The new update will help users and organizations that have not moved to the cloud network infrastructure to stay up to date with the latest features.
This year, Microsoft will be updating Office 2021. The software giant will introduce an updated Office 2021 for personal users and Office LTSC (Long Term Servicing Channel) for commercial use. Office 2021 can be purchased at a one-time cost from www.office.com/setup.
According to a report by XDA Developers, Microsoft is not planning to increase the cost of the new Office 2021 for personal users. The report suggests that the LTSC version will be launched with features such as new dark mode, Dynamic Arrays, and XLOOKUP in Excel, as well as smaller changes across all popular apps, including Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint. The company will also introduce enhanced accessibility features. The list of features on Office 2021 has not been confirmed by Microsoft.
New Office Update (Office 2021)
The new update will help users and organizations that have not moved to the cloud infrastructure implemented by Microsoft 365 to stay up to date with the latest features. The company argued that many users are still in the process of migrating to the cloud or are unable to move to cloud technology due to a lack of resources. In the Verge report, Jared Spataro, head of Microsoft 365, said, “It’s just a matter of trying to meet customers wherever they are. We have certainly had a lot of customers who have moved to the cloud infrastructure over the last 10 months, and that has really happened en masse. At the same time, we certainly have customers who have specific scenarios where they don’t feel like they can move to the cloud.”
In addition, the company added that the pricing of Office 2021 for personal and small businesses will not change at the time of release.
