NIX Solutions: Office 2024 – What to Expect

Microsoft is gearing up to unveil Office 2024, a new iteration of its popular suite of applications. Unlike previous versions, Office 2024 will offer a non-subscription-based model, catering to users who prefer a one-time payment option and the flexibility to work offline.

The preview version of Office 2024 is set to launch next month, with the stable release scheduled for later this year. While specific details about the enhancements are yet to be disclosed, Microsoft has hinted at significant updates. For instance, Excel is slated to receive numerous new features, such as dynamic charts. Additionally, Outlook’s search and meeting tools have been revamped for improved functionality.

Compatibility and Pricing

Office 2024 will be compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems, supporting Windows 11, Windows 10, and macOS. The LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel) edition will be available for purchase as a one-time payment, targeting corporate clients who require offline functionality. Pricing for Office LTSC 2024 starts at $149, with potential discounts offered by Microsoft.

Future Developments

Despite the anticipation surrounding Office 2024, Microsoft’s decision to exclude the Publisher application and AI tools for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint has raised eyebrows. However, the software giant remains committed to providing essential updates and security patches throughout the product’s lifecycle, notes NIX Solutions.
