  • Microsoft office apps

As of now, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Excel are available on all Chromebooks.

Last year, Google released the capability to install Android apps in select Chromebooks.

Microsoft Office apps are now finally supported by Chrome OS, which powers Chromebooks such as Google's Pixelbook. Microsoft had said a year ago that it will make Microsoft Office apps in full Android versions which will be available to all devices which are compatible.

Through the magic of the Play Store, the official Microsoft Office apps have arrived on Chromebooks.

"So, like we do, we checked every Chrome OS device we have and can confirm they all show every Office app in the Play Store ready for download", says Robby Payne of Chrome Unboxed. However in 2017, Google promised all launches of Chromebook in 2017 will support Google Play. The Samsung Chromebook Pro, for example, has a 12.3-inch display, which puts it in the paid bracket.

Office apps have always been corralled to only a particular set of Chromebooks, with no apparent rules or reason behind it. (A list of which select devices are able to run Google Play is available here).

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.

However, for those who own Chromebooks with larger screens, users will need to have an Office 365 subscription to be able to edit Microsoft Office documents. At that time, Chrome Unboxed contacted Microsoft to clarify the situation, and Microsoft responded by stating that support for Microsoft Office was in the works for Chromebooks, but some kinks had to be worked out.
