Office Delve — Microsoft’s technology to provide Office 365 customers with contextual search and notifications — has begun rolling out to Office 365 customers, and will reach most business users by early 2015. What does it do, and do you need it?
Hey Lifehacker, It often seems that buying as a new customer is cheaper than the rate for existing customers. Case in point, Office 365. I already have a current subscription (which I purchased on special at Officeworks), but it’s due to expire soon. I note that new subscriptions often go on sale for around $89, while Microsoft is charging me $12/month (or $144/year). So the question is: can I extend my current subscription by purchasing another pack and extending the current subscription?
Android: Back in April, Microsoft announced plans for an Android Outlook client replicating its Office Web Access interface. That app is now available in a preview version, but only some accounts will be able to test it.
Having announced it last month, Microsoft’s cut-price edition of its Office 365 subscription suite, Office 365 Personal, went on sale yesterday. While it might be tempting to save $30 by purchasing the Personal edition, we think that’s a mistake and you’d be better off with the Home edition. This is why.
Last July, Microsoft released an iOS app specifically designed to replicate the features of its Outlook Web Access (OWA) browser-based interface, but in a native iOS environment for business Office 365 users. This week, it has announced plans to do the same for Android, saying a native app will be available soon.
Hey Lifehacker, Following last week’s launch, I’m interested in getting Office 365 for my iPhone and iPad. I already have a 365 Home subscription, and I’m using three of the five licences. Do I need to use the remaining two licences, one for my iPhone and one for my iPad, to get full access to the apps on both devices?
