Microsoft has announced Office 2021, which is set to come to Windows and macOS devices later this year. This version is designed for those who don’t want to subscribe to the cloud-based Microsoft 365.
There aren’t a lot of details about the features and changes with Office 2021 yet, but it’s reported to arrive in two versions: a consumer version and Office LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel) for commercial customers. Moreover, UI will mostly look the same, save for dark mode.
Office 2021 is designed for devices that cannot accept feature updates for years at a time or those that are not connected to the internet. It’s basically made for those who don’t need to move their work to the cloud. As Microsoft says, it is committed to serving customers who prefer one-time purchase software.
Furthermore, Office LTSC will be supported for five years instead of seven. Office 2021 will ship on both Windows and Mac with the OneNote app. For Windows, it will be available for both 32- and 64-bit versions.
