If you buy Microsoft Office 2019, it will be yours for good and you are entitled to the maintenance and security updates for as long as Microsoft still supports the product. If you want more advanced features and updates that contain new functionalities, then you should grab Office 365 instead and keep paying for it on a regular basis until you don’t need it anymore.
However, choosing Office 365 just for the sake of more features seems to be just wasting a lot of money. You should see all of the features that you can get from Microsoft Office 2019 and stick to it if they already cover what you need.
Features and Highlights
The Clip Art functionality had been taken down in favor of Online Pictures not long after Microsoft Office 2016 was released to the public. The previous functionality contained tons of clip arts that users can download from Microsoft’s server, while the Online Pictures gives you the access to the millions of pictures on the web. Using Bing as the search engine, the Online Pictures allows you to search, download, and insert any image into a document.
After playing with the 3D models, perhaps you will be less upset about the removal of the clip arts, perhaps you will stop thinking that the Online Pictures is just another hidden ploy to push Bing so that more users use it. The 3D models are cool. They look like nothing more than just 3D clip arts, but there are some customization features that make them a lot more interesting. For example, you can make it so that the face of a smiley icon points to a different direction.
If you often deal with multiple languages, you can use the Translator pane in Word 2019 to translate any word or phrase. The feature is powered by the same artificial intelligence used to support Smart Lookup. It works by automatically identifying the language of the selected words and then translate them to the language that you choose. If it misidentifies the language of the words, you can change the language manually.
For some of you who use touch-enabled devices, Ink Editor may be an important feature that you cannot live without. Pressure sensitivity and tilt effects are parts of Microsoft Office 2019 new inking functionalities. On normal screen, even though it is not easy, it is still possible to take advantage of the inking feature by drawing with your mouse.

Office 365 is arguably better than Microsoft Office 2019, but many people simply do not want to pay based on a subscription model. In this case, Microsoft Office 2019 with its one-time payment scheme is a better solution. Not every one in a dire need for the cloud-based capabilities nor the extra shiny features that Office 365 offers.
Not every one likes the idea of storing all files in the cloud as well due to some privacy concern that appear due to the lack of trust to the big companies in general that keep saying they care about privacy yet mostly are only lip services.
