Talk about fluidity! You may be familiar with one of Microsoft’s newest creations, the Fluid Framework, which was first announced at BUILD last year, and arrived in preview later that year at Ignite.
Now, the company is taking some big steps forward, by announcing some important updates for it.
For starters, the Fluid Framework is now open source, meaning developers will now not only be able to use it in their applications, but also contribute to the project and work alongside the software titan to evolve this endeavor.
This video shows how the Fluid Framework reimagines collaboration:
Now, a preview of the Fluid Framework already allowed Office 365 commercial customers to crowdsource meeting agendas, keep track of tasks, among other things. But now Redmond is all set to bring Fluid Workspaces and Fluid Components to select Microsoft 365 experiences.
Office.com and Outlook.com will be the first Microsoft 365 apps to get these additions.
The public preview will soon roll out to Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Education subscribers that are enrolled in Targeted Release, and both these features will come to more Microsoft 365 applications over time.
This will enable seamless collaborations across different apps, allowing you to add things like tables, charts, task lists and more into various types of documents and keep them always up to date.
