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.
We've redesigned the people picker! It's now easier to find and invite contacts to a board, or share your board using a web link. We also had a big focus on fixing bugs over the last several weeks, so we hope you enjoy a more stable, usable, and accessible experience with this update.

Potential Replacement for Notes Writer App
A notes with collaboration?!?! Microsoft has OneNote, but OneNote takes too much OneDrive space. Solution? Microsoft Whiteboard. The whiteboard has zoom in and out function, giving you a whole lot of space to put down all the stuff in one page. The whiteboard background is customizable (color, grid, lines). The pen has fun color options like color gradient (different hues) and the view of twilight. The sticky notes are very flexible (rotation, size of sticky note). The app is however very laggy since I believe it is still in the new app stage. I would like pen pressure sensitivity by movement speed option. The pens feel really rough with blocky lines. Zooming into the canvas is kinda tough because the app thinks I’m trying to move around the canvas while I am trying to look at the whole picture. I would also like to be able to adjust the sticky note’s text size. It’s quite hard to see short texts.
Really helpful for schoolwork!
I was looking through the App Store trying to find a decent drawing board app, and eventually found this one! It helps soooo much, especially when I’m doing physics or calculus homework. ☺️
However, an amazing feature you might want to consider: locking the screen in place. I don’t know how many times the screen just zooms in or out or just completely goes somewhere else on the board since I write with my hand laying on the tablet (it’s easier for me to write that way, rather then my hand floating above the tablet as I write). But locking the screen in place would help immensely! 😄
The app is decent enough. It feels a lot like a barebones version of OneNote’s drawing mode.
However, it also feels a lot like a barebones version of OneNote’s drawing mode. Yes, I meant to say that twice.
It features the same basic tools as OneNote, but it lacks any of the pen customizations:
• Ink/Stroke Thickness
• Ink Color
These may sound like simple and unimportant features, but they really do improve the drawing; writing experience, much like bolds and italics do in type.
They way it organizes whiteboards on the home page is nice, but it feels a bit barebones, both in style and in animation. Opening and closing whiteboards is a bit jarring as there is no UI animation for on/off-boarding the user from the whiteboard. A simple “zoom” animation would suffice for this purpose; and a simple, subtle lighting effect on the background of the home page would add more depth without being gaudy or too skeuomorphic. Mild rounding of the whiteboard corners would be nice as well.
In all, it’s the little things that count. This has potential, not only for business use, but personal use as well, as an idea-board and brainstorming utility.
