Office 2013 vs. Office 2010

This question has suggested answer(s) This question has suggested answer(s)

Hi there,


I can't seem to resolve what is probably very easy:


How does Office 2013 fit in with Office 365? The Office download from the Office 365 ProPlus installs Office 2010, but "Office 2013" is referenced in most of the documentation, and especially in the deployment section of TechNet.


Is Office 2013 only available with one of the other editions of Office 365?

  • Hi Pasanna,

    About Office 365 you may have a look at Office 365 overview, Office 365 is the only web-based service fully compatible with Microsoft Office.
    You may sign up a trial account here, and then use the account (E Plan), download Office 2010 and install it. It’s not available to install Office 2013 use Office 365 account, should use Office 365 preview account.
    Office 2013 only has preview version currently, meanwhile, Office 365 preview is associate with Office 2013. You may sign up an Office 365 preview account here, and then use the account you may download Office 2013 preview and install it.

  • Hi pasanna,

    Office 2013 is the next version of office tha will be released later this year or early next year. When it is released everything will be upgraded, and a new version of Office 365 will replace what we have today, that will use 2013 version of all the software. If you wish you can go to the Microsoft web site and sign-up to test the preview of 2013, including the next version of office 365, and all of the Office client software programs.
