Whether you are a student or a small business, as a Microsoft products consumer, you have some expectations from them. In this article, we’re going to show you what can you expect from both Microsoft 365 and Office 2021.
it’s more important than ever that the tools provide the flexibility to connect and create together virtually. Microsoft wants everyone who uses Office to be able to do so, if they are using Microsoft 365, Office 2021, Office.com, or the Office mobile app, so Microsoft has incorporated many of the collaboration features already available to Microsoft 365 subscribers into Office 2021. This is why in both Microsoft 365 and Office 2021 they are including Microsoft Teams for personal use so you can engage with anyone at any time, whether it’s chat, calls, or video.
the Microsoft 365 Blog article reports that Office 2021 includes a variety of collaboration features, including real-time co-authoring, new UX, and various improvements introduced in each app. With real-time co-authoring, you can work with others on the same document at the same time. There’s no need to send extra notes or emails because everyone will be notified when a file is updated.
Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based collaboration platform with Office applications and other services that users can subscribe to based on their needs. New Microsoft 365 productivity products for consumers and small businesses are available as of Oct. 5 for purchase via Microsoft subscriptions. Microsoft 365 subscriptions give users access to “premium versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, OneDrive, Microsoft Editor, and Microsoft Family Safety for PC, Mac, and mobile,” the announcement explained. You can use Microsoft 365 Apps including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or OneNote notebooks to create your work, store those files using OneDrive, and share them securely with colleagues in Teams, where you can co-author documents, meet with your teammates, and chat or meet with people inside or outside the organisation, all in one place.
The highlight of this launch, especially given the current situation around COVID-19, is likely the announcement of Teams for consumers. For most people, remote work is the new way of working. That’s why over 115 million daily users rely on Microsoft Teams to connect and collaborate. Teams is your digital hub for teamwork, and OneDrive, your cloud storage that lets you access your files from anywhere, to work seamlessly and securely together. OneDrive runs alongside Microsoft 365 and enhances the collaborative freedom users have for their business and personal file use.
OneDrive is a cloud-based collaborative platform. It can be used on both an enterprise-scale, as well as for personal file sharing and storage. Users can use OneDrive to collaborate across work and home. Additionally, users can access robust security features, seamless backup, and access to the full Microsoft 365 suite, from any device.
OneDrive for Business is a proven product with a clearly defined goal: to offer employees and individual team members reliable cloud storage managed by their company. This leads to improved collaboration, higher productivity, and greatly decreases the risk of losing important data. It doesn’t matter whether it’s just a part of your SharePoint platform or used as a stand-alone product, OneDrive for Business is a testament to how fiercely is Microsoft ready to compete for the position of the industry leader.
