Microsoft Office Arrives For All Google Play Store-Enabled Chromebooks

Microsoft Office Finally Arrives on Chromebooks Everywhere

Though Office was previously open to Chromebooks via Microsoft's free browser-based version, getting the official apps is significant. Despite several Chromebooks being able to download and install the Office apps when Google opened up the Play Store to the laptop products, for many other Chromebooks they weren't available.

Microsoft Office support for Chromebooks has until now been spotty at best.

It is for the first time that office is available for Chromebook users through Google Play in terms of general release. It was Chrome Unboxed to first spot the arrival of office through Google Play on Chromebooks. Before now, users have been relegated to Google Docs and other Google apps - as well as a handful of Android apps and/or Chrome apps for all their document needs.

Online Black Friday sales top $1.52 billion, less frenzy at United States stores
That nearly certainly front-loaded some brick-and-mortar sales that may otherwise have occurred over the Thanksgiving weekend. They've also made a big push toward offering store pickup for online orders, hoping to get people to pick up more items.

Things began to change in 2017, when the company promised that all new 2017 Chromebook launches would support Google Play. The publication checked common Chromebooks such as the Samsung Chromebook Pro, Pixelbook, two different models of Acer Chromebook 15, and the Acer C771. Some Chromebooks have worked flawlessly with Office apps for over a year. Well, the wait is now over and ALL Chromebooks can now run Microsoft Office.

Users with devices who have screens that are 10.1 inches or larger will need Office 365 subscription in order to be able to use Android apps. Chromebook owners assumed that the mobile version of Office (which has since been split into separate apps) would work on all Chrome OS devices.

Of course, Google's G Suite is still the more likely choice for a number of Chromebook users, but the ability to use Microsoft Office on a Chromebook makes them a potentially more viable option for businesses using Microsoft's software.
