On July 16, 2012 at 3PM ET, Microsoft announced their new version of Microsoft Office, which was designed with Windows 8 in mind. They also launched the Office Next blog on the 13th in anticipation of the release.
Microsoft Office 13 will be available in a various offline and online versions, including a subscription service via Office 365 for internet-connected computers and tablets, and as a standard license. The Office upgrade does not only apply to consumer apps like Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but will also include upgrades for cloud services and mobile clients. Skype, which was acquired by Microsoft last year, will be integrated into Outlook.
Office 365 will come in four versions: 365 Home Premium, Office 365 Small Business Premium, Office 365 ProPlus, and Office 365 Enterprise. Unlike a standard license, Office 365 will sync across multiple computers, which means that a user’s settings will sync even if he or she is on a different computing device. Office 365 will allow users to work on any Internet-connected Windows 7 or 8 computer. Once the user closes the Office on Demand app, the programs they loaded will be removed so no one else can access it. Office 365 will be available for Mac as well, although details are scarce at this point.
“Microsoft’s announcement includes a host of great new features and additions,” says Justin Maas, community manager at fishbat, a social media agency. “Office 365 is a great new innovation that will make it much easier to work across multiple devices.”
