At its recent Ignite event, Microsoft unveiled a new Office application: Loop. Built on its long-promised real-time Fluid Framework collaboration platform, Loop is a canvas that hosts components for shared work, providing a place to keep all the various pieces of a team’s project together.
You could consider Loop to be the spiritual successor to one-time Microsoft Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie’s work on Notes and Groove. Loop mixes documents, editing tools, and conversations so a team can construct documents while managing discussions around the content. It builds on the micro-work concepts we’re seeing in tools such as Teams, breaking down units of work and collaboration into components that can be inserted into Loop documents.
