Bringing collaboration to your desktop

Microsoft Office 2021 is one of the most popular productivity suites in the market. It's a robust document management system created to help users organize and manage their documents, work with others on shared documents, and share content in new ways. Microsoft Office 2021 has three main focuses:

  • Collaboration: your documents are always up-to-date with the latest changes made by others in real time, so you never have to worry about losing track of a file or needing to redo your work.

  • Organization: you can easily find documents using searchable tags and metadata that make sense for your organization.

  • Offline access: you can now work on documents while you're offline, and when you reconnect to the internet, the changes will automatically sync back to the cloud. It is also compatible with the Microsoft Office 365 platform.

Microsoft Office 2021 is targeted at education, individuals, and small businesses. It's available for purchase as a retail product or through an education subscription.

Main modules

Microsoft Office 2021 is a complete set of all-in-one apps that work together to help you get things done. It has the following main modules: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access.

  • Word: Write, format, and share documents with others.

  • Excel: Create spreadsheets, charts, and graphs.

  • PowerPoint: Make presentations that engage and inform.

  • OneNote: Capture ideas, notes, meetings, and more in one place.

  • Outlook: Manage your email, calendars, and contacts - all in one place.

  • Publisher: Design professional-looking publications in minutes.

  • Access: Create databases, forms, and reports.  

What's new in Microsoft Office 2021 for Mac?

In Microsoft Office 2021, you'll find new co-authoring features like simultaneous editing of documents, inking tools that help your ideas come to life, data types and functions for spreadsheets unlike any other application has ever seen before, and translation and editing tools that are the best in class.

Subscription versions

There are three prior versions of Microsoft Office 2021:

  • Microsoft Office Professional 2021. The most comprehensive version includes all the features of the other versions with additional tools like PowerPoint Designer and Excel Data Modeling. This is ideal for professionals who want to do more than just create documents or spreadsheets.

  • Microsoft Office Home and Business 2021. This version includes all the features found in Microsoft Office Professional but also adds Access Database Engine. It's great for small businesses that need database management capabilities.

  • Microsoft Office Home and Student 2021. This version is designed for students and homeschoolers who need to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations but don't have any advanced needs like database management or project management tools like Visio or Project Manager from other versions of Microsoft Office.


Microsoft Office 2021 is a great all-in-one productivity suite for anyone looking for an easy way to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. It has the same features as its predecessors but adds improved compatibility with other versions of Office that allow you to share files more efficiently than ever before.
