Microsoft has announced a new subscription plan for Office 365 which allows access from one Mac or PC and one tablet. Subscribers can download the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to one Mac (or PC) instead of the five allowed on Home Premium. They can also download and use the iPad versions of the same three apps on one tablet.
The Personal subscription is priced at £5.99/ month or £59.99/ year compared to £7.99/ month or £79.99/ year for Home Premium.
‘An Office 365 Personal subscription allows for one PC or Mac, and one tablet (including iPad) to be connected to the service, and is the best option for individuals interested in using Office 365,’ said Microsoft in a blog post. ‘By offering Office 365 Personal, in addition to Office 365 Home, we are better positioned to deliver the right Office to a broader range of households–whether it’s an individual or a family of five.’
