An
evolution of Office 365, Microsoft 365 builds on the foundation of Office 365,
infusing new artificial intelligence (AI), rich content and templates, and
cloud-powered experiences to empower people to become better writers, presenters,
designers and finance managers, as well as deepen people connections. These
experiences start rolling out today and will reach over 38 million Office 365
subscribers over the next few months.

 

Now more than ever, as many of us work and learn
remotely, we are acutely aware of all the different ways life can
interrupt work and work can interrupt life. It’s never been more important to
stay connected and on top of the things that matter. Today,
we offer a powerful set of free applications and services that help users create,
share, connect, and collaborate with their friends and family across the web
and on Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android devices. Used by more than a half
billion people, free Office, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Skype, Outlook, OneNote,
and OneDrive apps enables people to co-author, video chat, organize, and come
together. We are committed to improving and innovating on these experiences
every day,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President, Windows and Devices
Group.

In
addition, Microsoft today unveiled two new Microsoft 365 experiences that will be
available for preview in the coming months. Firstly, a new Microsoft Family
Safety app
designed to keep families safe across the digital and physical
worlds. Next, to provide one application to help manage work and life and deepen
connections with those who matter most, Microsoft also previewed new features
coming to Microsoft Teams for users’ personal life today. With these new
features, users can connect, stay organized, and collaborate with family and
friends. They will be able to connect in group chats, make video calls,
collaborate over shared to-do lists, assign tasks to specific people and coordinate
schedules, as well as share photos and videos all in one place.
