The Office 2016 is the new release of the Office Desktops for both Windows and Mac OS for the first synchronisation of both operating systems.
While you can buy Office 2016 for a one-time fee that gives you a license that you can use for as long as you want, for Windows or the Mac, when the next release of Office comes out, you'll have to buy it again to get it, and you won't get the new functionality that comes out for the various Office apps before the next release - just the safety up-dates.
Office 2016 on the Mac comes with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote - if you want Outlook for the Mac, you need to purchase an Office 365 plan (which also offers you the Windows Publisher and Access 2016 versions). In Windows, you can select between Office Home and Student 2016, which in turn contains Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, or Office Home and Office 2016, which will add Outlook.
This is what you need if you want to use Office for your work in a legal way. To take advantage of the additional business capabilities in Outlook and Excel, such as importing information from a large number of existing database systems, you need Office Professional 2016, which contains Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access.
Both Visio and Project are part of the Office suite and there are Office 2016 releases of both, but you buy them later. When you have Office 2013 releases, you can't just keep using them because they won't work after you have installed Office 2016 - but you can turn to Microsoft for a free update.
If you have the stand-alone editions and purchased a copy of Office 2016 that does not update it for you, you can also get a free update for Outlook, Publisher, or Access 2013. Originally Microsoft's online business e-mail, communication and data share solution for the enterprise in the clouds, Office 365 was licensed for office applications, but now it covers all Microsoft Office subscriptions for both home and business users.
They can be paid for on a month or year basis, they get new functionality when they are published and the next release of Office when it comes out, and when you use the portable copy of Office on a machine with a display larger than 10. You' ll get clouds of memory and other advantages, but if you stop purchasing your account, you won't be able to use Office.
If you have more than one computer at work and at home, if your home has more than one computer, or if you want to move between a Mac and a computer, Office 365 is the perfect solution, because even home subscription covers it. Office 365 Personal and Office 365 Home offer you the same software: the Windows or Mac editions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook, as well as Publisher and Access for Window, along with 1TB of OneDrive storage and 60-minute Skype calling credit per month.
But with Office 365 Home, you can use the same application on five Macs or computers and five trays and mobile devices - you can use all installations yourself or even split them with your friend or relative (who gets 1TB of cloudspace and Skype Credit each).
Two Office 365 business plans with up to 300 subscribers are still available for monthly payment. Both Office 365 Business and Office 365 Business Premium contain Office 2016 - the Windows or Mac editions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook and Publisher, and anyone can install them on up to five PC or Macs - the Office applications on five telephones and 5 tables per seat and 1 Tbyte of OneDrive for Business SAN.
There is a significant gap between the Business Premium plan and Exchange, SharePoint and Skype for Business Online. Bigger companies want the Office 365 business plan, which includes more safety and information managment features and for which you have to spend a year. Included in both is Office 2016 - the Windows or Mac editions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access on up to five PC or Macs per users, and Office applications on five telephones and Tablet per use.
Office 365 ProPlus has 1TB of OneDrive for Buisness space per users; an Office 365 ProPlus has all that plus Exchange, SharePoint and Skype for Bizness Online. Office 365 corporate subscription also includes Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Enterprises only, not Office 2016, for businesses that already have Office licenses or use Office Online web applications instead.
This is Office 365 Business Essentials for up to 300 employees and the Business Essentials for large enterprises. Free web editions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote do not have all the functionality of Office 2016 apps, and there will be some complicated files that you can't open with them, but they do have enough utilities for daily work.
Now PowerPoint Online has added the Form Factorizer. Often, new utilities appear first in Office Online, such as the Tell Me Find feature, which will help you find out what you can use for a particular job; that is now in Office 2016. Sway Web is very similar to Windows and iPhone platforms.
Office Online applications also store your files so you don't loose everything you entered when you disconnect from the web. Anybody with a Microsoft Online user can use Office Online, and your files are stored in OneDrive (you can synchronize them with your computer or separately fetch them).
Office 365 Office 365 Office customers also have full control over Office Online applications, but can view their Office 365 Office applications directly in OneDrive for Busines. Organizations running their own Office server, such as Exchange and SharePoint, can use the Office Online server to run their own copy of Office Online (prior to Office 2016, which was known as the Office Web Applications Server).
OutOutlook Web Access (which Microsoft calls Outlook confusing because it has the same functions and the same user interfaces as Outlook itself) is not part of Office Online. This is because it is actually part of Exchange, so you can get it either by operating your own Exchange servers or by using Exchange Online in the Office 365 emails containing them.
Clicking the Mail, Calendar, and Persons link on Office Online takes you to Outlook Web Access when you log in with an Office 365 or to Outlook.com when you log in with a Microsoft profile.
