In terms of functionality, Office 2021 is expected to be identical to Office Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) which is a locked-down version of Office for machines that do not have internet access.
The Office 2021 what’s new list includes everything from new inking tools to updated features, editing tools, ease of use features and more.
Many will no doubt be delighted to learn that the Office 2021 update list will also include support for dark mode. In addition to improved PowerPoint slide show recording and a host of updated Excel functions, there should be plenty going on to keep you happy and productive.
Microsoft has said it will support Office 2021 for five years, with that support ending in October 2026. The price of Office 2021 will also be the same as Office 2019.
