Zotero, Chromebook and Word Office365 version

I am a librarian looking to help a student who wanted to use Zotero with her Chromebook and Word Office 365 version provided by the university.
I managed to install Zotero on her Chromebook by following this procedure: https://github.com/retorquere/zotero-deb
It worked well.
But when she opens Word, she cannot find the Word plugin in the toolbar. I thought it must be the Office365 version that was causing the problem (I see this problem quite often). So I wanted to try this tip : https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/73354/how-to-use-zotero-plug-with-word-365
But I think that because she has a Chromebook she only has the online version of Word (so I can't find an "Option" menu in Word). I also looked here but I don't see anything that fits her case : https://www.zotero.org/support/word_processor_plugin_manual_installation
Do you see a way to fix it or is this the most you can do with a Chromebook? At the moment I've advised her to create a bibliography from the documents in her collection, copy it to the clipboard, then paste it into a Word document, but that doesn't handle in-text citations.
Thanks in advance for your help !

    Zotero doesn't currently work in the online version of Word, though we hope to support it in the future after Microsoft makes changes to make it possible.

    Quick Copy can copy citations as well as bibliographies, though it's obviously not as sophisticated as the word processor plugins.
