Microsoft Office 2021 already has official prices: this is what Microsoft’s new office suite will cost
On October 5, Microsoft will officially launch Windows 11 and, together with the new version of its operating system, Office 2021, the update of its well-known office suite.
There are still a few days left for it and, to liven up the wait, Microsoft has finally confirmed the official prices and some of its main novelties.
Office 2021 prices
As we already knew, Microsoft will continue to bet on perpetual versions, that is, on those versions of Office that are one-time payment. The price of Office Home and Students 2021 is $ 149.99. This version includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Microsoft Teams for PC and Mac.
Office Home and Business 2021 will cost $ 249.99 and will include all of the above, plus Outlook for PC and Mac and the right to use the apps for commercial purposes. The office suite can be purchased from October 5.
However, it is no secret that Microsoft is betting heavily on subscribing to Microsoft 365 which, in his own words, “is the best way to access the latest apps and features.” When we know the official price in euros we will update this article.
It should be noted that Microsoft 365 and Office 2021 will work on Windows 11, Windows 10 and the last three versions of macOS. This is important because, according to Microsoft, Office 2013 will not be supported on Windows 11. Furthermore, Microsoft adds that “to use Microsoft 365 or Office 2021 both a Microsoft account and an Internet connection are required.”
The news coming to Office 2021
One of the main novelties that Microsoft has incorporated into its office suite is the collaboration on documents. For example, to write a Word between several people. This feature is available to all users, regardless of whether they use Microsoft 365, Office 2021, Office.com, or the mobile apps.
Too the interface has been renewed, which is now more modern, with a more neutral color palette, softer corners and a theme that synchronizes with the dark or light mode of our equipment. The apps that have been updated with this design are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access, Project, Publisher y Visio.
Finally, Microsoft has confirmed that it has added some functions that were available in Microsoft 365 to Office 2021, see XLOOKUP, dynamic matrices, translation functions in Outlook, support for ODF 1.3 or a search engine integrated in the apps.
