What's the difference between Office 365 plans and Office 2016 suites?

Office 365 plans include the complete suite of Office applications, plus other services that are enabled over the Internet, including extra cloud storage with OneDrive and Skype minutes for home use. With Office 365 you get the full, installed Office experience on PCs, Macs, tablets (including Windows, iPad, and Android) and smartphones. Office 365 plans are available as a monthly or annual subscription. With Office 365, upgrades are always included with your subscription.

Office 2016 suites, including Office Home & Student and Home & Business, include applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote; they are available as a one-time purchase 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.

Ratings and reviews

Rated 1 out of5 by fromAwful setupWhat Microsoft did with Office is beyond awful. I used Word since DOS-only versions. If a person who worked with a piece of software for 25 years and was very comfortable with various functions cannot find almost anything in the new version without spending a lot of time it means the design is utterly bad. But worst of all is the decision to not allow installation of individual programs. I do not use 2/3 of what has been installed with Office 2016 and it occupies precious expensive space on SSD drive uselessly. PLEASE REVERSE THIS AND ENABLE UNINSTALLATION of useless modules. Will have to move to Open office.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromGood featuresI purchased this about 2 weeks ago. The program works fine. I would prefer that it was actually a program that fully downloads to my computer. The look of the program is Web like which I hate. I find it strange that Microsoft would have you get a yahoo account in order to get to Flickr for Clipart. Just another issue I have with this program.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromMade things more difficult! Its not plug and play.This product had issues loading and not all features loaded without assistance from Microsoft technical support. The product did not work right out of the gate as it never disabled the older version of office first, creating a conflict for itself. It did not load Access and had no instructions on how to launch it with out a great deal of technical effort. It also could not easily be located within a sub directory.There are still ongoing issues, such as Excel files will not launch by clicking on the file without having opened Excel first. In the previous versions you could just select the file name and it would do all the launching to open Excel and the desired file would open up. I am sure its another "setup issue" somewhere, but Microsoft cannot assume we are all software engineers to be able to fix all of the individual issues that are created with this new version. I still have not yet checked out all the features that should be present to insure no more hidden issues. That's a drag that i feel I have to do that before I need that feature and get a gotcha and have to fix something before I can use it. The last item I wish to mention, is that after having used Word and Excel so far under this version, I have yet to see the benefits of upgrading. It is not apparent to me yet.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWorst upgrade ever!Upgraded from 2007 to 2016 and found out I lost the Pivot table and Pivot charts from Access.Now I have to redesign all my databases to import the pivot tables from excel and they don't refresh the data unless you refresh excel.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromLove the applications, but system date troublesAfter registering the software I took my new desktop offline, as I don't risk exposing my files to the Internet. I did a lot of work in Access, Publisher and Excel over three weeks. Then Monday I found the system date changed to July 10 10:00PM (on July 18 about 5:00PM). I found that Windows 10 was set by default to update the time automatically, which it cannot do offline. I changed the settings to manually set date/time. When I opened Access and Publisher I found that recent documents could not be found. Fortunately I had backed up my files on a USB drive and could launch the applications by opening the files. But the applications' lists of recent files contained files that could not be found. And in Access, queries containing VBA functions would not run from backup copies of the database even though the modules containing the functions were present and up to date. I think Microsoft needs to do more testing of Windows 10 and Office 2016 on computers that are not continuously connected to the Internet.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromReplacing older versionThe new version is improvement over the 2003 set. It interfaces with the old files -including Word, Excell, PowerPoint and other graphics- without problems. I am completely satisfied so far.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWhat happened to other programs?What happened to InfoPath and Groove? This is all Microsoft has to offer us? Open Office gives you so much more for nothing.This is how Microsoft plans to compete against free office programs?
