Microsoft Loop components are live, interactive, collaborative objects that you can embed in Teams chats and emails – and now in Word for the web – as a convenient way to ideate, create, and plan together. While working in a Word online document, you can now create or paste a Loop component, which will insert it directly in the document canvas and can be shared with others on teams or email as well. This will help in easier and faster collaboration on documents as others’ edits will be immediately seen in your Word document. Everyone in your organization with whom you’ve shared the document will be able to edit it and see changes instantly.
When this will happen
Targeted release: We will begin rolling out to target release users in early December and expect to complete by early February.
How this will affect your organization
Loop components add dynamic elements to your document that you can share in Teams or email, where everyone’s edits keep your document up to date. You can insert or paste a Loop component in your Word online document to track work items, gather ideas, and more.
