A comparison of the new licences
As you can see Exchange yellow is no longer part of the new Microsoft 365 F1. The focus for better collaboration goes entirely to Microsoft Teams!
A perfect scenario are remote workers who consult documents. The big advantage of the licence is lots of functionality for a relatively low price.
The new F1 is not for users who have their own device with Windows 10. It is for remote users with a tablet or smartphone.
There is no OneDrive for business for the new F1 licences. However, it is possible to save documents on Microsoft Teams.
