While Chromebooks are in the market for a long time, they are far from the computers that can meet demands for extensive computing power. However, Google tried to change the perception as the search engine giant recently introduced its Pixelbook with solid specifications. However, although Chrome OS has come a long way since its earlier days, industry experts have said that the OS’ lack of certain software and features are key reasons from the device being classified as a proper laptop. Earlier today, Chromebooks got a solid boost as all of the Chromebooks will now support Microsoft’s Android Office apps.
Although Microsoft has lost its control over the market with its office suite business, the company still has a great chunk of market. Moreover, while there are alternatives to Microsoft’s services when it comes to company’s office suite, a large number of users still use Microsoft Office to meet their everyday needs. As a result, the latest support will cater those users who want to use the Chromebook to complete most of their tasks.
While it is certainly great news for every Chromebook user, you might need to wait a while before you can use the Microsoft Office with Chromebook. In case you didn’t know, Google has started rolling out support for Google Play in Chromebooks earlier today meaning you might need to wait few more days to use applications installed from Play Store. While support for Microsoft Office is certainly worthwhile, it is just once piece of missing software which are keeping Chrome OS from being a solid operating system. We will have to wait to find out if Google introduces support for other popular software for its Chromebooks.
