What is Microsoft Office 2019?
Microsoft Office 2019 is the latest software developed by Microsoft and released for the general public in Feb 2019. Well it won’t be wrong to say that office is basically a suite of multiple apps for productivity introduced by Microsoft for users around the globe. Microsoft Office 2019 can be purchased online from the official website after choosing the best suited subscription as per the user requirements.
History of MS Office
Microsoft Office was first introduced to public in 1982, to be more precise the first application which was developed by Microsoft was MS Excel, and back then It was called Microsoft Multiplan. It was used to make spreadsheets only and later in 1985 the name was changed to Excell.
While Office 2019 has some of Office 365 features such as Learning Tools included in Word and Outlook, new Morph and Zoom in Powerpoint, and “Microsoft Ink”, it lacks most of Office 365 new features.
What to choose between 2019 or office 365?
Well both office 2019 and 365 do the same things but there are various features which are not included in office 2019, Also it won’t be wrong to mention that one should choose office 365. In-fact Microsoft has officially also announced that users should not choose office 2019 rather go for office 365.
To simply understand this there are multiple reasons to why you should choose office 365 over office 2019. To be honest I would myself choose the 365 version because this version is based on cloud that means i will have access to my docs, presentations, excel sheets wherever i want and whatever device i am loged-in into on the go.
Office 2019, is missing a whole lot of features that are only available via the Office 365 subscription online. So the Microsoft wants it’s customers to avail the best features.
So what is the need of 2019 version?
Well to answer this question, Microsoft understands and knows that there are still some organisations which aren’t yet ready to move to the cloud based services. So that’s why they developed the offline version Office 2019.
“For many customers, Office 365 is the way to go. It’s the most secure, intelligent and collaborative version of Office.” Microsoft wrote in its Office 2019 FAQ.
Where to buy and activate office?
Office 2019 is available both in-store and online on the official Microsoft website and its resellers/ affiliates and after the purchase you will receive a product key in your email which then you need to activate, to activate the product key Goto Activation page and use you existing Microsoft account to sign-in and activate.
If you want to know more about how to activate the office product key, checkout my post: How to redeem the product key of Microsoft Office.
To conclude, I would like to say that although Microsoft has a number of products for the customers, it’s still working every day to develop new software and services for the people. There-by making lives easier around the globe. No doubt Microsoft is a giant in the Tech industry.
