Microsoft Whiteboard provides a freeform intelligent canvas where teams can ideate, create, and collaborate visually via the cloud. Designed for pen and touch, it lets you write or draw as smoothly as you would with ink, while automatically recognizing and transforming shapes and tables as you draw. It enhances teamwork by allowing all team members to edit and comment directly on the canvas in real time, no matter where they are. And all your work stays safe in the cloud, ready to be picked back up from another location or device.
-- Create freely, work naturally –
Microsoft Whiteboard provides an infinite canvas where imagination has room to grow: draw, type, add a sticky or an image, stack things up, move them around – it’s all possible. The touch-first, pen-first interface frees your ideas from the keyboard, and the intelligent inking technology transforms your doodles into great-looking tables, shapes, and lines that can be copied, pasted, and combined with other objects.
--Collaborate in real time, wherever you are—
Microsoft Whiteboard brings every member of a team together, whether they’re huddled around a wall-size touchscreen or working from their own devices across the globe. On the Whiteboard canvas, you can see where others are in real time and start inking on the same area – or not. It’s about getting everyone on the same page – or board.
--Save automatically, resume seamlessly –
Forget having to take photos of your whiteboards, or marking them with “Do Not Erase.” With Microsoft Whiteboard, your brainstorming sessions are saved automatically to the Microsoft cloud, so you can pick up where you left off, whenever – and wherever – inspiration strikes next.
Lot's of new Whiteboard goodness in this release. Smash that UPDATE button to:
•Lock any image to the whiteboard background and never worry about accidentally erasing, moving or having to recreate template-like content again.
•Make sure your whiteboard is easy for people of all abilities to read and edit with a new Accessibility Checker.
•Access improved sticky note editing experience. Just double tap to add text & let your ideas flow fast.
•Your recognized shapes and tables now have a hand-drawn effect applied to them to help you impress your peers with your penmanship.
•When opening a whiteboard, we now show you a fancy loading animation to help pass the time (and so you don't sit wondering if anything is happening).
•A sprinkling of usability, performance and bug fixes to make your whiteboarding experience a bit more polished.
Ratings and Reviews
Love this app, mostly
It was working flawlessly for the last month as we were testing it. After the last update 11/13, cannot sign in, says admin has disabled. I’m the admin. Whiteboard on windows 10 is still working. Once this is fixed I’ll rate it a 5
When it does work, it’s great. Surprisingly quick - tested it from iPad and windows and updates from death side show up very quickly. This app works great even if you don’t have a surface hub.
The app is very slow and laggy - start up, signing in, drawing, creating a new whiteboard, opening a saved whiteboard, etc...
I can log in with my personal 365 account; however, work account gives an error message about admin permissions... but I am an admin and checked - Whiteboard is enabled... so not sure what the issue is.
I’ve been looking forward to this since it was announced that it would be coming to iOS, I really wish Microsoft would have waited to release this app until it was more stable. Everything feels unresponsive, from creating a new white board to drawing and erasing.
