A few weeks ago, Mary Jo Foley, a prominent journalist formedia ZDNet, revealed that Microsoft plans to launch a consumer-facing Microsoft 365 subscription plan in 2020 that covers Office 365 personal and home products, although no Windows 10 system but will cover Teams for Life (Consumer Version Teams) and Password Manager. And now it’s been revealed that the subscription service could cover Windows 10 systems, according to the latest revelations frommedia.
“We have received information from a reliable source familiar with the situation that Microsoft 365 will actually cover the consumer-facing version of Windows 10,” the report read. That doesn’t mean every PC buyer needs to make a regular monthly payment to Microsoft to keep their OS up and running. Windows United says the subscription covers special Windows 10 features that windows 10 regular users can’t use, meaning it will be a value-added product, not a basic feature of Windows 10.
Of course, you don’t rule out bundled Windows 10 features that are open to all users, but removing ad content requires users to pay for Microsoft 365. Currently, Microsoft 365 is a product for business and commercial customers that combines Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility plus Security. But as far as the rumors are available, the consumer-facing version of Microsoft 365 (which should be called Microsoft 365 Life after launch) is a simple rename of the current Office 365 and retains the same pricing plan.
