At their annual developer conference, Microsoft has announced a new Fluid Framework for developers. The framework is basically a new web-based platform to allow teams to work on a free-flowing canvas.

Microsoft has shared some of its capabilities that should help teams collaborate and work together on projects. You can head below to take a look at some of its features:

  • Enabling content, from the web or productivity apps for example, to be deconstructed and reconstructed into modular components so people can more easily create together.
  • Delivering high-performance, multi-person, co-authoring experiences at speeds not yet achieved in the industry.
  • Creating room for intelligent agents to work alongside humans to co-author, fetch content, provide photo suggestions, identify experts, translate data and more.

This is a new web-based platform and componentized document model for shared, interactive experiences. Fluid will break down the barriers of the traditional document as we know it and usher in the beginning of the free-flowing canvas. First, experiences powered by the Fluid Framework will support multi-person coauthoring on web and document content at a speed and scale not yet achieved in the industry. Second, it provides a componentized document model that allows authors to deconstruct content into collaborative building blocks, use them across applications, and combine them in a new, more flexible kind of document. Third, the Fluid Framework makes room for intelligent agents to work alongside humans to translate text, fetch content, suggest edits, perform compliance checks, and more.

The Fluid Framework is expected to be available to the developers later this year through a software development kit. Not only that, but Microsoft is also expected to deliver the first Microsoft 365 experiences powered by Fluid later this year.
