Microsoft has announced two new versions of Office today – Office 2021 for general customers and Office LTSC for commercial customers. The Office 2021 will be available later this year for both Windows and macOS and will feature a similar rollout to Office 2019. It is designed for those customers who do not want to rely on the cloud for their productivity. It is very similar to Office 365, minus the cloud integration.
Microsoft hasn’t yet revealed all the changes that the new version brings as of yet. However, the Office LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel) will include things like dark mode support, accessibility improvements, and features like Dynamic Arrays and XLOOKUP in Excel. Office 2021 will include similar features.
There are no major UI changes though, except the dark mode of course. Microsoft will focus on UI and cloud-integrated features on its Office 365 version first.
A preview of Office LTSC will come out sometime around April 2021, but there won’t be a preview for the consumer version. Both version will ship with OneNote and include 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
