Will Office 365 by any other name smell as sweet?
We’re about to find out, as Microsoft is about to rebrand some of its Office 365 commercial plans as “Microsoft 365” or M365.
The change takes place on April 21, and won’t affect your subscription or pricing. You’ll also get some new benefits, including Microsoft Editor and premium creative content.
There’s no action required on your part, as the change will happen automatically. The main issue is that the name change could cause some confusion, since a few years ago “M365” was the moniker for a subscription bundle for Windows 10, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility + Security.
Why the rebrand?
Microsoft is hoping that the rebrand will signal that Office 365 is more than Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
“We changed the name to be more reflective of the range of features and benefits in the subscription, to meet the unique needs of individuals and businesses,” says Microsoft on its website. “This new approach to naming our products is designed to help you quickly find the plan you need and get back to your business.”
New features include:
Excel: Seamlessly connect your financial accounts using “Money” in Excel to view, manage, and gain insights into your personal finances.
