To download Microsoft Office 365 Home / Personal edition

One of my friends told me that he would like to download latest Microsoft office application suite and looking for some guidance on it. It was obvious that he wasn’t aware of Microsoft Office 365 application suite.

There are two editions for home use: Office365 Personal and Office 365 home. Both versions are free to try for a month. After trial period is over, users will have to pay subscription fees (can be paid monthly or yearly) User can cancel subscription at any time. There are other versions available for students and businesses.

Next question is, whether to buy Home edition or Personal edition? Well, Home edition will cover 5 PCs or Macs, 5 Tablets and 5 Phones, Online versions of office applications like Word, Excel, PowerPpoint and OneNote, 1 TB online storage each for up to 5 users, Skype – 60 Minutes/month for up to 5 users each and many more. In Personal edition, one gets same benefits as Home edition but it is limited for 1 user only. One should consider on how many PCs/Tablets/Phones they would like to install Office application and how many users will be using it?

To download new Office 365 Home or Personal edition, click on following link:


I am sure, I will be asked if there are any free alternatives to Microsoft Office application suite. I will answer that in my next blog. I hope you find this information very useful.
