Should I buy Office 365 or stay with G-Suite? #M365AMA

In this episode, the #M365AMA panel discusses the following community question:

“Wondering if I should buy Office 365 or not. My current school only uses G-Suite. This past year I have been doing/creating assignments and assessments on Canvas. I do enjoy Outlook for home use (personal AOL e-mail account, Gmail accounts and an Outlook e-mail account). (Can’t use the desktop Outlook app at school on work device.) Does G-Drive handle Office files well? Isn’t PowerPoint better than Google Slides, especially in terms of embedding video and audio? I haven’t used much Office applications this past year due to working with Canvas. And I have little experience using G-Suite products.”
