Frequently asked questions
What’s new in this release of Office?
The familiar Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint include new features that help you create, communicate and work even more efficiently from virtually anywhere.
In addition to updating the traditional Office suites, we’ve developed brand new subscription versions of Office for home and school, specifically designed for the way you use Office today.

What is the difference between Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?
Microsoft Office is still the name we use for our familiar productivity software.
Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. In this release all the Office 2013 suites, such as Office Home & Student 2013, include the latest versions of the Office applications, for use on a single PC.
We use the name ”Office 365” for products that include features enabled over the internet, such as additional online storage with SkyDrive or Skype world minutes for home use. Office 365 business plans include features such as Lync web conferencing and hosted email for businesses. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, Office 365 University, and Office 365 Small Business Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis. Subscription terms vary by product.
Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. Active subscribers receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.
What is SkyDrive?
SkyDrive is a service that enables you to upload files to storage in the cloud and
then access them from a computer or phone. You can use SkyDrive to store documents,
notes, photos, music, videos or other types of file.
SkyDrive simplifies sharing. You can send photos and files through email, send a
short link to them in a text message, or post them to a social network, your website,
or your blog—all right from SkyDrive.
There's also a desktop app for SkyDrive you can install that creates a folder on
your PC or Mac that automatically syncs with your cloud folder, so you can access
your files offline.
