On March 19, 2020, Microsoft announced a new Microsoft 365 plan designed specifically for Firstline Workers. The offer helps organizations connect their Firstline Workers with the rest of the company and close long-standing technology gaps that often separate these workers from secure apps and services that enable continuous productivity, simplify communication and support greater self-service.
This new plan extends the Microsoft 365 SKU line-up and slots below their existing firstline plan. As such, it inherits the Microsoft 365 F1 name and the current Microsoft 365 F1 plan will be renamed to Microsoft 365 F3 to provide consistency across Microsoft’s commercial offers.
Finally, to create a truly connected and secure company, Microsoft is also expanding the Microsoft Teams value included in their Firstline plans (Microsoft 365 F1, Office 365 F3, and Microsoft 365 F3) to include full audio / video capabilities, meeting rights, Walkie Talkie, and adding enhanced identity and access management features disclosed earlier this calendar year.
