Day 6 - Chatting with Collaborators

When you're working on a Google Document, you can see at the top of the screen if any of the people that you've shared it with are also working on the Document. Each person is represented at the top right of the screen by an icon (or picture if they've added one to their account) and a color.

You can also see a matching color cursor indicating where each person is working in the Document. When each person is actively editing the document, the person's name will be shown on their cursor.

Google Documents allows you to chat with all of the collaborators working in the Document. Click the "Chat" icon next to the icons of the collaborators to open a group chat.

The chat window will appear in the lower right of the Document. You will see the names of all of the people who are part of the chat. Type your message at the bottom of the window and press "Enter" on the keyboard to send it to the group.

In tomorrow's tip, we'll talk about another way to interact with other collaborators within a Google Document.
