    Should Windows Update also provide Office 365 updates too?


    Even though I have the 'Give me updates for other Microsoft Products...' option checked within Windows Updates, I've never had any updates offered for Office 365. (I always have to do an update check from within one of the Office programs).

    Is this 'normal' please?

    Is not Office 365 the online version? Updates for the classic version can be enabled.

    My official subscription is to 'Office 365', but yes it's Office 2016 on my laptop...the update settings there are correct.

    But my point is: why aren't updates for Office suites downloaded automatically as part of Windows Update?

    It is by design. Office Updates with Office 2016 Click-to-Run version is different with its MSI based counterpart. Tools like Microsoft Update and corresponding MSP files are not involved in software updates.
