At the annual Microsoft Ignite conference, Microsoft has revealed that Microsoft Office will soon be rebranded across all products as Microsoft 365.

Limited Offer: You can currently get 88% off a Microsoft Office For Mac Home & Business Lifetime License for $39.99 (normally $349.99) or 89% off 2 Lifetime Licenses for $74.99 (normally $698.00) for a limited period.

Microsoft already rebranded Office 365 subscriptions as Microsoft 365 a few years ago but from November onwards, the rebranding will be rolled-out across the entire Microsoft Office range.

The existence of the two brands has caused confusion for some time now with Mac users in particular not sure what the difference is between Microsoft Office For Mac vs Microsoft 365.
