INFO: 1 TB of storage coming in July for Office 365 Home/Personal/University subscribers

imageAs of July, you will be getting 1TB of OneDrive storage if you subscribe to any of the following consumer subscriptions:

  • Office 365 Home
  • Office 365 Personal
  • Office 365 University

This new announcement reiterates our commitment to the cloud and our customers that have invested in Microsoft’s cloud technologies & services.

What’s missing in all of this is that you can share your Office 365 Home subscription with up to 4 other family members.  What this means is that each family member will get:

  • Access/usage of all the Office 365 applications (For Windows: Outlook. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote, Publisher… or for Mac: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook) while also getting
  • 1TB of storage in OneDrive for each user

That’s up to 5TB of storage and access to the world’s #1 Office suite all through 1 subscription.  It’s an amazing deal.  For instructions on how to do this follow this link:

Here’s the announcement from the Office Blog:

imageToday, OneDrive and Office are announcing a BIG change to that benefit for consumers, to the tune of 1 TB per user. That’s right–we’re increasing the OneDrive storage allotment included with Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal, and Office 365 University from 20 GB to 1 TB. That’s a whopping 50 times, or 5,000 percent increase in storage–and it’s going to be here before classes are in session!
