According to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, Microsoft is adding a new capability across multiple Whiteboard clients, that is, Whiteboard for the web, Whiteboard app in Teams, and Whiteboard for Windows. The feature tagged 98161, will let users copy/paste live Loop components from other Microsoft 365 apps.

Microsoft already added Loop Components in Microsoft Teams Chat. The feature is designed to provide users with a unique way that allows them to think, plan, and create together, regardless of their location, especially with the rise in hybrid work.

The feature lets users send out components such as tables or task lists, then everyone with access can make edits as well as view the changes that have already been made. In turn, this makes it easier for people to work together on projects, exchange ideas, and make decisions.

According to Microsoft:

Users will be able to copy/paste, view and edit live Loop components in Whiteboard. This functionality is controlled by the Create and view Loop files in Microsoft apps that support Loop OCPS policy, which applies to all Microsoft apps that support Loop components.

This feature is expected to start rolling out in early December and hit general availability by late December. However, it is worth noting that those using Whiteboard on their mobile devices will only be able to view and edit Loop components. Although Microsoft has indicated that it will be adding the capability to copy/paste Loop Components in a future update.
