What is the difference between Office 365 and Office 2019
Office 365 is a subscription that comes with premium apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access (Publisher and Access available on PC only). The apps can be installed on multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and Android phones. Office 365 also comes with services like 1 TB of OneDrive storage, 60 Skype minutes per month and Microsoft chat and phone support. With a subscription, you get the latest versions of the apps and automatically receive updates when they happen.
Office 2019 is a one-time purchase that comes with classic apps like Word, Excel and PowerPoint for PC or Mac, and does not include any of the services that come with an Office 365 subscription. One-time purchases don’t have an upgrade option, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you’ll have to buy it at full price.
Do i need an Internet connection
Internet access is required to install and activate Office, but not to use Office applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint once you have these fully installed on your computer.
For Office 365 customers, connecting to the internet regularly ensures that you can receive automatic updates and your Office apps are on the latest versions. Internet access will also be needed to manage your Office 365 account – for example, to change payment options or to access documents stored on OneDrive.
