Microsoft, according to TechCrunch, is planning to discontinue support for Chromebook Office Suite. The suite includes apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. The apps (MS Office), which could earlier be downloaded from PlayStore on Chromebook, will be discontinued, and users will now have to rely on Websites for using them (Office.com). The web approach is said to be scalable, better, optimised for larger screens, having all the features, and more apps.
