Reports started circulating over the summer that Microsoft was thinking about killing support for the Android Office apps on Chromebook. While news on that front was quiet for a while, it turns out Microsoft is indeed ending support for those apps.
About Chromebooks spoke with Microsoft regarding the Android Office applications, and it turns out the company is moving Chromebook users over to the web Office experiences.
Starting next month, Chromebook support for Office Android apps will end. Unfortunately, this means that Office on the web will be the only way Chromebook users will take advantage of Office and everything it offers.
