On October 5th, Microsoft will release Office 2021, the next consumer edition of its productivity suite. On the same day, Microsoft will release Windows 11. Office 2021, like Office 2019, will be a one-time purchase that will be available on both Windows and macOS. It’s for consumers who don’t want to pay for Microsoft 365 by the company.
Microsoft promised to provide more information on Office 2021 shortly, but according to reports, the release will include many of the same changes found in Office LTSC, a version of the software launched today for commercial customers who don’t have access to the Cloud. It provides accessibility features and dark mode support, among other things. We also know that Microsoft expects to support the programme for at least five years and that it will function with both 32- and 64-bit systems out of the box, according to a previous announcement.
