In 2020, Microsoft announced that it would be changing the name of its Office365 subscription to Microsoft365, acknowledging that it had become more than just a work app. The office is removing most of its branding according to new updates. In the coming months,, the Office mobile app, and the Office app for Windows will become the Microsoft 365 app, with a new icon, a new look, and even more features.

Currently, you can access Microsoft's Word, excel and other apps online at, but that will soon be changed to with a new six-sided logo. The Office app will be changed in January, and it will be called Office.

The app names aren't going to change, as you'll still be using Word, excel, PowerPoint, Teams, Outlook, Clipchamp, Stream and Designer. There will be a mobile and desktop app that will act as a centralized hub for information.

For one-time purchases, the Office name will remain. It's now considered a legacy brand, so any new features will be for Microsoft365 and not Office. There are no changes to Office365 subscription plans.
