Microsoft rolls out Windows 11 update

Microsoft has already started rolling out Windows 11, the latest upgrade to a popular operating system (OS), across the world.

While Microsoft is officially launching Windows 11 powered hardware, along with a consumer version of its latest Office 2021 suits and Microsoft 365, the much-coveted success of the operating system came a few hours earlier. This means that only a few users may have the option to start upgrading to Windows 11 in starting phase. However, but for most users across the globe, the Windows 11 rollout will be slow. Microsoft told Verge earlier that all eligible Windows 10 devices will receive the Windows 11 update by mid-2022. Still, new hardware (recently-purchased computers) may be able to receive the update immediately.

Features of Office 2021:

Microsoft Office 2021, the latest succession of the family of productivity applications called an office "suite," is also set to roll out Tuesday for businesses, clients, and consumers. The updated apps include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access, Project, Publisher, and Visio, all receiving a marked overhaul in aesthetics.

In a preview earlier this year, Microsoft showed off the new dynamic arrays and XLOOKUP features in Excel, the dark mode support across multiple apps, and several performance-related improvements in Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Outlook. The Redmond-based company said that the new Office 2021 suite is for those users who want to avoid the subscription-based service of Microsoft 365 or the web-based cloud applications.
