To use Office on your Chromebook, install the Office mobile apps through the Google Play Store. If your Chromebook uses the Chrome Web Store instead, you can install Office Online to create, edit, and collaborate on your Office files in your browser.

Nov 10, 2017  It doesn't have to be a powerful Chromebook to run Windows apps on a Chromebook, although it must have an Intel processor. That's because CrossOver uses Wine, a lightweight program that's been used.


  • To find out which Chromebooks support the Office mobile apps from the Google Play Store, see Chrome OS Systems Supporting Android App.

  • You can’t install the Windows or Mac desktop versions of Office 365 or Office 2016 on a Chromebook.

  • The Android version of OneDrive is not currently supported on a Chromebook.

How to install Office apps on a Chromebook:

  1. Open the Google Play Store and search for the apps you want to install.

    Or you can click on any of these links to download a specific app: Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, OneNote, Office Lens, or Skype for Business.

  2. Click Install.

  3. Once your app(s) are installed, click the Launcher on your Chromebook and click on the app to open it.

  4. Sign in with your personal Microsoft Account or your account associated with your Office 365 subscription. See Install and set up Office on an Android for details on how to sign in to Office on Android.

    Note: You can view files and do basic editing in the Office mobile apps if you're signed in with your Microsoft Account (it's free and you can use an existing email). If you have an Office 365 subscription, you can sign into the app with the account associated with your subscription to use more advanced editing features with Office 365.
