  • There is no difference earlier excel was a Service Application up to SharePoint 2013. After they removed as a Service Application in SharePoint 2016 & 2019 and moved it to Office Online Server.

  • Hi will, 

    As Sharath said, excel service has been deprecated in SharePoint 2016 & 2019, but the important features that it provided have been moved to Office Online Server 2016 & 2019.  

    SharePoint Online offers inline editing functionality out of the box way. However when it comes to the SharePoint On-Premises environment, we had to install Office Web Apps in the past (SharePoint 2013 days) for this purpose. Later in SharePoint 2016, Office Online Server was introduced. OOS is the successor to Office Web Apps Server 2013. SharePoint 2019 continues to use Office Online Server.

    Comparing Excel Services and Excel Web App (SharePoint 2013) for your reference:
