What's the difference between Office 365 and Office 2019?
The Office 365 program is a subscription that comes with premium apps such as:
- Access (Publisher as well as Access available on PC only).
These apps can be installed on multiple devices such as:
- Android tablets
- Android phones
The Office 365 program also comes with services such as:
- 1TB of OneDrive storage
- 60 Skype minutes per month
- Microsoft chat along with phone support
With your new subscriptions, you gain access to the latest versions of the apps as well as automatically receive updates when they just launch.
The Office 2019 program is a "one-time purchase" (which may or may not be a perk) that comes with excellent apps such as:
- PowerPoint for PC or Mac
The One-time purchases will not have an upgrade option, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you'll have to buy it at full price.
Customer Review and Feedback
Here is what some people are saying about this product:
Quick Download! Easy To Install
"I read another review that stated that the product was not yet ready to be downloaded, so I felt a little apprehensive purchasing so soon after the release. However, I can confirm that the download went smoothly (took about 25 minutes for me via cable internet) and installation went without a hitch as well. Microsoft requires that you login to your Microsoft account in order to register the program--so it took a few minutes to navigate their two-factor authentication so I could reset the password that I've long forgotten. But despite the slight hiccup I definitely appreciate the security MS embraces to ensure the safety of ones account.
I downloaded the Mac OS version of MS Office 2019 and am happy to have Outlook again! Apple, I love you, but I just don't care for the included Mail program on my Macbook. When I first installed Outlook, it immediately detected my gmail account and asked if it could add it for me. All I had to do was confirm "yes" in the newly opened browser window and within seconds my entire gmail inbox was loading within Outlook. How convenient! The aesthetics are pleasing and the mail windows are easy to navigate.
I haven't had a chance to check out the other apps just yet but will continue to update as I do. My initial impression thus far is a positive one. Normally I don't write reviews so early on but I wanted to ease the minds of anyone unsure whether to invest in the download just yet. Seems to be working great so far!
EDIT: 10/16/2018 Microsoft has already rolled out updates for this product suite. I have been using Office 2019 heavily and so far have not run into any glitches or issues that made me regret my purchase. I'm loving how smooth and attractive the interface is--it's very intuitive as well, which I appreciate. I am often reluctant to try things when they are new, sometimes it's worth waiting a bit for the bugs to work their way out. But this new version of Office seems solid so far." - Shelby P
What is the Product Key and where can I find it?
A Product Key is the unique 25-character alpha-numeric code that is used to redeem as well as activate the Office product you just purchased. You cannot (you will be restricted) use the product key for any of the older Office product to redeem your new copy of Office.
To locate the Product Key, look for the 25-character alpha-numeric code on the back of the card inside your Office product packaging. Sometimes, if you cannot find it on the back of your card, the Product Key may be printed on your retail receipt. If you purchased Office from a PC manufacturer, your Product Key would be located somewhere in your PC packaging.
The Sample Product Key format: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
We work hard to make sure your software download and installation process is as seamless as possible. However, once a product key is deployed for your purchase, we cannot accept product cancellations once the key has been activated or an attempt to activate it has taken place. If you encounter any issues when installing your new software purchase, our technical support team will help troubleshoot your installation.
