Microsoft is ending its Office app in Chrome OS. The Android version of the app will leave the Play Store on September 18.
From then on, users will need to sign in to Office.com or Outlook.com via the web to use the Office app. 9 to 5 Google says, Office app will be available on Android phones even if you say goodbye to Chrome OS.
On the other hand, technology blog Engadget has commented that it will not take long for the user to sign in to the web app. However, users on the web will obviously get a lower quality experience than the service that the Android app has provided so far.
Engadget also says that the opportunity for users to get offline access to the office app for so long is almost non-existent in the case of web apps.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The company described the move in a statement as “an effort to give ChromeOS / Chromebook customers the most optimized experience.”
According to Engadget,
whatever the reason, the whole incident will push users to use the G Suite. Excluding Chromebooks can lead to downloading Android apps on Windows 11.
