Google and Cisco have partnered up to offer Cisco WebEx and Cisco UC on Chromebooks. Rajen Sheth, Googles's Director of Product Management on Chrome for Business announced the news at Enterprise Connect, where he demonstrated a proof of concept of the WebEx offering.

"We're also integrating Cisco UC technologies into Google Apps, helping our joint customers work better together," writes Chrome for Business Product Manager Saswat Panigrahi. "Imagine joining a WebEx meeting directly from Calendar, or starting an instant meeting from Contacts or the Gmail People widget. Starting today, if you use Cisco and Google Apps, features you love, like messaging, fax, click-to-call and Cisco presence, are visible alongside Gmail."

Google is telling Cisco customers to get in touch with the Google sales team or Google Enterprise sales via this form to see about getting set up.

In case you're wondering how long Chrome OS for enterprise devices is supported, it's four years.
