Microsoft has unveiled Office 2019, the next perpetual update for Office, which is scheduled for the second half of 2018.
Office 2019 will include perpetual versions of the Office apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
The new version of Office will also include servers, like Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business.
Microsoft said Office 2019 will also add new user and IT capabilities for customers who aren’t ready for the cloud.
“New and improved inking features – like pressure sensitivity, tilt effects, and ink replay – will allow you to work more naturally,” said Microsoft.
“New formulas and charts will make data analysis for Excel more powerful, while visual animation features like Morph and Zoom will add polish to PowerPoint presentations.”
Server enhancements for Office 2019 will include updates to IT manageability, usability, voice, and security.
