    No additional updates for Office 2013 after February 2017


    Understand how long you can continue to use the Office 2013 version of Office 365 ProPlus

    You can continue to receive updates for the Office 2013 version of Office 365 ProPlus until February 2017. After February 2017, there will be no additional updates for the Office 2013 version. Therefore, we recommend that you upgrade to the Office 2016 version of Office 365 ProPlus as soon as possible.

    If you choose to continue to deploy the Office 2013 version of Office 365 ProPlus, you need to do the following:

    Office 2016 and 365 is a lot better than the older version 2013 and 365 as it would not send to my HP Printer.
    Had to use copy and paste nearly all the time,
    Had no trouble at all since upgrading
    So I for one recommend upgrade as soon as possible

    I am using Office 2007 for 5 years.
    No desire to upgrade.
    MS is not going to make me pay for a new version. Not a chance.

    Wife has 2010 and I have 2013. Both work perfectly with no printing or any other issues whatsoever. Will not upgrade unless it would be free. We have an HP wireless printer. Works great.

    I have the stand alone versions of 2010 and 2013 and I assume MS is talking about Office 365 only, which is a subscription service.
    I don't know enough to ask the right questions.

    Your Correct Jim, you will be fine, I also have Office 2013 on 2 computers. This news is about Office 365 only.

    I also use Office 2007, but it goes out of support in 2017, meaning it will no longer get security updates.
    At that point I will probably do something to upgrade, to reduce the risk of attack.

    I don't really understand the whole 365 thing. I have it and pay the subscription, i only got it late last year so assume it's office 2016 - it does its updates in the background. Assuming I continue paying my subscription for years to come does it automatically update / upgrade itself to the newest version? For example, say MS decide to unleash a new office 2017 or 2018 at some point will my 365 update itself to keep itself upto date. It would be a nuisance if I had to uninstall the entire office suite and then re-install the latest 2017/2018 or whatever it will be. If I subscribe every year then I guess I should be entitled to be on whatever version of office MS considers its latest and greatest. I hope that makes sense.

    more on topic - I think no longer getting updates for this isn't going to be necessarily a bad thing. 'Updates' seem to be a constant thorn in the side and potentially break software that was otherwise working well. Between MS, Apple, Adobe and all the other software heavyweights pushing update after update we seem to spend more time updating than actually using our tech. I guess DavidHK has the right attitude. If you've got Office 2007 or 2013 why would you need 2016. As long you can open, edit documents and print then that's all a standard user would need. If support stops then that's one less thing to have to worry about updates.

    When I had Office 2013 and 365 which I am paying for they told me to upgrade to 2016 etc at no extra charge,
    It worked in the background and uninstalled 2013 and then downloaded and installed the new look 365 and 2016.
    So as long as we pay for it the next version if there is one will do the same.
