Uncover the power of Microsofts Loop App with SharePoint for innovative collaboration and optimized performance.

Today, the public preview of the Microsoft Loop app has been announced. Microsoft Loop is a co-creation tool, designed to allow individuals, regardless of their location or preferred toolset, to work on shared projects with ease. The Loop app serves as a singular workspace for project resources, incorporating an intuitive search function to aid in project initiation.

SharePoint is vital to Loop's operation, providing underlying storage and collaboration technology. This integration allows Loop and SharePoint to offer a unified co-creation experience for modern workflows.

For the Loop app to function optimally on SharePoint, considerable planning and work were required. Four crucial enhancements have been identified:

  • Tree Structured Storage – By shifting from traditional file stream architecture to tree-structured storage, SharePoint has enhanced its performance and flexibility, allowing for collaboration and adaptation with the Fluid Framework, the basis for Microsoft Loop.
  • Performance Optimizations – The real-time collaboration and editing capabilities of the Loop app are of high performance, benefiting numerous Microsoft 365 and Azure scenarios.
  • Personal and Work – Loop is simultaneously available for both personal (MSA) and organization (AAD) accounts due to SharePoint's support for both authentication models.
  • Security and Compliance – Loop, through SharePoint, maintains industry-leading standards on these fronts.

Several Microsoft 365 applications, including OneDrive, Sites, Designer, Syntex, Office, Teams, Viva, Stream, Whiteboard, Search, Yammer, and Lists, are powered by SharePoint. Further information and announcements about Loop will be shared at the upcoming Microsoft 365 Conference.
