After several months of waiting, Microsoft finally details the various features and prices of Microsoft Office 2021, which will be released on October 5, 2021, the same day as Windows 11. As a reminder, Office 2021 will run on Windows 10 as well as on macOS. Here is all we learned.

Office 2021 available from $ 149.99

Thereby, two versions of Office will be available from October 5 by Microsoft. The first is called Home and Student and is dedicated to individuals. It is announced at $ 149.99. A second edition has been announced, the version Home and Business, with more software and features, at $ 249. The prices should be the same (or almost) in euros.

Once the invoice has been paid, it will not be no need to subscribe to a subscription to take advantage of Word or PowerPoint software. It should be noted that all the novelties are already present on Office 365, which still costs 10 euros per month for a subscription.

According to Microsoft, Office 2021 will especially benefit from many new features in terms of design: everything will be more ventilated and more readable, the whole more ergonomic. We find, moreover, the same visual novelties as on Windows 11, that is to say rounded corners and a neutral color palette.

But not only. Office 2021 will include the collaboration features found in Office 365, including real-time co-creation, OneDrive support and even integration with Microsoft Teams. Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Word will also benefit from significant improvements, which you can all find listed here.

Office 2021 will therefore be available on October 5, 2021, alongside the launch of Windows 11. Microsoft says Office 2021 is supported on Windows 11, Windows 10, and the three most recent versions of macOS.
