Microsoft has rolled out a new feature to Office 365, and it’s giving Office 365 employees the chance to purchase the free version of the software.
The feature, which has been available since last year, will allow employees to buy Office 365 as a paid subscription to get the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote and Outlook Mobile.
Microsoft says the Office 365 free version will be available starting October 31, and that it’s available for Office 365 Enterprise and Education users.
Microsoft said Office 365 will be the first version of its product to have the new “free version” feature, but it has not revealed pricing or availability for Office Online, which is the paid version of Microsoft Office.
Microsoft also announced the launch of a new, all-new version of Windows that includes Office 365 and the Office apps it makes.
The company said the new, standalone Windows 10 desktop OS will be offered at no cost, but will be bundled with Office 365.
Microsoft has previously announced that its Office 365 subscription service would be available for free from November 15.
Microsoft also said Office 2016 would also be available at no charge.
