Office 365 Home

Office 365 Home has all the Microsoft applications, plus cloud services. Just sign in and you can get to your Office files, applications, and settings when you are not at home.

What’s new in this release of Office?

The 2013 versions of familiar Office applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint include new features that help you create, communicate and work efficiently from virtually anywhere. In addition to updating the traditional Office suites, Microsoft has developed brand new subscription versions of Office, specifically designed around the way customers use Office.

What is the difference between the Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?

Microsoft Office is still the name Microsoft uses for its familiar productivity software. Office suites have traditionally included applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. All Office 2013 suites include the latest versions of the applications, for use on a single PC.

Microsoft uses the name “Office 365” for products that include cloud services, such as additional SkyDrive online storage, Skype minutes for home use, Lync web conferencing or Exchange Online hosted email for businesses. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually. Active subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

What it includes:

  • Office for the entire household on up to five PCs, Windows 8 tablets, iPads, Macs and select mobile devices including iPhone.1
  • Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote,2 Publisher,2 and Access.2
  • An extra 1 TB of online storage in SkyDrive (27 GB total) for anywhere access to your documents.3
  • 60 minutes of Skype calls each month to phones in 40+ countries.5
  • One convenient annual subscription for the whole household with automatic upgrades included so you’re always up to date with the latest features and services.

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficulties downloading 21 Oct. 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:Home|Verified Purchase
I purchased MS Office 365 on 17/9/2013. Unfortunately for some reason, thought to be microsofts problem, I was unable to install the software on my laptop until 15/10/2013. I made countless phone calls to MS who promised they would 'fix it' taking hours of my time. I was told I was not the only one having the same problem but they still took nearly a month to rectify it. Now it's installed it works fine, I am just frustrated and disappointed that it took such a huge company so long to sort this out for me. Now I have to start the battle to get my whole 12 months worth of the product Ive subscribed to. Wish me luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as a Renewal Licence 18 Feb. 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:Home|Verified Purchase
Rather than pay my renewal subscription direct to Microsoft one year on, I opted to purchase this from Amazon instead as it was £15 cheaper. I waited until the day my previous licence ran out, then rather nervous that it might have made me re-download the entire package simply clicked on the link that came with my purchase acknowledgement email from Amazon and miraculously all was settled! I didn't even have to type in a new licence code or anything, it just upgraded my renewal date for a year hence. Great!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Office 2010 3 Jan. 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Edition:Home
Purchased to get over various interface problems caused by having different levels of Office on the same machine, the concept is fine and a cheap way to get up-to-date software on multiple home machines.

BUT - Microsoft have gone backwards on the user interface - the new 'clean' look is accompanied by three colour schemes white, grey (which is not quite white) and dark grey (which is light grey) - and that's it - not a colour in sight and no way of 'adjusting' it.

Add to that an obsession with social media (I really do not need photos of people sending me email), a significant waste of vertical space on the screen, particularly in Outlook, and the user interface is a significant retrograde step (see the forums at [...]

Probably the biggest missed opportunity is not to employ tabs in the products (e.g. like Firefox or IE, if you are editing multiple documents in word, having them as individual tabs - so much easier than multiple entries on the Task bar (there are aftermarket add-ons at a price that do it though).

It seems as though MS have forgotten that a large number of people still use PCs in a 'business' sense to do things, not just to browse websites and engage in social exchanges.

1.0 out of 5 stars Activation problem 15 Mar. 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:Home|Verified Purchase
Turning into a nightmare. Product key is not sent via microsoft but is lodged in the "Amazon Games and Software downloads" area. Fine, but then the product key doesnt work and have to go to Microsoft support. The Microsoft support site is a maze. I know exactly what my problem is but I have to go through their "suggestions" .. very painful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlimited cloud storage with Office as a bonus!! 21 Nov. 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:Home|Verified Purchase
I've debated going over to a subscription service for some time as opposed to buying the office package outright. What finally swayed it for me was the offer of 1Tb storage for each of (up to) 5 users. Also Microsoft have recently announced that OneDrive storage for Office 365 users will be unlimited. Ideal for backing up all my photographs.

The download and installation of the Office suite was simple and painless and only took a few minutes. As with the standalone office package you have all the regular components. It is also very easy to deactivate an installation and move it to another machine should you wish to.

You also get 60 Skype minutes per month (but I haven't used that as yet).

Microsoft offer this for about £80 per year but I found Amazon cheaper at just over £60 per year. For me this is good value for the unlimited storage and the Office software is a bonus.

Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:Home|Verified Purchase
My subscription was due to expire in a months time so I purchased this and clicked through after purchase, signed into my existing account and it added 12 months to my existing subscription. Saved money on the price I would have had to pay if I had renewed through Microsoft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Download is Very Easy No Brainer Renewal 25 May 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download| Edition:Home|Verified Purchase
I tried the download option instead of purchasing a Product key card when my Office 365 license came up for renewal.

After clicking on the purchase and confirmation buttons in Amazon I was taken directly to the Microsoft office log on screen.

After entering my Microsoft email and password the site then thought about it for a few moments after which looking down on the Office account page revealed that the renewal date has been incremented by a year.

It really was is as easy as that!

I did NOT have to download Office 365 again
I did NOT have to enter a 25 digit code
I did NOT have to click on the download link sent by Amazon

Writing this review has taken longer than the whole process of renewal.
