Microsoft Removing Standalone Office Features to Force Users Towards Office 365

by Jack Martin WEB EXPERT

Microsoft declared a week ago that beginning October 13, 2020, clients who bought a duplicate of an independent Office item —, for example, Office 2010, Office 2013, and Office 2016 — will have their entrance renounced to Skype for Business and OneDrive for Business accounts.

Access to these records accompanied the interminable permit clients purchased for the independent Office duplicate.

Microsoft says that when standard help closes for Office 2016, on October 13, 2020, so does this entrance, yet that clients can recapture it by dumping independent Office suites and moving to a cloud-based Office 365 ProPlus account.

"We're giving over three years' notice to give IT an opportunity to plan and spending plan for this change," Microsoft said in an announcement. "Until the point that this new necessity becomes effective in 2020, Office 2010, Office 2013 and Office 2016 unending customers will at present have the capacity to interface with Office 365 administrations [Skype and OneDrive for Business]."

Specialists say this is a hidden endeavor to constrain clients to move to its Office 365 paid administration. A year ago, Microsoft bragged of having in excess of 85 million Office 365 clients.

Much the same as Adobe, Microsoft is attempting to move far from the exemplary permit based buy model to a month to month membership benefit, known to acquire stable income and a speedier return for any interests in new highlights.

Likewise this previous week, Microsoft reported that significant updates for Office 365 ProPlus and the Windows 10 OS will be synchronized and conveyed in the meantime, twice every year, one refresh in March, and one refresh in September. The organization said it took this choice to influence the move up to process less demanding for organizations and sysadmins.
