Microsoft is rebranding Office 365 as Microsoft 365.

Jared Spataro, CVP of modern work at Microsoft. said,

“The new Microsoft 365 app is one part of our larger strategy and focus as a company on Microsoft 365 and is reflective of the innovation we’ve strived to deliver as work and life continue to evolve.”

Microsoft revealed that in the coming months, Office.com, the Office mobile app, and the Office app for Windows will become the Microsoft 365 app. In addition to a change in branding, the company will also be changing the icon, and look and feel of the new Microsoft 365 app. It will also be adding new features to the new Microsoft 365 app.

Unlike the existing Office app, the new Microsoft 365 app won’t be limited to commercial customers. Other consumers and students will also be able to take advantage of it.

Availability of the revamped Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 branding will not disappear completely. At least not yet. The company revealed that while users will get access to apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook as a part of Microsoft 365, the company will also continue to offer one-time purchases of those apps to consumers and businesses via Office 2021 and Office LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel) plans.

The company also said that it will begin rolling out these changes to the Office app on Windows and the Office mobile app on iOS and Android in January 2023. The Company is not going to make any changes to Office 365 subscription plans.
