Microsoft Office 2021 will launch alongside Windows 11 on October 5


Microsoft today announced that the 2021 version of its Microsoft Office will launch on October 5. The launch schedule for this new version of Microsoft Office is the same as the launch of Windows 11, which also takes place on October 5.

For those who don’t know, instead of offering a cloud-based experience present on Microsoft 365, Office 2021 offers Office apps after a one-time purchase for a one-time cost.

To add to this, Microsoft also announced the availability of its Microsoft Office LTSC or Long Term Servicing Channel for macOS and Windows.

What is Windows LTSC?

In case you were wondering, LTSC is an enterprise version of Office 2021 available for government and commercial customers.

This announcement comes to us via a Microsoft blog post, in which it was announced that Office 2021 and Office LTSC will arrive on October 5.

The announcement of LTSC and Microsoft Office 2021 came in February, with both services being touted as the next generation of Microsoft’s productivity suite.

The versions aim to provide standalone access to Office applications through a single payment system with five years of support. Both will not receive feature updates, which is common for Microsoft 365.

Curious users will be happy to know that LTSC brings features like XLOOKUP in Excel, dynamic tables, dark mode in all applications, and improvements in Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word. Microsoft Teams Client will also be present.

Microsoft is launching Windows 11 on October 5 as a next-generation operating system for PCs and laptops. The Windows version will come with interface related changes such as a new taskbar user interface and several new improvements. Support for Android apps will also be coming soon.

Is Microsoft’s Windows 11 Coming to Laptops Soon?

In other news, Honor will soon launch the MagicBook V 14, which the company says will be the first laptop to run Windows 11 out of the box. This particular news comes as Honor announces strategic partnership with Microsoft.

The announcement does not reveal any specifications of the laptop, but by the name we can say that this new laptop will be the first in the Honor V laptop series and the screen will be 14 inches in size.

Some rumors about the product suggest chances of a 5MP dual front camera, a first for laptops, but, for full features and pricing, it looks like we’ll have to wait.
