Fluid Framework

Fluid Framework is new Microsoft technology and sets of experiences that make collaboration seamless by breaking down barriers between different applications. Supports collaboration for multiple people to simultaneously collaborate directly on the web and/or content within an already existing document.

The framework is based on a component-based model that allows the creator to construct generic content and use the component in different applications. Changes are made simultaneously at all instances where the component is used. This allows for new ways of collaborating and ensures that information is always up to date with the latest content and also provides room for digital intelligent agents to work with people.

Snippet from Wikipedia: Fluid Framework

Fluid is a free and open source computer platform for real-time collaboration across applications. Microsoft first demonstrated the software at its Build conference in May 2019 as a framework that would allow for real-time collaboration between users of its Office on the web online office suite. It replaces the concept of a "document" with a cloud address for real-time collaboration and sharing of content forms including text and tables. Microsoft expects to implement it in its Teams chat software, Outlook mail software, and other productivity software. It is designed for integration with other services, such as live translation and Cortana voice assistance. Public and private previews of the software began in November 2019. Microsoft open sourced the software in September 2020.
