Microsoft Moving Its Focus to Web Tech through Fluid Framework as Revealed in Build 2019

At Build 2019 conference held yesterday, Microsoft disclosed Fluid Framework developer platform. Through this platform, developers will be able to create more interactive and shared services on the web.

The company said the speed and vastness of coauthoring on the web through Microsoft’s framework would be like never before. After trying its multi-user collaboration in Office and Whiteboard app on the web, the company is planning to make it accessible and beneficial for all.

This system of Fluid framework will let developers produce more componentized content and access it on other apps or new document formats.
"The Fluid Framework makes room for intelligent agents to work alongside humans to translate text, fetch content, suggest edits, perform compliance checks, and more. We’ll make this technology broadly available to developers and integrate it into Microsoft 365 experiences.", announced Rajesh Jha, Executive Vice President, Microsoft Experiences and Devices, in a blog post.
Microsoft will be integrating this Fluid Framework into its apps like Word, Microsoft Teams and Outlook, and side by side giving developers access to it. By the end of this year, developers will be able to get the software development kit.

At the conference, the Fluid Framework’s system was demonstrated, how the text in Word is translated for all the members in the document, and the way real-time tables can be shared in a Microsoft Teams chat interface.

The same was demonstrated for Chromium Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Chrome, to show the web tech’s compatibility on a wider level.

Microsoft seems to be focusing on the web more than ever and Fluid Framework is an example of it. As for Edge browser, Microsoft has moved to Chromium. Instead of only working and improving its apps for Windows like before, the company is making huge an effort to progress in its internet services and apps.
