Microsoft is now offering OfficePlus free to all users on all platforms, the company announced today.
The move comes amid growing interest from businesses and consumers in using Microsoft’s free Office suite of productivity applications.
Microsoft announced in December that OfficePlus would be available to Office users on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux as well as Android and iOS platforms.
Microsoft is also introducing a new free OfficePlus Premium version of the free version, which will include additional features such as support for the Office Suite Pro and Office ProPlus Premium licenses.
Microsoft also plans to offer a subscription service that will include Office, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote, OneDrive, Skype, and Xbox Live Gold.
The free version will be available for $59.99 per year, which includes Office and its 365 subscription service.
OfficePlus Premium, on the other hand, will cost $149.99 annually and include support for Office 365 and Office 365 ProPlus.
The new subscription service will be released in October and will include more features than the free offering.
Microsoft says that Microsoft Office Plus users will be able to download new Office software, including the Microsoft Office suite, to their computers for free.
