- QuestionCan you download Microsoft office onto this? I want to use this for school so I need to be able to use word and PowerPoint. (4 Answers)Answers
You cannot install typical Microsoft Office apps on this device, as it runs ChromeOS. You can however edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files using the included Google Apps (Docs,Sheets,Slides) that are FREE apps on the Chrome Web Store and are compatible with most/all files from Office proper... Also, Microsoft makes web-based versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint that are also in the Chrome Web Store and these would better support existing files but these have some limits to their functionality, and I believe full usage requires an active Office365 account/subscription. I hope this helps! Sorry it's not a yes/no answer. YOU HAVE OPTIONS!

Another thing Android Apps are coming to Chromebooks, Android has Apps for all of those issues as well.
