Office 365 To Be Renamed
12 April 2020
Just when you thought you had got your head around all the different versions of Microsoft Office, someone in their Marketing team thought it would be a fantastic idea to rename the products. Let’s be honest, you wouldn’t want anyone to buy the correct version for their organisation and / or family, now would you?
Here’s the official name changes:
- 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 will become Microsoft 365 Apps for business
- Office 365 ProPlus will become Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise.
Well, that’s not confusing: I can imagine some will think their products have been downgraded.
The names will be updated automatically from 21 April (National Kindergarten Day – ah yes, that makes sense…). You have been warned. Please don’t shoot us messengers.
