Microsoft announced the general availability of Microsoft Whiteboard for the web and within Microsoft Teams. Now, people can easily collaborate with people using Microsoft Whiteboard regardless of what device they're using or if they have an app installed. Microsoft announced the feature during Ignite 2019.
People can now use Microsoft through office.com or whiteboard.microsoft.com. The web version of Microsoft Whiteboard does not have all of the same features as Microsoft's Whiteboard applications. Instead, it focuses on inking in real-time. Microsoft's techcommunity post announcing Whiteboard's availability states, "We are starting from an experience that is focused on real-time inking but are committed to bringing additional functionality from our native apps over time."
Microsoft Whiteboard is also an option for collaboration within Microsoft Teams. People can select Microsoft Whiteboard from the share option within Microsoft Teams and begin working together. The created whiteboard is available to all users within a meeting. After a meeting concludes, a whiteboard tab is available, allowing meeting attendees to refer back to the whiteboard.
This digital whiteboard allows you to collaborate with colleagues, teachers, and classmates instantly. It works across devices and supports touch, pen, and keyboard.
