As an LTSC release, Microsoft is bringing its latest Office for companies and government agencies onto the market. This software collection from the Long Term Servicing Channel is the local version of the Office Suite for Windows and macOS. It replaces the volume license version of Office 2019.
Office LTSC is available immediately, as are the Project and Visio licenses. The functions are taken over by the programs in the package from the cloud counterpart 365, an overview can be found on the Microsoft support pages. The group emphasizes that more customers should switch to the 365 variant in the future. Nevertheless, it is not the last local Office release, as Microsoft itself assures.
At the same time, Microsoft is announcing the release date of Office 2021 for end users: It will appear on October 5th. Information on the range of functions and prices is not yet available.
