Microsoft Office 365 is Now Microsoft 365

Fri, 05/01/2020

May 1, 2020 - Microsoft Office originated in the 1990s and has evolved through several iterations since its inception. The powerhouse software company has long been the leading office suite for home, students, and businesses.

In 2011, Microsoft changed the game with the launch of Office 365, a subscription-based service hosted online that enabled teams to collaborate on files and documents, easily access shared calendars, and instant message each other. This also eliminated the periodic need to purchase and install new versions of the software, as the cloud version was always up to date with the latest features.

CNET Content Solutions and Microsoft have enjoyed a successful partnership since 2002, with CNET delivering digital Microsoft product content to its ecommerce partners worldwide. Among services such as structured content delivery, rich content syndication, and digital campaign networks, CNET provides a Microsoft-branded, Microsoft-sponsored attach widget that is displayed on the ecommerce product pages for products that are Microsoft Office compatible. This enables shoppers to add the software to their shopping cart at the same time they add their new laptop or desktop computer.

As of April 21, 2020, Microsoft Office 365 has now become Microsoft 365. CNET Content Solutions and Microsoft have worked to keep these attach programs up-to-date with the latest program information.

In detail, here’s what’s changed:

  • All Office 365 versions currently promoted in the program will be replaced by the Microsoft 365 version.
  • Support for
    • Microsoft 365 Personal
    • Microsoft 365 Family
    • Microsoft 365 Business Standard
  • Updated logo and hover branding

CNET Content Solutions is pleased to continue its longstanding partnership with Microsoft. This update exemplifies how the partnership has been able to evolve over the years.

All Microsoft eCommerce Attach programs are available to Microsoft retailer partners at no cost. If you would like more information on Microsoft services provided by CNET Content Solutions, including the Microsoft 365 Attach Program, please visit
