  • Microsoft Office Finally Arrives on Chromebooks Everywhere

Microsoft had said past year that it will make Microsoft Office apps in full Android versions which will be available to all devices which are compatible. But we understand the Office Android apps will only be free to users with specific devices, while others will need to subscribe to Office 365 to take advantage of the apps.

We give a lot more in-depth advice on buying a Chromebook with a list of the best models to buy, and you can check out Google's site which explains which apps you can use on a Chromebook to replace those you might use on a PC or Mac. When the first Android compatible Chromebooks came out, some were able to run Office apps, and some weren't.

27 million UK Uber customers affected by hack
Washington law requires both affected consumers and the attorney general's office to be notified within 45 days of the breach. Now, after some further digging, it seems that 2.7 million of those affected were Uber customers from the UK.

Similar to the lack of information on when Microsoft Office for Chromebooks will be launched, Microsoft has apparently rolled out the software quietly. Some Chromebooks have worked flawlessly with Office apps for over a year.

While there hasn't been any official word from Microsoft that Office is ready to go for all Chromebooks, there have been plenty of reports of the Office suite working on multiple devices. You can download those apps on your Android-based phone or tablet right now, but Chromebooks run Android apps as well.

3-year-old girl abducted from Jacksonville
Woods also revealed that her daughter has to wear orthopedic leg braces and worries that she won't be able to walk without them. Their search is primarily focused on the land behind the houses where the 3-year-old went missing.

Since that statement, though, no update has been offered by Microsoft on the state of support for Microsoft Office in Chromebooks.

However, for those who own Chromebooks with larger screens, users will need to have an Office 365 subscription to be able to edit Microsoft Office documents. It then delivered on that promise when devices like Samsung's new Chromebook and, more recently, Google's flagship Pixelbook arrived. The other is Windows 10 S - the streamlined version of Windows 10 the company is positioning as its Chrome OS competitor.
