Microsoft Loop has been officially launched, a productivity and collaboration app that bears a striking resemblance to the popular Notion platform.

Microsoft Loop is built for the new way of work, which is characterized by more remote work, more collaboration, and more need for agility.

Loop helps people connect and innovate by providing a centralized workspace where they can share ideas, work on projects together, and stay up to date on the latest information.

See how the Microsoft 365 YouTube channel describes Loop below.

Microsoft Loop is a Notion competitor on steroids

Loop's interface closely mirrors that of Notion, including the ability to access a variety of tools and formatting options by typing the forward slash key. This intuitive design makes it easy for users familiar with Notion to quickly grasp Loop's functionality.

Microsoft's expertise in software development has enabled Loop to seamlessly integrate with other Microsoft applications, such as Teams Chat and Outlook.

This integration allows users to effortlessly share Loop page segments across these platforms, eliminating the need for constant context switching.

Copilot is there too

Loop incorporates Microsoft's AI-powered Copilot assistant, which provides valuable assistance with tasks like drafting text and summarizing pages. This intelligent feature enhances productivity and streamlines the collaborative workflow.

Here is a quick summary of the key features of Microsoft Loop:

  • Flexible, collaborative workspaces and pages
  • Seamless integration with Microsoft applications
  • AI-powered Copilot assistant for enhanced productivity
  • Real-time synchronization across apps
  • Intelligent suggestions, page templates, and an insert menu for easy setup
  • File and document search functionality
  • Cross-platform availability
