Microsoft Lists were publicly announced at Microsoft Build as an evolution of SharePoint lists and are starting to roll-out to customers worldwide.

A list will work more and more like a data base where you will be able to add custom formatting like custom rows or custom views and will have great support inside of SharePoint, Microsoft Teams and on the dedicated web and mobile apps.
