Microsoft released on Tuesday the new "Personal" edition of Office 365.

Office 365 Personal costs $6.99 per month or $69.99 for a year's subscription, according to Microsoft's announcement. Designed for individual users, each Office 365 Personal subscription allows full Office installations on one PC or Mac, and one tablet device (either a Windows tablet or an Apple iPad). Users can also access Office apps through their smartphones using the Office Mobile app.

The subscription also includes 20 GB of OneDrive cloud storage and 60 Skype world minutes per month.

Microsoft offers two other consumer-oriented Office 365 subscriptions: Office 365 Home (previously called Office 365 Home Premium) and Office Online.

Designed for families, Office 365 Home costs $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year, and allows full Office installations on up to five PCs and Macs, and up to five tablets. It also comes with up to 100 GB of OneDrive storage (20 GB per user).

Office Online is free and requires only a Microsoft account, but is limited to the Web-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
