Microsoft Office on a Chromebook

It’s true that you could run Office 365 through the Chrome browser on a Chromebook. But you could not run it offline. That is until now. Office on a Chromebook will allow you to run Microsoft Office 365 apps such as Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint. OneDrive, Teams and even a Bing Browser which looks useful using speech recognition. All these apps can be obtained from Google’s Play Store. And they all run offline ( apart from Bing which needs the internet of course.

This also means the Chromebook has more potential use in schools where WiFi coverage is a problem and therefore a cost effective hardware solution for schools, colleges and universities to consider.
