MC360766 – Updated October 21, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Loop components are live, interactive, collaborative objects that you can embed in team chats and now also on emails. When you send a Loop component, everyone in the email can edit it inline—and see changes instantly. That means you can collaborate right inside an email message. To give it a try, compose a new email or reply to an existing one and insert a Loop component via the toolbar or copy and paste components between email and Teams chats. 

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93234
