Microsoft to remove install limits for Office 365 subscribers

Microsoft has announced that it will soon be effectively eliminating limits on the number of devices that its apps can be used on by Office 365 subscribers. Office 365 Personal users have long been limited to using the Microsoft apps on a single PC/Mac and a single iPad or other table, while Home subscribers were able to install on up to any combination of 10 devices in total, although still only effectively two devices for each of the five user licenses offered by Office 365 Home. Starting Oct. 2, however, Microsoft will begin allowing subscribers to install Office on an unlimited number of devices, with the only limitation being that users will still only be able to be actively signed into their accounts on up to five devices simultaneously. In addition, Office 365 Home users will be gaining an extra subscription, increasing the number of users who can share the subscription to six, which will also still include 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage for each user, and be more tightly integrated with Microsoft’s family service for automating sharing of subscriptions with family members.
