Microsoft has begun selling subscriptions for Office 365 Home Premium, a cloud-based version of its office suite programs that also includes a handful of additional features.
The cloud service costs $99.99 a year and includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access. Additionally, Office 365 comes with 20 gigabytes of cloud storage in Microsoft SkyDrive and 60 monthly minutes of world-wide calling through Skype.
"This is Office reinvented as a consumer cloud service with all the full-featured Office applications people know and love, together with impressive new cloud and social benefits," Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said in a statement.
The cloud-based service works with up to five devices, including desktops, laptops and tablets. Because it's based in the cloud, the software will also automatically update on its own.
