Microsoft announced an update to its consumer productivity suite, Office 2021, along with the alternative Especially business oriented, the Office Long Term Service channel.

Like its predecessor, Office 2019, Office 2021 is Microsoft’s standalone option for people who don’t want to purchase a cloud-enabled Microsoft 365 subscription. Office 2021 is slated to roll out later this year for both Mac and WindowsMicrosoft 365 Vice President Jared Spataro at one of the companies said Blog post Thursday. Meanwhile, Office LTSC will be available as a commercial preview beginning in April on both Mac and Windows, with a full release scheduled for later this year.

Microsoft will provide support for both products for a period of five years, which is a slight reduction from the seven-year warranty provided with earlier Office products. Each will come with OneNote and ship in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The one-time purchase price will remain the same for both personal and small business users, although there will be a 10% increase in prices for Office Professional Plus and Office Standard purchases, and for individual Office app purchases.

These scenarios include where users are located on controlled devices that cannot receive monthly updates, or process controllers on manufacturing floors that cannot connect to the Internet, or SpecialSystems that have to be kept closed in a timely manner and require a long term service channel.

He told the outlet, “We definitely have a lot of clients who have migrated to the cloud in the past 10 months, and it really happened collectively.” “At the same time, we definitely have clients with specific scenarios where they don’t feel they can move to the cloud.”

Microsoft has previously maintained that even with Advertising pushed To impress Users to move to the cloud, She plans to follow up Rolling out Standalone and permanent licenses for their Office tools In the foreseeable future. aThe second is based on the company’s announcement todayEMS is committed to this promise.
