Microsoft Slated to Push Office 2021 Soon

Office 2021

Microsoft is gearing up to refresh Office 2021 with immediate effect. However, the availability of Office 2021 will be limited to commercial usage. It will be made available for personal and Office LTSC users with commercial licenses for both Windows and macOS operating platforms. The Redmond-based software giant has not yet revealed any plans to release Office 2021 for personal users.

According to reports, the Office 2021 LTSC version will launch with advanced functionalities such as Dark Mode, Dynamic arrays, XLOOKUP in Excel including changes to Word, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, and PowerPoint. The Windows manufacturer will also ship with enhanced accessibility features.

Commenting on the development, Jared Spataro, Microsoft 365 head revealed that it’s just a matter of time and customers will move ahead with the cloud-based tool. He added that several customers have already moved to the cloud on a fast pace. Spataro claims that few customers don’t feel the need to migrate to the cloud because of various reasons and scenarios such as operating cost, learning curve, and much more.

The upcoming Office 2021 and Office LTSC will enable users and organizations to keep track of the latest advancements in the Office productivity tool. Moreover, the update will also help those users and enterprise companies who haven’t yet moved to cloud infrastructure. Microsoft claims that users are in the process of migrating to the cloud infrastructure products such as Microsoft 365. There are cases where users were unable to move to the cloud because of lack of resources.

The Office productivity tool has undergone significant changes over the past several years. The arrival of Microsoft 365 has reduced the consumption of standalone Office software because of its easy access over the web. However, there are still users who depend upon standalone Office for performing daily home and office work.
