Office365 gets a new name

Office365 gets a new name


Don’t worry—you don’t need to change anything. Your product services, apps, and features will stay the same, along with the price. Your subscription name will update automatically on or after April 21, 2020.

The product name changes are mostly happening for small-to-medium business users of these products. Microsoft plans to continue to use the Office 365 name for users of Office 365 for Enterprise, Office 365 for Firstline Workers, Office 365 for Education and Office 365 for Government products.

Here’s Microsoft’s plan to swap the names of the products for small-to-medium business users, which will take effect on April 21, 2020:

  • Office 365 Business Essentials will become Microsoft 365 Business Basic.
  • Office 365 Business Premium will become Microsoft 365 Business Standard.
  • Microsoft 365 Business will become Microsoft 365 Business Premium.
  • Office 365 Business and Office 365 Pro Plus will both become Microsoft 365 Apps. Where necessary we will use the “for business” and “for enterprise” labels to distinguish between the two.

The capabilities of the products aren’t changing. It’s only a change in the names, which Microsoft described as a “natural evolution.” The rationale is that the products are connected to various services and are increasingly getting artificial intelligence capabilities.
