It is most evident that you have needed a Microsoft Word document, a PowerPoint presentation, or other tools from Microsoft 365 at some point, whether you needed it for school work or personal use. Regardless of how much Microsoft software seems like a necessity, its high price range trunks people down to the other way.


Microsoft’s suite of service software, which contains Excel, Microsoft teams, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, SharePoint, and OneDrive, costs $150 just for one-time installation (as Office 365), or it goes between $70 and $100 every year for subscription access across family members and devices. Microsoft also released a new stand-alone version of Microsoft Office for Mac and Windows. And this is for a flat price without needing any subscription plan, which was released on Oct 5. The same day Windows 11 began its rollout mission.

So, without wasting any more time, let’s check out the versions of Office 365 and Microsoft 365. These versions are available online and are accessible right now without any subscription requirement.
