On February 19, Microsoft announced it will release Office 2021 later in the year.
It will have two types: the consumer and Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) versions. The LTSC variant is for commercial customers and will have a longer support period – five years – than the consumer category. However, this is a downgrade from the seven years of support that previous Office versions offered.
While Office 365 continues to gain ground, some users are not interested in switching to the cloud. Microsoft has released Office 2021 to cater to this set of users. And apart from being compatible with Windows and macOS, it will also have both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
The tech giant plans to release both in the second half of the year, although there will be a preview of Office LTSC in April.
