Microsoft Office 2021 will officially be made available to consumers from the 5th October 2021. This ties in with the release schedule of Windows 11 which is also set for the same date. Office 2021 is a one-time purchase designed to offer Office apps for one computer at a single, up-front cost unlike Microsoft 365 which brings a cloud-based productivity experience.
Pricing details about Office 2021 are also not announced at this moment.
Alongside Office 2021, Microsoft is releasing Windows 11 on October 5 as its next-generation operating system for PCs. The new Windows version will include a list of interface-level changes as well as enhancements including an integrated Teams experience. It is also announced to provide Android apps support, but that will not be a part of the initial release.
