Just a week ago, Microsoft unveiled Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions. And now, the software giant is launching the consumer versions of its Microsoft 365 subscriptions starting today. The company has launched these subscriptions to take on the existing Office 365 consumer plans with some extra features.
Although Microsoft unveiled a different subscription plan with additional features, the existing Office subscription prices are still the same as they were before. Microsoft 365 Personal and Family plans are now available, priced at $6.99 per month for Personal (one person) and $9.99 a month for a Family (up to six people) subscription. Both of the subscriptions will allow access to Office and some new features that will be rolling out gradually in the coming months.
Although the company launched this subscription, two of the biggest additions to Microsoft 365, a Microsoft Family Safety app and Microsoft Teams for consumers, aren’t available with the launch of the subscriptions. However, the company promises to bring them soon in the coming months. Many of the Office-related improvements are live, though.
“Today is just the first step in delivering new features and value that helps us all navigate life,” says Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of modern life, search, and devices. “Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions are generally available today worldwide, with additional benefits added over time.”
With the latest subscription, Microsoft Editor, an add-on for Chrome or Edge, is also available with writing assistance and grammar corrections to help you correct any grammatical or spelling mistakes while writing on the web. In addition to this, Money in Excel will be available soon, Microsoft says. It’s a new feature that’s designed for personal finance management to make it easier to track and analyze spending in Excel.
