Details:

As communicated previously in MC198427 (Dec '19) Office 2016 for Mac and Office 2010 will reach their end of support on October 13, 2020. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide technical support, bug fixes, or security updates for Office 2016 for Mac and Office 2010. You will still be able to use these versions of Office, but over time, organizations may face an increase in security risks and compliance issues. Also, as previously https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/blog/2017/04/20/office-365-proplus-updates/ announced, after October 13, 2020, customers will need to be running Microsoft 365 Apps, Office 2019 or https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/blog/2018/09/06/helping-customers-shift-to-a-modern-desktop/ Office 2016 to connect to Office 365 services. Microsoft will not take any active measures to block legacy versions of the Office client from connecting to Office 365 services, but these older clients may encounter performance and/or reliability issues over time. For related Office client support timelines, see the https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=2111390 style="" Microsoft 365 and Office system requirements matrix.
