Microsoft Office 2021 is Coming on October 5

Microsoft Office 2021 will come alongside Office Long Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) and Windows 11.

New Features

The new Microsoft Office brings updated versions of Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint. 

Users can also enjoy the translation, editing and inking tools, motion graphics, and an overall visual refresh. The Record Slide show has also been improved.

The package comes with new search functions, too: Excel gets an XMATCH feature,  Outlook gets an Instant Search function, and Microsoft Search will help users navigate all apps.

Office 2021 also comes with a dark mode.

Users get to purchase the new package for one computer at a set price – no subscription needed. Microsoft markets it towards people that are not ready to move to cloud-based solutions.

The Differences Between Office 2021 and Office LTSC

The new versions of the productivity suite share many of the same versions, although Office LTSC is more case-specific. It’s for:

  • regulated devices, unable to get feature updates
  • process control devices on the manufacturing floor
  • systems that don’t have internet access

LTSC doesn’t come with AI automation. It’s also not meant to be a collaboration software

Both Office 2021 and Office LTSC will be available for Windows and macOS.


Devoted my whole life to words - reading, writing and trying to be original on social media. Got certified in digital marketing - still not cool enough to be an influencer. Finished a master’s degree focused in Literature, Publishing, Mass Media. Hobbies include traveling, reading and hoping that yoga will be the thing to finally teach me some patience. Would like to take over the world at some point, but that’s an optional dream. Maybe modern tech can help me do that?
