Windows 7 End of Support and Office 365 ProPlus
As announced previously, Windows 7 will be out of support after January 14, 2020. Because Office 365 is governed by the Modern Lifecycle Policy, customers are required to stay current as per servicing the system requirement for the product or service. This includes Office 365 ProPlus on a Windows operating system that is currently in support.
How does this impact me?
Even though Windows 7 will no longer be supported after January 2020, we understand Office 365 customers may need more time in their migration to a supported operating system. Through January 2023, Microsoft will provide security updates for Office 365 ProPlus on Windows 7, but, during that time, as long as the device is still running Windows 7, Office 365 ProPlus wont receive any new feature updates.
What should I do to prepare for this change?
We recommend that organizations migrate to Windows 10 or a supported operating system before the end of support date on January 14, 2020, in order to continue receiving new feature and updates to Office 365 ProPlus. We'll be providing more information by January about how to get security updates for Office 365 ProPlus on devices running Windows 7 after support for Windows 7 ends.
Note: This information also applies on Office 365 Business which is included in business plans such as Microsoft Office 365 Business and Office 365 Business Premium, and to desktop versions of Project and Vision.
