How do I get the Office 2016 applications if I'm already an Office 365 subscriber?

As an Office 365 subscriber, you'll always have access to the latest Office features, services, and applications. On a Windows PC, if you have an older version of Office installed, your Office applications will be kept up to date automatically. If you'd like to verify you're up to date, check your Office version number and manually update Office if necessary.


 1. Open any Office application, like Word or Excel.


2. Click File > Account.


3. Under Product Information, click Update Options > Update Now.


Note: If you don't see Update Now, click Enable Updates to turn on automatic updates. After that, click Update Options > Update Now. You can also visit www.office.com/myaccount to download and install Office 2016. Note you cannot have both Office 2013 and Office 2016 installed on the same PC at the same time.

On a Mac, you can install Office 2016 for Mac by visiting www.office.com/myaccount.

Is Internet access required for Office?

Internet access is required to install and activate all the latest releases of Office suites and all Office 365 subscription plans. For Office 365 plans, Internet access is also needed to manage your subscription account, for example to install Office on other PCs or to change billing options. Internet access is also required to access documents stored on OneDrive, unless you install the OneDrive desktop app.You should also connect to the Internet regularly to keep your version of Office up to date and benefit from automatic upgrades. If you do not connect to the Internet at least every 39 days, your applications will go into reduced functionality mode, which means that you can view or print your documents, but cannot edit the documents or create new ones. To reactivate your Office applications, simply reconnect to the Internet.

You do not need to be connected to the Internet to use the Office applications, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, because the applications are fully installed on your computer.

How do I know my PC or Mac can run Office?

The current version of Office supports PCs running Windows 7 or later and Macs running Mac OS X 10.10 or later for Office 2016 for Mac. For more information, including requirements for Apple® and Android™ tablets, view full system requirements.

Will Office be identical on a PC, a Mac, and a mobile device?

No. Office applications are tailored to work best on each platform and device. The Office applications available for Mac users and the version numbers may be different from those available for PC users.

What happens when my subscription ends?

As the expiration date approaches, you will receive notifications in the Office applications and via email, alerting you to the upcoming expiration. If you choose to let your subscription expire, the Office software applications enter read-only mode, which means that you can view or print documents, but you can’t create new documents or edit existing documents. To return to full Office functionality, you can purchase  a new version of Office from any participating retailer. You could also return to full functionality using an older version of Office, or you can use Office Online for free for basic editing.
