Will Office 365 work with my copy of Office?
Office 365 U.S. Government E3 and Office 365 U.S. Government E4 include the latest desktop version of Office, which delivers
the best experience for your employees and makes it easy for IT to manage deployment
and upgrades. For the Office 365 plans that do not come with the latest desktop version
of Office, Office 365 works with the latest version of Office, Office 2013, and Office
2011 for Mac, so you can take advantage of the rich Office 365 cloud services such
as business-class email, HD video conferencing, and file sharing. Previous versions
of Office, such as Office 2010 and Office 2007, may work with Office 365 with reduced
functionality. This compatibility with Office does not include the Exchange Online
Kiosk or Office 365 Enterprise K1 plans.
Is Internet access required for Office 365?
Internet access is required to install and activate all Office 365 plans and to manage your subscription account. Internet
connectivity is also required to access Office 365 cloud productivity services, including
email, conferencing, IT management, and other services.
Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of Office, for example, Office 365 Business Premium and Office 365
Enterprise E3. One of the benefits of having the desktop version of Office applications
is that you can work offline and have the confidence that the next time you connect
to the Internet all your work will automatically sync, so you never have to worry
about your documents being up to date. Your desktop version of Office is also automatically
kept up to date and upgraded when you connect to the Internet, so you always have
the latest tools to help you work.
