Microsoft has been offering its Office suite to Chromebook users via the Google Play store since 2017, but that will end in a few weeks. Microsoft will stop supporting Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook) on Chromebooks on September 18, 2021.
- According to Microsoft, “this transition provides Chromebook customers with access to additional and premium features.”
- Chromebooks are powered by Google’s Chrome OS, which is based on Linux. Because Android is built on Linux, Chromebooks can also run Android apps.
- Other mobile devices that run on Andriod, such as tablets and smartphones, are not being abandoned by Microsoft.
