What is Loop?

Microsoft Loop enables you and your team to bring all the parts of your project together in one place and collaborate across the apps and devices you already use. Loop combines a powerful and flexible canvas with portable components that move freely and stay in sync across applications, enabling teams to think, plan, and create together. Check out the overview video below to learn more about the Loop ecosystem, including the Loop app, Loop components, and Collaborative notes in Microsoft Teams.
