Q:    What is the difference between Office 2019 (one-time purchase) and Microsoft 365 (subscription)?

A:      Office 2019 is sold as a one-time purchase, which means you pay a single, up-front cost to get Office apps for one computer. One-time purchases are available for both PCs and Macs.

However, there are no upgrade options which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you’ll have to buy a new license at full price.

Microsoft 365:

  • is acquired on a subscription basis. This includes the most collaborative, up-to-date features in one seamless, integrated experience
  • includes the robust Office desktop apps like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. You also get extra online storage (1 Terabyte per user to be more precise) and cloud-connected features that let you collaborate on files in real time.

With a subscription, you will always have the latest features, fixes, and security updates along with ongoing tech support at no extra cost.

You can choose to pay for your subscription on a monthly or yearly basis, and the Microsoft 365 Family plan lets you:

  • share your subscription with your family for up to 6 people
  • use your apps on multiple PCs, Macs, tablets, and phones

Q: Do I keep control of my documents with a Microsoft 365 subscription?

A:      Yes. Documents that you have created belong to you. No one else has any rights to those documents unless you grant them such rights. You can choose to store your documents online on OneDrive or locally (PC or Mac).
