Microsoft Office FINALLY Available For ALL Chromebook Users

Microsoft Office is now working on all Chromebooks with Play Store support

Though Office was previously open to Chromebooks via Microsoft's free browser-based version, getting the official apps is significant.

In what appears to be the final chapter in a rather inexplicable saga, Microsoft's Office suite is now compatible with all Google Chromebooks with access to the Google Play store. The Office apps consistently worked on Google's high-end Pixel laptops, but users of more mainstream Chromebooks weren't often so lucky.

The Play Store on Chromebooks brings Android apps to the formerly "web only" platform. It has been a long journey to get here, with random individual Chromebook models gaining and losing Office support for the past year, but now, according to a report from Chrome Unboxed, the office suite is live on all Chromebooks. However in 2017, Google promised all launches of Chromebook in 2017 will support Google Play. Well, the wait is now over and ALL Chromebooks can now run Microsoft Office.

It's also believed that 12 buildings will be knocked down and replaced with 18 buildings instead, many of which are double in height.

Office apps have always been corralled to only a particular set of Chromebooks, with no apparent rules or reason behind it.

Now the Office Android apps for Chromebook are here, but there are a few caveats we should note. Chromebook owners assumed that the mobile version of Office (which has since been split into separate apps) would work on all Chrome OS devices. Editing without a subscription to Office 365 on devices with a 10.1-inch display or smaller is limited, however. This is a remarkable and very surprising move as both the companies Google and Microsoft, offer competing products relating to office productivity software. It then delivered on that promise when devices like Samsung's new Chromebook and, more recently, Google's flagship Pixelbook arrived.
