Microsoft's new Office 365 SMB plans now available for existing customers

Microsoft's Office 365 productivity suite has been rapidly growing with each passing year, and the company has continuously reinvented ways to bring it within the reach of businesses of all sizes. Last year, Microsoft introduced three new plans for new customers, starting at prices as low as $5 per user per month. However, these plans weren't made available to existing users until now, due to certain dependencies that needed to be sorted out for making it a seamless experience.

Initially, Microsoft had revealed that existing customers could switch to the new plans starting from the 1st of October. But this date was pushed ahead to the 1st of December, as noted by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley. Now, these users can finally migrate to the new plans, details of which are as follows:

Office 365 Business Essentials:

  • Price: $5 per user per month (annual commitment)
  • Online versions of Office with email and video conferencing
  • Email with 50 GB mailbox

Office 365 Business:

  • Price: $8.25 per user per month (annual commitment)
