It would be cool if you could video chat while editing with other people

I would like to be able to video chat while editing with someone. It would be faster that typing something out, and you could actually talk to someone instead of messaging.

        That would be great because usually my school uses it for work and if we could chat together, we could come up with ideas when not at school!

        Hi!

        Thanks for the suggestion. We're working on adding Skype messaging and audio/video chat to Office Online products (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote). Some OneDrive (consumer) customers are able to use this feature now and after we address a few remaining issues all OneDrive (consumer) users will get this feature.

        OneDrive (business) users also are getting Skype IM chat soon with audio/video coming at a later date.
