Universal print Microsoft

Microsoft will increase the number of print jobs per license to 100, up from 5, for all organizations with Microsoft 365 A3 and Microsoft 365 A5 licenses, starting May 1, 2024. That is about a staggering 1900% increase.

According to the official announcement, these 100 print jobs will be available per account/month, and each month, the number will be refreshed.

The Redmond-based tech giant says the decision to increase the number of Universal print jobs will benefit many organizations, and it cited the use of the print add-ons as an example, saying that now, this new benefit will eliminate the need to rely on them (thus, not having to spend budget on them, anymore).

100 print jobs is a significant increase from the existing licensing terms, which provided only five print jobs. This means that most organizations can use Universal Print with no extra cost if they have eligible licenses. Also, if you have already purchased volume add-ons, this new benefit may reduce or eliminate the need for you to purchase print job add-ons and may allow you to give more users access to Universal Print. Carefully investigate what volume you need and cancel any additional volume purchases if they are no longer necessary.


Alongside this staggering increase, Microsoft is bringing new capabilities to Universal print: users will soon be able to print from macOS devices, but also from any device with the new pull print feature.

Pull Print (coming soon) simplifies the printing process for users, allowing them to print to any printer. Users can print from any device or app without having to choose a printer in advance. Then, they can go to any corporate printer that’s nearby, verify their identity, and safely retrieve their document.


Microsoft decided to increase the number of Universal print jobs, after many educational organizations, including schools, and universities complained about the rising costs of printing.

The Redmond-based tech giant already implemented this increase in the business sector, with Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Microsoft 365 Business Premium getting 100 print jobs a year ago.
