Office 365 recently got more personal—and less expensive.

Office 365 Personal, which is now available, offers a low-cost option for individual users who want the flexibility of having our cloud-based productivity suite for home use on one PC and one tablet at a very affordable price. By adding Office 365 Personal to Office 365 Home, Office for the iPad, and all of the Office 365 options for business, we’ve made sure that there is a perfect Office 365 solution for every user.

We also made Office Online better than ever, with improvements to Word Online and Excel Online as well as other new features and updates. For example, we added Tell Me to Excel Online, improved performance and text editing in PowerPoint Online, and introduced one-click printing in OneNote Online. We even made the free Office Online apps available in the Chrome Web Store, to make them more easily accessible to a wider range of users.
