Microsoft says it’s all about business that they have decided this move. In a discussion with The Verge, the company told it’s just an extension of an existing strategy.

Microsoft Office users who save documents on OneDrive for Business or Dropbox for business will not be covered by this new update, and they still need to pay for their subscription.
