Microsoft Office Android apps now available on all Chromebooks

Microsoft Office Android apps now available on all Chromebooks

You see, support trickled out initially to a limited selection of devices meaning the experience from one Chromebook to the next isn't necessarily the same.

As Chrome Unboxed correctly highlights, this won't mean new functionality for all. For more people, the first time they've been able to use these apps on their Chromebooks at all, ever.

We've reached out to Microsoft for comment.

Amazon Debuts Sumerian To Help Developers Make VR, AR, 3D Apps
The Sumerian service includes an object library with 3D models along with assistance for importing assets from FBX and OBJ files. Once users have built an experience in Sumerian, it can run on hardware such as the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and iPhone.


The whole Microsoft Office collection of Android apps - for Android devices and Chrome OS devices - can be found over at Google Play. Along with the manufacturers, Chromebook users would also be happy with the apps even if they were satisfied with G Suite. 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.

Chromebooks will finally have Microsoft Office. They were able to confirm that Microsoft Office was able to download on the Play Store for all of the mentioned devices.

Over the past few years, Chromebooks have become much more than cheap laptops running a glorified version of the Google Chrome browser.

With the future of the CFPB's leadership in doubt, both English and Mulvaney are expected to show up at the CFPB on Monday. Former OMB Director Richard Cordray , who was appointed by President Obama, unexpectedly resigned from his post last week.


Microsoft Office will be available free on devices like ASUS' Chromebook Flip (with a 10.1-inch display), but bigger devices will require a subscription. That falls in line with current Microsoft policy of allowing tablet-size devices to run it for free, but forcing users with larger units to pony up some cash to be able to fully unlock the app to create, edit and print documents. The same rule applies to the iPad Pro.

The experience is of course not as good as full desktop office on windows 10, but certainly, for K-12 level it should be more than good enough.
