Microsoft Whiteboard Preview—the freeform canvas for creative collaboration

These days, we’re gradually rolling out that the Microsoft Whiteboard Preview program–a freeform electronic canvas where people, ideas, and articles may come together for creative collaboration–available for download Windows 10 devices. * Microsoft Whiteboard Preview is constructed for anybody who engages in creative, freeform believing before getting to their final outcome. It’s designed for teams that have to ideate, iterate, and work together in person and remotely, and across multiple devices.

In the course of our personal beta we all saw startups use it in order to put together images, mockups, and notes as a inspiration plank to get their next major idea. We witnessed advertising agencies use it in internet meetings as they work with clients on product designs in real time. And our team uses it to diagram engineering plans, together with distant participants filling within their respective areas on the same working canvas. Finally, we see Microsoft Whiteboard Preview as enhancing the way people go from personal ideation, team brainstorms, and group discussions for their own finished products.

The limitless surface ensures that creativity has space to develop and provides space for everyone’s ideas. Bring in teammates if they are across the hall or in a different portion of the planet–with real time collaboration across multiple devices. You are able to see where everybody is on the plank along with the updates they are creating–if they are adding images, setting up sticky notes, or even producing diagrams. Now even distant workers can easily join in and contribute to the discussion.

Microsoft Whiteboard Preview lets you produce whatever way feels most natural to you. The pen-first, touch-first technology lets you create fluid gestures along with your fingers or pull out finer details along with your pen. Using your fingers, you are able to swipe into different sections of your board, turn the ruler into the angle you need, and drag and drop images to make a photo stack. If you use pen or touch, Microsoft Whiteboard Preview recognizes your goal and delivers your desired outcomes in an instant.

Together with the preview of Microsoft Whiteboard, you may use intelligent ink which recognizes that your freeform drawings and turns them to standard shapes, so it’s easy to create great-looking tables, diagrams, and flowcharts. And unlike traditional whiteboards, the program automatically saves your boards, so that you may pick up where you left off or share links to your boards, so others can build on top of your job. * No need to shoot photos of your canvas or email photos to others if you want to get them up to speed.

We are really excited that you test out the Microsoft Whiteboard Preview as we believe it can allow you to unlock imagination and harness the power of your teams. We look forward to getting your comments, suggestions, and feature requests through the Windows Feedback Hub, which you may access from inside the program.

The Microsoft Whiteboard Preview is rolling out to all English versions of Windows 10 over the following 24 hours, and will roll out into additional languages in the forthcoming months. The program is free to use for anybody using a Windows 10 device, but a single player using an Office 365 personal, work, or school account is necessary for multi-party collaboration. To Surface Hub customers, the Microsoft Whiteboard Preview will gradually replace the native whiteboard program now running in your own Surface Hub.
