If you’re undecided as to whether or not you should get Office 365 Home Premium. Then perhaps knowing what its best features are will help you decide on what’s right. There are several advantages to getting Office 365 instead of just Office 2013. If you read on, you will know how you can benefit from this MS subscription service.
First, you get instant activation on your PC or device. The 5 PC device is a lot more flexible than you think. You can deactivate Office 2013 from any PC or device and transfer it to another. If the suite has been deactivated on a certain PC, you can still read documents but you may not save, edit or work on Office docs anymore.
Second, you get extra storage on OneDrive. When you sign up for Office 365 Home Premium, this is done with a Microsoft Account. So it is just as if you were signing on with a Windows 8 with your Microsoft account. The account you will be utilizing will give you an additional 20GB of OneDrive storage for your subscription.
Office 365 also allows your family members to sign in with their own account on Microsoft and be able to customize their accounts. Just because you have installed Office 2013 for everyone does not mean, they cannot experience the MS platform individually. You can still adjust and create your own settings and log on to OneDrive on your own among others. Skype world minutes is another advantage of the Office 365 subscription. You can sign into skype using the same MS account and you get 60 free Skype world calling minutes a month. This will allow you to contact any mobile, landline or PC with Skype calls capabilities in the planet.
Microsoft also provides upgrades for products in a much faster pace this time. Perhaps quarterly is the minimum time table. You will get these upgrades for free just as long as you are subscribed. By the time Office 2016 ships, you will receive it – but as long as the subscription is active, you will receive many other upgrades in between. You may not get this if you simply install an Office 2013 Home and Student for instance.
Of course, this all depends on your needs. With Office 365, you may not be able to buy additional licenses. You may need to purchase another subscription using another account from Microsoft. If you find, however, that Office 365 HomePremium is the most economical choice, then why not go for it?
