Microsoft unveiled its next version of Office suite, the Office 2019last year during its ‘Ignite’ conference in September. At the time of the launch the Redmond-based tech firm showed a slew of new features that will be arriving with Office 2019. Also mentioned was that Office 2019 will be arriving in the second half of this year. While all this left several fans excited, a new set of details may bring down those excitement levels.
The firm announced some changes to Office and Windows servicing and support recently. In the dedicated post, Bernardo Caldas, General Manager for Windows, and Jared Spataro, General Manager for Office, Microsoft dropped a bad news on the compatibility of Office 2019
It was mentioned that Office 2019 won’t be hitting those PCs who are running any OS version later than Windows 10. Under the title, the company said that the new version will be supported on any Windows 10 SAC release and Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018. So those of you who have Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 running PCs are out of luck.
Furthermore, Microsoft has revised the support lifecycle for Office 2019. The suite of apps will get 5 years of mainstream support and approximately 2 years of extended support.
The new Office version will include the upgraded Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook apps. It will also include perpetual versions of Exchange, SharePoint and Skype for Business.Some of the features mentioned by the company include improved inking features—like pressure sensitivity, tilt effects and more, new formulas and charts in Excel, Visual animation features—like Morph and Zoom in PowerPoint. “Office 2019 will be a valuable upgrade for customers who feel that they need to keep some or all of their apps and servers on-premises,” said Jared Spataro, general manager, Office, Microsoft.
