Microsoft Announces Launch Date for Office 2021

Microsoft will roll out the new Office 2021 for Windows and macOS users on October 5.

The company announced this development at the launch of its next perpetual version of Office for commercial and government users.

This launch, which happened on September 16, gave an insight into what to expect in Office 2021. It includes Dark Mode support for all apps and an improved method for recording slideshows in PowerPoint. It also includes a new XLOOKUP function that improves searching in Excel as well as new functions that use dynamic arrays in Excel. Furthermore, there are new UI updates and a much improved in-app translation for over 70 languages on Outlook, among others.

The company is releasing this version for users who don’t want to subscribe to the cloud based Microsoft 365. As a perpetual release, it won’t have consistent feature updates. Also, it won’t feature real-time collaboration and AI-powered automation for PowerPoint, Word, and Excel that Microsoft 365 has. However, Microsoft will support it for five years.

At the moment, Microsoft has not announced a price for the new product.
