New App: Microsoft Whiteboard

May 24, 2018

Microsoft Whiteboard is a cool new App that is currently in preview and to be generally available with the next few months.

Gradually rolling out over next few months.

Whiteboard is a free-form digital canvas where people, ideas, and content can come together for creative collaboration. The app is built for anyone who engages in creative, free-form thinking before getting to their final output. It’s designed for teams that need to build on an idea, iterate, and work together both in person and remotely, and across multiple devices.

With an on/off switch with Services & Add-ins, you have some control with the roll-out of this within your organization. Preview switch is currently off-by-default, to give you a chance to explore the new capabilities, and in the summer will be turned on-by-default, unless you explicitly turn it off. In the next few months, the updated version of the Whiteboard Windows 10 app will be available for download from the Microsoft Store. Users in your organization will be able to download and log into the Windows 10 app, as long as Whiteboard is enabled for your organization.
