Word and PowerPoint chat functionality

Microsoft announced recently that they are adding a chat functionality to their online versions of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint but did not mention anything yet about OneNote nor Excel. By adding this feature, Microsoft would be following in Google's footsteps in "the coming weeks", where Google offers the chat functionality as well on their Google Sheets which is their version of Excel . The addition that Microsoft added which gives it an edge over Google's version is a feature where the user can review his/her conversations via Microsoft's application at any time, even when the document is closed;  this is possible due to their use of Skype as the backbone.
