Message Summary

Co-authoring content in Teams just got easier. Now you can send a chat message containing a live component that can be edited inline—in real time—by everyone in the chat.

Key points

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 82779
  • Timing:
    • Standard: we will begin rolling this out in mid-August and expect to complete rollout late August.
    • GCC: we will begin rolling this out in early September and expect to complete rollout late September.
  • Roll-out: tenant level
  • Control type: user control
  • Action: review and assess

How this will affect your organization:

Fluid components in Teams chat allow end users to send a message with a table, action items, or a list that can be co-authored and edited by everyone in line and in the future will be shareable across Office applications like Outlook. Users will be able to quickly align across teams, and get work done efficiently by copy and pasting components across Teams chats.

With Fluid components users can ideate, create, and decide together, while holding fewer meetings and minimizing the need for long chat threads.
