Chat with others in a file

If you work on a file at the same time as other people, you can chat with each other inside the document, spreadsheet, or presentation.

  1. On your computer, open a document, spreadsheet, or presentation.
  2. At the top right, click Chat Chat. This feature won't be available if you're the only one in the file.
  3. Enter your message in the chat box.
  4. When you’re finished, at the top right of the chat window, click Close Close.

Note: All chats in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides include anyone viewing the file. The chats aren't saved.
