Chrome OS beta channel received an updated recently which enables Chromebooks to open MS Office files without an internet connection. We will soon see this in a stable release, making this feature available to all Chromebook users. I am not sure about CR48 users though. Sorry Cougar Abogado
This is a very important update because this comes out when we are all waiting for the next set of Chrombooks to be out. So, when the announce the new set of devices, they will be able to give a better answer to those who argued that Chromebooks are not of much use when they are not connected.
This feature along with the new desktop experience, and Google Drive integration will make Chromebooks a better choice. Now, bring down the price, I am sure the market for Chrome OS devices will go way up.
What’s in our wishlist now?
Thanks Pedram Jabbari
