Parallels is known to make it easy to run Windows applications on Macs. Now the company has partnered with Google to bring Windows applications to another major platform: Chrome OS. Or at least, the corporate version of Chrome.
Parallels he says that Google Partnership will allow you to run "full-featured Windows applications, including Microsoft Office" on Chromebook Enterprise devices. Parallels also emphasizes that its software will allow collaborative remote work with Windows applications, regardless of this.
The press release does not go into much detail, but is obviously aimed at businesses that have chosen to use Chrome OS and have access to Windows.
While I would worry about performance, as Chromebooks already tend to be low-power devices without any virtualization add-ons, running Windows-only applications on Chromebooks could be a lifeline, especially for those working from home. these days without access to their work devices.
To mention that from old there were rumors who wanted Google to allow Windows applications. Parallels is probably the best solution that could exist due to the experience and reliability of the company. The results will appear in Chrome OS "in the coming months".
