Microsoft is gearing up to launch the first stable version of the Windows 11 operating system on October 5th. Together with it, users will have access to a new office suite of applications, which will be able to interact with both within the Microsoft 365 subscription and by purchasing and downloading the local version of Office 2021. A few days before this event, the developers toldthat new users should expect from the office suite, and also informed how much it will cost.
First of all, it should be noted that Office 2021 has received support for a number of collaboration tools that were already available in Microsoft 365. Now users of Office 2021 will have access to the Microsoft Teams service for personal use, so that they can communicate with anyone, including video. … At the same time, there will be support for co-editing office documents in real time with the ability to use the OneDrive cloud space for storing data. Users just need to log into Office 2021 with their Microsoft account to get 5 GB of OneDrive cloud storage for free.
There have been changes to the look and feel of the Microsoft 365 and Office 365 user interface. The interface elements have been updated to better fit the modern design style and help users stay focused on getting things done. The developers used a neutral color palette, rounded window corners, colorful presence indicators and much more, which together make the office suite a convenient and productive tool for interacting with documents. Office suite application themes now automatically adapt to Windows dark or light mode. In addition, each of the office applications received some less noticeable improvements and new features.
