Microsoft has recently announced that it is changing the name of the Office 365 to Microsoft 365. This change will become effective from 21 April 2020. You will shortly see these changes in the products, across your subscriptions, the Admin Centre as well as any invoices you received from Microsoft and/or Partners such as CyberGuru.
