Thanks to the Play Store, Microsoft Office arrives on Chromebooks

Through the sorcery of the Play Store, the central Microsoft Office apps have arrived on Chromebooks. It has been a prolonged tour to get here, with pointless particular Chromebook models gaining and losing Office support for the past year, but now, according to a report from Chrome Unboxed, the Office apartment is live on all Chromebooks. You need an Office 365 subscription to actually save and revise a document, but if you’re profitable the $7-per-month fee, you can now fire up the apps on a Chromebook.

The Play Store on Chromebooks brings Android apps to the before “Web only” platform. For Microsoft Office, this means Chromebook users get the Android inscription chronicle of Word, Excel, Outlook, and Powerpoint. Unlike scarcely every other Android inscription app in existence, Microsoft’s inscription apps are actually great! They offer a big-screen optimized interface that looks a lot like the Windows apps but with a smaller underline set. The Office apps are actually way better than Google’s own Drive apps on a tablet, which are just stretched-out phone apps (although on Chromebooks, you’d use the Drive website.)
