As part of our commitment to continually bring the everyday Skype experience to more places, we are excited to share that Skype is now available for Office Online Word and Office Online PowerPoint .

Skype for Office Online makes collaborating a breeze. The chat experience is available right next to the document, enabling you to chat in and edit in real-time with other authors. Speed up and simplify document editing with quick Skype group chats instead of long e-mail threads. Keep track of which co-authors are online as well as messages you might have missed.

All you need to get started is your Microsoft account. To get the best experience possible on Skype for Office Online, have your Skype account linked to your Microsoft account. If you haven’t linked the two accounts yet, click here.

We’re always looking to improve your experience on Skype for, OneDrive and now Office Online, and we care about your feedback. We’d love to hear from you on the Skype Community with any questions or concerns. Also, you can always find us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates and share your thoughts.
