Microsoft is releasing a non-subscription Office suite for both Windows and Mac in 2021

Microsoft has slipped in a solitary line that will undoubtedly make the individuals who hate paying subscription charges for Office applications happy. “Microsoft Office will also see a new perpetual release for both Windows and Mac, in the second half of 2021,” the tech giant’s Exchange group composed (as spotted by Windows Central), affirming that a new version of Office you can buy with a one-time payment is coming one year from now.

The organization has been pushing Microsoft 365 throughout recent years as the principle approach to get its Office applications. This subscription-based version of its suite gives you access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and different applications for a monthly payment. While you can use some of those applications for free online with a Microsoft account, you won’t have the option to install them on your PC like you’d have the option to in the event that you pay for a subscription.

On the off chance that you’d preferably pay only once for Word, Excel and PowerPoint, you can at present get Office 2019 for $150. In any case, it stayed unclear for a long while in the event that it would be the last never-ending release and if Microsoft would change to a subscription just model for the Office suite. Fortunately, that won’t be the situation — in any event for the short term. Microsoft didn’t uncover whatever else about the up and coming never-ending release other than it’s coming out one year from now, however it vowed to declare more insights regarding its valuing and accessibility “later.”
