After several months of waiting, we finally know what is the date on which Office 2021 for Mac will hit the market. The date selected by Microsoft is October 5. The main novelty that this new version offers us is that users will be able to purchase a license independently, that is, that it will not be necessary to pay a monthly subscription as before.
During the pandemic, collaboration tools have become the most used, and Office 2021 has focused much of its novelties on this functionality. Office 2021 presents new collaboration tools aimed at to help users work together either through Microsoft 365, Office 2021, office.com and even in the Office mobile app.
Working together on a document in real time will allow teams to work remotely on the same documents thus reducing the need to send emails, files or share documents separately.
Microsoft Teams allows you to connect with your family and friends with one click. You can create a virtual room, a family room or ask the family to help you with your homework. Microsoft Teams is included in Windows 11 and is included in Office 2021 for all users who do not have it installed and want to use it.
