Office Mobile apps on Chromebook — Earlier this week, we expelled a preview of a Office Mobile apps for Google Chromebooks. These apps were creatively designed for Android phones, and they’re not nonetheless entirely optimized for a Chromebook form factor. We’ve finished some initial work on a finish user knowledge and wish to accumulate patron feedback. As with all of a mobile apps, an Office 365 subscription is compulsory to revise papers on inclination with a shade distance of 10.1 inches or greater.
So, there we have it. Microsoft’s central position is that a Office Mobile apps are accessible for Android-enabled Chromebooks and that they are still in a routine of optimizing them for Chrome devices.
As settled above, a 10.1″ order is in effect. Essentially, this means we will need a subscription to Office 365 if we wish to do any form of modifying to your documents. We have seen some reports of OneNote not being concordant with some inclination though it is misleading accurately why. It is probable that a Office Apps will usually implement on touchscreen Chromebooks though we are still researching that during a moment.
