On January 30th, Microsoft is set to launch a new and more affordable tier of its Microsoft 365 product line, which includes productivity software, collaboration tools, and cloud-based services. Dubbed “Microsoft 365 Basic,” this new plan will be priced at $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year and will initially include 100 GB of storage, Outlook email, and access to support experts for assistance with Microsoft 365 and Windows 11. Existing OneDrive subscribers with 100 GB of storage will also be transitioned to Microsoft 365 Basic starting on January 30th. In the upcoming months, Microsoft 365 Basic plan members will gain access to advanced security features such as ransomware recovery and password-protected sharing links in OneDrive. It’s worth noting that Microsoft 365 Basic is not replacing the free Microsoft 365 tier, which will continue to be available and include access to web-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, OneDrive, Clipchamp, and more, along with 5 GB of cloud storage. Microsoft 365 Personal, on the other hand, will still be priced at $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. a fresh new website is already accessible and will allow you to subscribe to the new plans.
