Microsoft is reportedly abandoning assistance for its Office apps on Chromebooks. A new report states that the company requires Chromebook users to change over to the web versions of these apps. Will incorporate this decision in mid-September, and while Microsoft will no longer support the apps, they will continue to function.
Chromebook users can download Microsoft’s Office apps from the Google Play store and use all of its peculiarities, though the web experience with the Microsoft 365 service gives more enhanced functionality.
According to an emailed receipt cited by TechCrunch, Microsoft said that starting September 18, it will concerts Microsoft apps into web experiences for Chromebook users. It means that after September 18, Microsoft will stop supporting Office apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook, so they won’t be updated or optimized any further. Rather, Microsoft requires Chromebook users to switch to the web translations of these apps for the “most optimized experience.”
