The updated version includes a number of new features that have already been released to Office 365 subscribers. If you want to keep up to date with the latest software the best way is to purchase an Office 365 subscription.

What are the System Requirements?

Microsoft supports the last three versions of macOS (macOS 10.14 Mojave, 10.13 High Sierra, and 10.12 Sierra) and recommends 4GB Memory plus 10GB of disk space.
