Office 2019 or Office 365?
You might notice Microsoft now has two different Office-packages: Office 2019 and Office 365. Microsoft positions both software packages next to each other. The main different between the two is the way you purchase the Office applications. With Office 365 it is mandatory to subscribe to an annual or monthly subscription. This is not the case with Office 2019. You simply buy Office 2019 once and then you can make unlimited use of all new applications and features within this software package. You can install an Office 2019 license on one PC or laptop.
There is one slight disadvantage though with Office 2019 when you compare it with office 365. Thanks to the annual subscription fee, Office 365 receives periodic upgrades that improves the software applications. When buying Office 2019, you will only receive the new and improved functions that are available during the release date. However, both versions receive periodic security updates. So you can always use both Office packages without having to worry about security issues.

Then simply ‘write’ and send the message with your voice. How simple and useful is that?
Other improvements are aimed at the calendar-function within Outlook 2019. Persons from different time zones could find it hard to schedule a meeting in previous versions of Outlook. Now you can add different time zones to ‘one’ calendar. This makes it easy to see what time it is in the time zone of different contacts and at what time they are available.
