Microsoft Visio is a graphic design and collaboration tool, used for several tasks, such as planning, designing a proposal or laying out a series of steps required to achieve a goal. Unlike Plan 1, Plan 2 includes the desktop application, which is kept constantly up to date, and can be installed across up to 5 computers running Windows 10, 8 or 7. Plan 2 also allows the incorporation of Office 365 data, as well as the co-authoring of diagrams, a much more extensive collection of shapes, a third party template store, the ability to insert hyperlinks, and much more.
Anyone with an Office 365, SharePoint Online, or OneDrive for Business subscription can view diagrams created and shared through Visio Online. This way the entire organization can be involved in the diagramming process. The create and edit capabilities of Visio are not included in Office 365 subscriptions, and require a license of either Visio Online Plan 1 or Visio Online Plan 2, comparisons of which can be found here: Comparison of Visio 1 and 2
