Office 2019 is arriving this Fall!
Posted by on
Are you looking to upgrade to the latest and greatest that Microsoft has to offer? Well you should know that if you currently have Office 2016, Microsoft is releasing the next major revision of the non-subscription version of Office, Office 2019, this fall! This is called the "perpetual" version of Office because a user pays a one-time fee and owns the Office product forever, however, users won't get upgrades until the next major version is released. If you're already on Office 365, then you know that subscription requires a monthly or annual subscription fee and is constantly updated. However, you'll still find Office 365 features in Office 2019 regardless of your subscription.
Preview versions of the new applications will be available during the second quarter of the year, but the final version of Office 2019 will be made available in early Fall so be on the lookout!
One thing you should be aware of though with this new release, is that in order for Office 2019 to install and work on your current machine, you'll need Windows 10 and Windows 10 will need to be updated on a semi-annual basis. Office 2019 will not work with prior operating systems, such as Windows 7 or 8.1.
As more information comes out, we'll keep you updated!
