Chat is Coming to Microsoft Office Online
Ryan Simmons / 3 years ago
Tired of working on a document and having to keep switching back and forward to Facebook or Skype to keep your co-workers in the loop? Well it seems that Microsoft is about to make collaborating on documents a lot simpler, by adding chat to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint online.
The chat functionality is essentially Skype built into the two productivity apps, so you’ll be able to contact people using their Skype usernames and continue conversations in the Skype app on your phone. Unfortunately, chat will not be available in Excel or OneNote. The new feature will be added to Word and PowerPoint “in the coming weeks”.
