Frequently Asked Questions

Is Microsoft Visio free?

Microsoft Visio is a premium software program, with several different subscription-based plans. However, if you follow the steps above, you can download a free trial version through the Microsoft Evaluation Center. 

What is the difference between Visio Plan 1 and Visio Plan 2?

There are two Visio plans in the Microsoft Evaluation Center; Plan 1 and Plan 2.

  • Plan 1: Access to the limited browser-based version of Visio and 2GB of storage on OneDrive for Business.
  • Plan 2: In addition to browser-based Visio, you can download the complete Visio program to your computer. You will also get great features, such as connecting your work to real-time data and collaborating with others.

Is Visio included in Microsoft 365?

If you’re looking through your Microsoft 365 apps thinking of downloading Microsoft 365, you won’t find Visio. While it is a Microsoft application, it isn’t part of the core Microsoft 365 package, but rather a plug-in that has to be added separately.

What’s the difference between PowerPoint and Visio?

While they seem similar, two Microsoft products that have presentation capabilities, there are few similarities between the two programs. PowerPoint is great for designing presentations and has many helpful templates to help design a professional slideshow or proposal. While you can make a basic diagram or chart with PowerPowint, if you want access to the professional templates, and the tools to design a detailed chart, diagram, or floor plan, Visio is a far superior program.

Is Visio compatible with Mac?

Yes and no. The Visio download isn’t compatible with Macs, but if you have either Plan 1 or Plan 2 you can access Visio on a browser on a Mac.
