M365 Changelog: Important Notice – End of Support for Office 2013 and Recommended Upgrade

MC678062 – Note: This message only applies to you if members of your organization are still running Office 2013.


As of six months ago, support for Microsoft Office 2013 has officially ended. This means that security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates from Microsoft have ended for this version of the product.

How this will affect your organization:

If your organization is still running this version of the product, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to a newer version as soon as possible. Continuing to use Office 2013 could expose your system to potential security vulnerabilities and compatibility issues with new software and updates.

To ensure continuous support and access to the latest features, we recommend migrating to Microsoft 365 E3, which includes the Microsoft 365 Apps. This product is continuously supported and updated by Microsoft, providing you with the most secure and efficient tools for your needs.

Please take a moment to review this article that provides recommendations, information, and links to help organizations plan their upgrades from older versions of Office to Microsoft 365 Apps. If you haven’t already begun to upgrade from these older versions of Office, we recommend you start now.
