Well, the title says pretty much all: I do not have such a plan available at the moment, but I need to understand if that plan includes the Picture Library Slideshow Web Part out-of-the-box.

I'm planning to add that webpart on pages in the public facing website of an Office 365 account for a school (again, this is not yet available).

I've searched around, but I was only able to find partial answers, like on this O365 help page where it says "Applies to", or this technet article on plans (but there's no mention on webparts).

Is there a way to find out this for sure (by means of some reference page)?

  • I am looking for the same answer. Have you found out yet?

Well, this is what we found by way of experimenting:

We started a trial SPO with A2 Education license. That web part was not included by default in such a plan. But then we were able to grab a copy of the web part file (it was freely available from some Microsoft page, I don't have the URL right now) and upload it in the Intranet Web Part gallery.

At that point, the web part was available in the site for use.
