    Microsoft ships subscription-free version of Office 2016 for Mac




    Microsoft on Tuesday launched a standalone edition of Office 2016 for Mac for people who don't want or need an Office 365 subscription, which costs at least $7 per month or $70 per year.

    The Home & Student edition costs a one-time fee of $150, and limits users to one Mac and 15 gigabytes of OneDrive cloud storage, versus the 1 terabyte assigned to 365 subscribers. Users can't fully unlock the mobile version of Office, and lack other perks like free tech support and Skype minutes.

    There is no standalone business option. Organizations must sign up for a 365 plan that costs at least $5 per month, per user, scaling up to $12.50 per user for the fully-featured Business Premium.

    Office 2016 for Mac includes redesigned versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote, with new interfaces in line with Microsoft's flagship Windows software. Some features are still missing on the Mac, such as Quick Analysis in Excel.

    The company released a Mac suite for Office 365 subscribers back in July. At the time it promised only that standalone software would ship sometime in September, leaving out pricing or what would be included.
