Microsoft Rebrands Office 365 to “Microsoft 365”

In a move that must have been in the works for months but feels like a nod to closed offices around the world, Microsoft has rebranded its Office 365 subscriptions to “Microsoft 365.” The company has been using the name as a licensing bundle for enterprise customers since 2017, but as of 21 April 2020, it now applies to the company’s home and business offerings as well. Microsoft describes Microsoft 365 as “an integrated set of apps and services that puts AI and other cutting-edge innovations to work for you.” Practically speaking, it’s just a new name that helps simplify an awkward collection of product plans and better reflects what the subscription includes.

  1. Remember when Microsoft wanted to put “Office” on everything ?

  2. I do indeed. They went through similar phases of putting ‘Windows’ and ‘Live’ on various products and services too, as I recall.

  3. BTW, did anyone notice the excessively busy and futzy MS Office icons? They keep redesigning them and they keep getting worse.
