Office 365 Integration Requirements - a Google account & Chrome?

Hi there,

Noticed that 'an active Google account' was listed as a requirement of RingCentral's Office 365 integration in the datasheet.

Is this accurate? If so, does RingCentral expect folks who want to use that feature to have both Office 365 and Google Apps accounts?

Requirements
  • RingCentral for Microsoft Office 365 is available to all RingCentral Office® customers.
  • You must have an active Google account.
  • Windows® XP (or later) or Mac OS X® 10.8 Mountain Lion (or later) operating systems are required. 
  • Supported browsers include Chrome 30 (or later).

Good catch! With the announcement I noticed that it requires Google Chrome... And that is ok, but "must have" an account with Google? That's weird... Maybe the folks at RC are using Chromebooks for developing... (no pun intended).

I'll try to find the reason for this. I noticed I was able to install the extension without being logged in to a Google account, but not sure if that limits the functionality of the extension.
