Whether it’s for home or work, there will come a time when you will have to upgrade your Office. There are 2 types of office products; Office 365 Subscription and non-subscription such as the Word application or the Office Home & Business. Your upgrade will be different depending on which product you have.

Office 365 Subscription
Whether you choose the Office 365 Personal or the Office 365 Home (family plan), purchasing an Office 365 subscription is a serious investment and your best option.
