Chromebook And Word/Excel Documents

Chromebook for enterpriseThere is a new feature in ChromeOS under Dev mode (Make sure its version is > 29). It will let you to edit office documents (Word, Excel) in your browser with QuickOffice. How to do it?

  1. Open a new tab (Ctrl+N).
  2. Type into the omnibox chrome://flags/ and hit Enter.
  3. Click on Ctrl+F and type “document”.
  4. Click “Enable” next to “Enable document editing”. This is what it should look like under the Flags page:chromeOS enable office editing

The good part in this new feature is that you can work on these documents in places where you don’t have any connection… and, if you need to take these docs from your google drive and ‘open’ them in google docs you will gain all the collaboration features. It’s important to remember that this feature is under dev mode for now. So use it like any other feature that is ‘canary’.
