Recently, Microsoft announced the GA of the Microsoft Whiteboard app for Windows 10. Whiteboard gives your teams a freeform, intelligent canvas for real time ideation, creation, and collaboration. Since releasing a preview of the app in December, more than 200,000 customers have helped Microsoft fine tune the feature set as well as the end user experience. Based on their feedback we’ve added a number of new features, including text notes, the ability to add and manipulate images, enhancements to shape and table recognition, accessibility improvements, compliance with various global standards, and more. In addition, the Whiteboard app for iOS and preview on the web will be coming soon. These releases will mark an important milestone in our journey to make Whiteboard the best tool for freeform collaboration across platforms and form factors.

Check out these ways to Create freely while working naturally with Microsoft Whiteboard

Whiteboard provides an expansive canvas where imagination has room to grow and develop. You can draw, type, or add images. Use sticky notes to organize ideas. Stack things up and move them around. Designed for pen, touch, and keyboard, Whiteboard allows you to share your ideas naturally. Intelligent ink recognizes shapes and makes creating tables a snap. And because the canvas expands along with your creations, you never have to worry about running out of space.

Collaborate anywhere in real time

Whiteboard brings a team together – and gives them space to create.  Teammates can huddle around a large touchscreen in the same room or work together on their own devices from around the world. And, avatars on the canvas help you keep track of who is doing what and bring a natural rhythm to the interaction.

Note: Whiteboard currently supports collaboration within Office 365 tenants for commercial customers, and across personal accounts for customers with a Microsoft account. Collaboration across multiple Office 365 tenants is planned for future release.

Auto Save and pick up where you left off

Never mind about taking photos of  your conference room whiteboards or tagging them with “Do Not Erase.” With the Microsoft Whiteboard app, brainstorming sessions are saved automatically to the Microsoft cloud, so you can pick up where you left off, whenever – and wherever – inspiration strikes next.
