Microsoft announced a new Microsoft Loop experience back in November of 2021, and it was intended as a new collaborative app to leverage Microsoft’s own Fluid Framework and let you manage various Loop snips. Microsoft has been quiet about Loop since then, but the leaker FireCube recently revealed what looks to be a homepage and signup page for the new Microsoft experience.

Unfortunately, it looks as though this signup page to try out the new Loop app isn’t working, as only says the public preview hasn’t started yet. Still, the signup page is pretty neat, as it showcases how the Loop experience might look. Naturally, it’s heavily influenced by Fluent Design with a lot of mica effects and rounded corners. The webpage also dives into the following features of Loop.
- Microsoft Loop is a flexible canvas on the web for your content so it moves across Microsoft 365
- Loop Workspaces lets you combine the information for a project by connecting files, links, and data from other apps in one place and let you structture it through workspaces, pages, and subpages.
- You can insert different types of content or start with a page template
- You can insert Loops into Microsoft Apps like Teams, Outlook, Word, and OneNote.
- You can assign tasks, co-create and build on ideas
There’s a lot of uncertainty about what type of Microsoft accounts Loop might end up working with, but FireCube believes it’s currently in internal preview only. This means it could be a few weeks or a few months until the Loop experience becomes available for everyone. We’ll be keeping an eye out and will update you accordingly.
