Microsoft Office is finally on all Chromebooks (with a catch)

Microsoft Office Finally Arrives on Chromebooks Everywhere

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. While users will need to subscribe to office 365 to take advantage of office Android apps, users with specific devices will be able to use these same apps for free. As of now, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Excel are available on all Chromebooks.

After a long wait time, Microsoft's Office apps are now finally available on all Chromebooks - though it'll be useless if you have a larger Chromebook.

Android app support arrived on Chromebooks well over a year ago although the rollout wasn't exactly universal.

Similar to the lack of information on when Microsoft Office for Chromebooks will be launched, Microsoft has apparently rolled out the software quietly. The Samsung Chromebook Pro, for example, has a 12.3-inch display, which puts it in the paid bracket. That left some to wonder if the apps' arrival was still forthcoming, while others explored workarounds. For some reason, the Office suite worked on only a few Chromebooks. (A list of which select devices are able to run Google Play is available here). Chromebook owners assumed that the mobile version of Office (which has since been split into separate apps) would work on all Chrome OS devices. You need an Office 365 subscription to actually save and edit a document, but if you're paying the $7-per-month fee, you can now fire up the apps on a Chromebook.

Neither Microsoft nor Google have had anything official to say about this just yet, and we don't know for certain that it is open to every Chromebook product, but this does so far seem to be the case (and Microsoft had been working on wider support). The other is Windows 10 S - the streamlined version of Windows 10 the company is positioning as its Chrome OS competitor.
