Microsoft Loop preview is live now to help simplify content creation across Microsoft 365 apps

A public preview of Microsoft Loop is now being released. It’s a Microsoft experience that unites Microsoft 365 apps for better collaboration in one hub.

After several months of being exclusive to private preview-only customers, Microsoft has officially launched the new Loop app and website in public preview today. The news means that anyone with a Microsoft account can now enjoy sharing and working on content from Microsoft services in a single workspace hub, without worrying about switching between multiple apps and slowing down the speed of their collaboration.

You can access Loop today both on the web And as a mobile app on iOS (although iOS requires Testflight) and Android if you feel the need to give it a try. However, support for personal Microsoft accounts is not yet fully enabled on the mobile apps. Once you sign in with a Microsoft account, you should see that the service is somewhat similar to competing products like Asana or Notion, but with greater integration with Microsoft’s own services like Word and PowerPoint.

For those who can’t try it, check it out in the video below. Essentially, with Loop, you get a single real-time collaboration experience for importing tasks, documents, and other projects with your co-workers, with suggestions for projects you’re working on in other Microsoft services. There are also templates for you to check out, and up to 50 people at one time can work in the Loop. Loop projects happen in what’s known as a workspace, and you can even email your Loop page and share it, saving changes as you share it. It may come in handy in situations where you want to see different document types side by side as well.

Loop apps are not to be confused with the website and Loop components, which are co-authored things like lists and paragraphs that were already available in other apps like Microsoft Word, Teams, and even Outlook on Windows. Loop components are what make the Loop app so amazing.
