In addition to the new Office 2016, we have released Office for the iPad and iPhone and for Android phones and tablets.
Microsoft Office is still the name we use for our familiar productivity software that you install on your computer.
Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. In this release all the standalone Office 2016 suites, such as Office Home & Student 2016, include the latest versions of the Office applications, for use on a single PC.
Office 365 is simply the best way to get Office because it not only includes full versions of the familiar applications that you install on your PC, it also includes services that make the Office applications do more for you such as OneDrive cloud storage so that you can store and share your documents and access them anywhere you go. And if you have an iPad, iPhone, or Android phone or tablet you get the best experience with Office on those devices.
Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2016 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. Active subscribers receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product. Here are some examples of products that use the Office or Office 365 name:
You'll need Windows 7 or later, or Mac OS X version 10.10 or later to successfully run Office on your PC or Mac. For more information, see www.office.com/information.
Your Microsoft account is the combination of an email address and a password that you use to sign in to services like Hotmail, Skype or Skype for Business, OneDrive or OneDrive for Business, Windows Phone, Xbox LIVE, or Outlook.com. If you use an email address and password to sign in to these or other services, you already have a Microsoft account - but you can also sign up for a new account if you prefer.
With this release of Office, you must be signed in with your Microsoft account to start an Office subscription and to install and manage your Office software. You may also need to sign in with a Microsoft account when you install the latest Office 2016 suites. Please note that some subscription benefits, such as additional storage with OneDrive, are linked to the Microsoft account that is used to manage your subscription.
Any time you want to install Office on another PC or Mac, choose a new language for an installation, or make other changes to your account, simply return to www.office.com/myaccount and sign in with your Microsoft account. Remember - the Microsoft account you use to sign up for Office is the same account you'll use to manage your Office subscription.

OneDrive is a service that enables you to upload files to storage in the cloud and then access them from a computer or phone. You can use OneDrive to store documents, notes, photos, music, videos or other types of file.
OneDrive simplifies sharing. You can send photos and files through email, send a short link to them in a text message, or post them to a social network, your website, or your blog - all right from OneDrive.

Additional storage is not available during trial periods.
The additional 1 Terabyte of OneDrive storage is applied to the OneDrive account that is linked to the Microsoft account used to create the Office 365 subscription account, and the Microsoft accounts of the household members who have been added to the subscription.
To access documents stored on OneDrive, sign in to Office 365 with the Microsoft account that you used to set up your subscription. If you have shared your Office 365 Home subscription with other members of your household, they should sign in with their Microsoft account. You can also sign in to OneDrive directly at OneDrive.com.
With the OneDrive desktop app installed on your computer, your documents are available offline without any action required from you. The OneDrive desktop app creates a folder on your computer that automatically syncs documents between your OneDrive storage in the cloud and your computer, so you can work on your documents offline and be assured that they are always in sync.
If you cancel your subscription or if it expires, you can still access and download all your files by signing in to OneDrive directly using the Microsoft account you used to set up Office 365. You do lose the additional storage so you must save your files elsewhere or buy more OneDrive storage if your OneDrive account exceeds 15 GB of free storage at the time that you deactivate your Office 365 subscription.
