Previously, Microsoft limited Home subscribers to 10 devices across five users and Personal subscribers were limited to one PC or Mac and one tablet. Recognizing that it’s commonplace for users to have multiple tech devices and that shared connectivity is important for households, starting on Oct. 2, subscribers can install Office on an unlimited number of devices — and users can be signed into their accounts on up to five of those devices at the same time, the company stated in a blog post.
Microsoft also made a big move in making its software more cost-effective and valuable for its users as the tech giant increased the number of licenses in a Home subscription from five to six but maintained the cost of the annual service fee at $99.99 per year.
Subscribers benefit from the suite of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote, and PC users will be able to use Publisher and Access. Rolled into the plans is one hour of Skype time and 1 TB of storage on OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage.
