Microsoft renames everything that was Office to 365 • The Register

logowatch MS Office changed its name to Microsoft 365 365 years ago, but now seems to be doing a master clean to completely do away with the brand and consider the entire suite as “productivity” rather than Office apps.

Microsoft rebranded its Office 365 suite as Microsoft 365 back in 2017, but now — the domain that hosts the web-based version of Office — will get a splash of color, the Office mobile app, and more, which Redmond says include adding it other functions.

Excel, Outlook, Word, and PowerPoint will all be under the Microsoft 365 brand, and judging by the logo on Microsoft’s announcement, the centerpiece will be a fresh emblem.

The enterprise software maker certainly seems keen to ditch office associations as more companies adopt a hybrid or full WFH setup.

The deep orange “O” for Office – stylized into that square shape with the odd gap – will disappear in favor of a blue, won’t it quite Flat folded Mobius strip depicting the endless hours of a work-from-home corporate drone.

The logo is reminiscent of the Google Drive logo from 2012-2014 – the current one has venn diagram-like overlapping foils instead of folds – the logo includes a blue and purple gradient that alternates as the ribbon curves in and out rotates.

The software giant informed users that nothing would happen to their existing accounts, profiles, subscriptions and files. The old Office app will be automatically updated with the new icon and name starting in November.

The company was excited:

There are some redesigned soft graphics at the top of the blog, but the full overhaul won’t roll out until November. Let us know what you hope to see in our poll or participate in the comments forum below. ®
