Microsoft 365 and Office 365 subscription prices are getting increased announces Microsoft

For the first time in a decade, Microsoft has announced they are increasing the prices for office 365 and Microsoft 365 next year. This will only go through for users that use the service for business and commercial use with student users being exempt.

This news comes as Microsoft reports a highly successful financial year with record-breaking revenue growth due to services like office 365, which generated an increase in users during the pandemic.

The updated pricing list is to go into effect on March 1st 2022:

Microsoft 365 E3 (From £23 to £26)

Office 365 E5 (From £25 to £27)

Office 365 E1 (From £5 to £7)

Microsoft 365 Business Basic (From £3 to £4)

Microsoft 365 Business premium (£14 to £15)

Ever since the creation of office 365 in 2011, the service has added 1,400 new features and 24 new apps these consist of

  • Powerpoint
  • Excel
  • Word
  • Lync
  • Outlook
  • Exchange
  • InfoPat

And app’s include

  • Visio
  • Power Apps/Automate/BI (Power Platform)
  • OneDrive
  • Teams

Nobody likes a price increase especially when the service hasn’t had one in the last decade but this news could give something good this could mean Microsoft has got some new features/app’s in development for us which would justify a price increase. All the features/app clearly shows the service is well worth the price of admission will this new change make you turn away from 365 or will it not make a difference for you?
