Microsoft is working on a new home consumer 365 bundle that “will be the consumer-focused complement to Microsoft’s existing Microsoft 365 subscription bundle for business users,” reports ZDNet. According to their website article:


“A couple of recent Microsoft job postings mention the consumer subscription bundle, which Microsoft has yet to announce publicly. One job posting for a Product Manager for the “M365 Consumer Subscription” notes: “The Subscription Product Marketing team is a new team being created to build and scale the Microsoft 365 Consumer Subscription.” The job description says the product manager for this service will help “identify, build, position and market a great new Microsoft 365 Consumer Subscription.” 

The job post notes that the team behind Microsoft 365 Consumer oversees the Windows platform, the Microsoft Surface device portfolio, Office 365 consumer plans, Skype, Cortana, Bing search, as well as the Microsoft Education team. If I were betting on what Microsoft 365 Consumer might include, I’d think some variant of Windows 10, Office 365 Home, Skype, Cortana, Bing, Outlook Mobile, Microsoft To-Do and maybe MSN apps and services could figure into the picture. Maybe this subscription will be tied to Surface devices only? Maybe a monthly leasing fee for Surfaces will be part of the bundle itself?”
