However, this news has sparked speculation among users that it seems that Microsoft is about to abandon the classic Office brand. The news was refuted by journalist, Paul Thurrott, who found evidence in a Q&A on Microsoft’s official website. Microsoft says in the Q&A that users will continue to have access to regular features. Users will continue to use Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook as part of Microsoft 365. Microsoft will also continue to offer consumers and businesses a one-time purchase of these apps. It will do this through the Office 2021 and Office LTSC programs. Additionally, there are no changes to Office 365 subscription plans.
