Microsoft is increasing the number of devices you can use with Office 365 Personal and Home subscriptions. Starting on October 2nd, Office 365 Personal and Home subscribers will be able to install the Office desktop apps on an unlimited number of devices. Currently, Personal users are limited to one PC or Mac and one tablet, while Home subscribers are limited to 10 devices in total across five users.

Office 365 Home is now even better value for money

Microsoft is also improving the Office 365 Home subscription to provide six licenses instead of five, meaning a family (or group of friends) can share an account for $99 per year and each get full Office apps and 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage for six users. That’s even better value than paying $69.99 per year for an individual Office 365 Personal account. Microsoft is also integrating its Office 365 Home subscription into the existing Microsoft Family service so you can automatically share this with members of your family.

All of these changes will come into affect on October 2nd, and existing Office 365 subscribers won’t need to do anything. Microsoft has 31.4 million paying Office 365 subscribers, and these changes will likely push those numbers up further as the company continues to convince consumers and businesses to move to an Office subscription.
