Ahead of its Inspire partner conference next week, Microsoft has launched its Whiteboard collaboration app out of preview. The freeform inking app is now generally available on Windows 10, and it will be "coming soon" to iOS and on the web.
Microsoft Whiteboard allows team members to collaborate on a blank digital canvas, both in person and remotely. In addition to basic inking and keyboard support for writing out notes and ideas, Whiteboard includes the ability to add and manipulate images, shape recognition, and more. The app can also automatically recognize when you're making a table, allowing collaborators to easily keep their ideas organized.
After a brainstorming session is over, whiteboards can be saved and shared via the Microsoft cloud for team members to reference at any time.
Whiteboard's exit from preview follows an update released last week that brought more polish to the experience, including a new startup experience and icons.
Whiteboard is available now for all Windows 10 users, and collaboration features are accessible to Office 365 commercial customers and anyone with a personal Microsoft account. Microsoft says that collaboration across multiple Office 365 tenants is planned for a future release.
