Microsoft Teams: Free Version of Whiteboard app Available

The Microsoft Whiteboard app was available as a pre-release version for Windows 10 since December 2017 and has been downloaded more than 200,000 times, according to Microsoft. As of the preview label officially withdrawned, and  followed by a version for iOS. Also a web version is planned.

What is Microsoft Whiteboard anyway?
The whiteboard app is a modified and modern version of the app that was previously available exclusively on the Surface Hub. It is planned that the latter will be discontinued in the future and replaced by the now generally available whiteboard app.

Microsoft whiteboard can be used on any Windows 10 PC, but unfolds its full potential but naturally on a tablet with pen input. Sketches can be made on the whiteboard, as well as insert images or content from the clipboard. Notes can be added in the form of virtual PostIts.

The special feature: You do not work alone on the whiteboard, several people can participate at the same time and follow the work of the other participants in real time (I’ve already tried that, it works impressively well and fast). It works with both Office 365 business accounts and Microsoft private accounts. In addition, the whiteboards sync across all Windows 10 devices sync.

When the iOS version is released, is not fixed yet, but it should happen soon. In addition, there should be a web client that can then be used via a browser on any device. An Android version is also in planning, but there is no further information.
