Microsoft has announced the further integration of Skype across its services, and you can now make calls and chat from within Office Online and OneDrive. As Redmond notes, this furthers the collaborative power of its online Office suite, allowing multiple users to co-edit a document and chat in-line about the various changes that they're making. The clever bit is that the chat history stays attached to the document, so the next time you open it to work on the file collaboratively, all your previous discussion is brought back up in case you need to reference something said in the past.
