Users can subscribe monthly for $6.99 or annually for $69.99. It will include 60 minutes of Skype calls per month, 20 GB of additional OneDrive storage, and access to the most recent versions of Office. Office 365 Personal will allow users to run Office applications on one computer (PC or Mac) as well as one tablet. It isn’t clear yet, though, whether it can be used only on a Windows tablet or can be used on an Apple or Android tablet as well. Regardless, it seems Office will be available for both iPads and Android Tablets this Spring as well, though clear details haven’t been released.
