Chromebooks and Word

Lots of students like me got Chromebooks for Christmas without realizing we can't download word. We're required to use the most recent version of word to submit papers. Is there any way to do this online or do I really have to go get another computer. Please?

Hi Miller,


Thank you for choosing Microsoft Community.


As you have already found out, it is not possible to install a version of Office/Word on a Chromebook.


As a work around you may sign up for a account and use the Microsoft Office Web Applications using your Chrome browser.


To know more on Office Wen Apps, refer to the following link:
