Tech giant Microsoft is introducing Embed web part in SharePoint spaces which will allow users to show SharePoint pages or HTML page embed content as an interactable overlay on a SharePoint space. Space viewers will see a thumbnail image in the 3D space that can be viewed as a fully functional HTML overlay when selected by the user. Space viewers that are using a mixed reality headset will only see the thumbnail when selecting the web part unless they return to the browser to interact with the embedded content.
This new feature release will allow users to add content such as:
- Microsoft Forms
- The PowerPoint embed viewer
- SharePoint Pages
- Power Apps
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70732.
- Targeted release (selected users and entire organization): Roll out will begin in early November and expect to be complete by mid-November.
- Standard release: Roll out will begin in mid-November and expect to be complete by late November.
