Microsoft Office can now be downloaded on all Chromebooks

Kristine Garrett | 27 November, 2017, 12:29

While it has not been possible to check every single Chromebook that's available, it does appear that Microsoft Office can now be downloaded from Google Play on every Chromebook that has been tested.

I'm sure many people buying a Chromebook already use Google Docs, but for the group of people looking to buy one without switching ecosystems, this is a massive selling point.

Last year, Google announced that it would be bringing Android apps to ChromeOS in order to make their laptops and hybrids more versatile. But these apps weren't made available for all Chromebooks, though the reasons are unknown.

Following comments online that Microsoft Office was available on all Chromebooks with Google Play support, Chrome Unboxed has investigated the situation, confirming that it can be installed on a whole bunch of devices. But there hasn't been any official announcement from the company. There are several reports on Reddit of success as well.

It's great news for anyone who has been put off the idea of using a Chromebooks because they couldn't use their favorite software.

"If you have a 10.1" Chromebook (or smaller, if those exist), you can create and edit documents for free after logging in with a Microsoft account. An Office 365 subscription is also another requirement, otherwise, you won't be able to get your hands on these apps.

So overall, its a good news for Chromebook users. But just to check whether its working on your device then download it and check. Now no worries regarding the use of Microsoft apps.
