Microsoft lifetime subscription?

Hello everyone, I would like to ask if Microsoft offers a one-time purchase of their software? One that is updatable so that its features can keep up with the latest? I remember before, we only used an MS Office CD to install the software and can already use it continuously, but now we need to subscribe monthly or yearly. Thanks for those who will answer.

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) uses a subscription model: you pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee, and in exchange you get feature updates, security updates and bug fixes as long as you are subscribed.

Office 2019 is a one-time purchase. You pay once and you can use the software indefinitely, but you only get security updates and bug fixes, no feature updates.


Kind regards, HansV
