As an Office 365 subscriber, you'll always have access to the latest Office features, services, and applications.

On a Windows PC, if you have an older version of Office installed, your Office applications will be kept up to date automatically. If you’d like to verify you’re up to date, check your Office version number and manually update Office if necessary.

  • 1. Open any Office application, like Word or Excel.
  • 2. Click File > Account.
  • 3. Under Product Information, click Update Options > Update Now.

Note: If you don't see Update Now, click Enable Updates to turn on automatic updates. After that, click Update Options > Update Now. You can also visit www.office.com/myaccount to download and install Office 2016. Note you cannot have both Office 2013 and Office 2016 installed on the same PC at the same time.

On a Mac, you can install Office 2016 for Mac by visiting www.office.com/myaccount

Office 365 Home, Personal, and Business plans include the complete suite of Office applications, plus other services that are enabled over the Internet, including extra OneDrive cloud storage and Skype minutes for calling landlines and mobile phones. With Office 365 you get the full, installed Office experience on PCs, Macs, tablets (including Windows, iPad, and Android) and smartphones. Office 365 plans are available as monthly or annual subscriptions. With Office 365, upgrades are always included with your subscription.

Office 2016 suites, including Office Home & Student and Office Home & Business, include applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote; they are available as a one-time purchase for use on a single PC or Mac. The applications are not automatically updated; to get the latest version, you must purchase Office again when the new version becomes available.

Both Office 365 and Office 2016 supports PCs running Windows 7 or later, and Macs running Mac OS X 10.10. For more information, including requirements for tablets and smartphones, view full system requirements.

Internet access is required to install and activate Office 2016; however, you do not need to be connected to the Internet to use the Office applications, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, because they are fully installed on your computer.

For Office 365 subscriptions, Internet access is required to manage your subscription account, for example to install Office on other devices or to change billing options. Internet access is also required to access documents stored on OneDrive. You should also connect to the Internet regularly to keep your version of Office up to date and get automatic upgrades. If you do not connect to the Internet at least every 39 days, your applications will go into reduced functionality mode, which means that you can view or print your documents, but you won’t be able to edit documents or create new ones. To reactivate your Office applications, simply reconnect to the Internet.

Your Microsoft account is the combination of an email address and password that you use to sign in to services like Hotmail, OneDrive, Windows Phone, Xbox LIVE, and Outlook.com. If you use any of these services, you already have a Microsoft account that you can use, or you can create a new account. As part of signing up for a trial or purchasing Office online at Microsoft Store, you will be prompted to sign in with a Microsoft account. You'll use that same account to install and manage your Office software, or to use some subscription benefits, including OneDrive cloud storage and Skype world minutes.
