Office Puts New Sheen on Chrome

Chrome devices have become much more appealing to business and public sector users now that Microsoft is allowing owners to use the Office suite for Android on their machines.

For devices with displays of 10.1-inches or less, anyone that has a full subscription on any other platform will be able to have full and free access to Office 365 on their Chrome OS device. These users will then be able to create, edit and print documents as normal. Users with larger Chrome machines will be able to access a restricted version of the productivity suite.

It is already possible for Chrome OS to run Android apps and access the Google Play Store and with the Office 365 access available as well, Chromebooks and other Chrome OS devices are a much more attractive proposition for everyday business use. It makes it easier to use a Chrome device offline and will make premium more appealing to business users.
