Microsoft has officially rolled out Loop, a collaborative workspace and note-taking app aimed squarely at competing with Notion.

Loop mirrors Notion’s interface, offering users flexible workspaces and pages that streamline collaboration efforts. One notable similarity is the familiar “/ ” command, which, in Loop, activates the “insert menu,” akin to Notion’s toolbox for various tools and formatting options.

What sets Loop apart, though, is its seamless integration with other Microsoft software. Users can easily share sections of Loop pages across Microsoft applications such as Teams chat and Outlook. This integration aims to enhance workflow efficiency, allowing users to collaborate without the hassle of switching between different apps. Additionally, Loop incorporates Microsoft’s AI-powered Copilot assistant, assisting users in tasks like drafting text and summarizing content within the app.


Loop is now available for commercial users on both web and mobile platforms, with the mobile app also open to consumer customers. While the app entered public preview in March, the consumer version of Loop on the web is still in this testing phase, as confirmed by Microsoft’s Matt Anderson. As Microsoft continues to expand its suite of productivity tools, Loop emerges as a promising contender in the competitive landscape of collaborative workspaces.
