What’s the difference between Microsoft 365 subscription plans and Office as a one-time purchase?
With Microsoft 365 subscription plans you get the premium Office applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access (Publisher and Access are available on PC only). In addition, you get 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage, advanced security features, support from Microsoft experts, and more. You can install Microsoft 365 across multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, Android™ tablets, Android phones, iPad® and iPhone®. When you have an active Microsoft 365 subscription, you always have the most up-to-date version of the Office applications.
Office 2021 is a one-time purchase that includes classic applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint for use on a single PC or Mac. The applications are not automatically updated; to get the latest version, you must purchase Office again when the new version becomes available. Current Office application versions available for one-time purchase are Office 2021. Previous versions include Office 2016, Office 2013, Office 2011 for Mac, Office 2010, Office 2007, Office 2008 for Mac and Office 2004 for Mac. Office 2010 and Office 2007 are compatible with Windows 8.1 and earlier. Office as a one-time purchase does not include any of the services included in Microsoft 365.
To install Microsoft 365 or Office as a one-time purchase, visit accounts.microsoft.com on the PC or Mac that you want to install Office on. Sign in with the Microsoft account that you used to purchase, or have already associated with the subscription or one-time purchase product, and then follow the on-screen instructions to install Office.
