Microsoft is bringing the goods for anyone forking over money for an Office 365 subscription. In addition to all the documents editing tools and email services 365 enables, your OneDrive cloud storage account will afford you unlimited storage space for Home, Personal, and University customers. That’s for $6.99 per month. To compare, a $9.99 per month plan on Google Drive or Dropbox only gets you 1TB.
Microsoft found themselves needing to add a ton of value to an Office 365 subscription considering competitors are offering many of its features for free. Google Drive and all the document editing tools that come with it can be had without paying a dime.
We’d say adding unlimited cloud storage is one way to win folks over who weren’t convinced that paid solutions weren’t any better than the freebies. Not a bad reason to switch over to OneDrive and Office 365 if you need massive cloud storage. Current 365 customers can head here to request access to your unlimited storage early. Otherwise, Microsoft’s only promise is that the plan changes will be rolling out “in the coming months.”
