After spending much time learning the differences between the two, now Microsoft has decided to drop this on us! I’m sure this won’t be confusing at all…(cue the sarcasm).
As shown on Microsoft’s website here…
Office 365 is becoming Microsoft 365
New name, same great value, same price.
Don’t worry-you don’t need to do a thing. Your product services, apps, and features will stay the same, along with the price. Your subscription name will update automatically in the admin center and your monthly billing statements on or after April 21, 2020.
1) Office 365 Business Essentials is now Microsoft 365 Business Basic
2) Office 365 Business Premium is now Microsoft 365 Business Standard
3) Microsoft 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Business Premium
4) Office 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Apps for business
5) Office 365 ProPlus is now Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise
