Microsoft releases "Microsoft Whiteboard Preview" app for Windows 10

Microsoft releases

If unfamiliar, Whiteboard is a collaborative app that allows a team to work on a project together as if they were in the same room, throwing out ideas on a digital equivalent of a dry erase whiteboard.

The app uses a swap or a pen input, turning objects into standardized shapes in order to create tables, flowcharts, diagrams and the like, autosaving work to the cloud, others can pick up where you've left off.

When it announced the new Surface Pro a few months back, Microsoft also used the opportunity to preview Whiteboard, a Windows 10 app created to offer creative and business collaboration across devices.

Private investment helps Australia's economy grow by 2.8%
The Australian dollar was down to 75.79 USA cents by 1640 AEDT, from 76.13 United States cents ahead of the release of the data. Meanwhile, spending on electricity, gas and other fuels went up 11.5 per cent and cigarettes and tobacco went up 11.1 per cent.

During private beta testing, Microsoft says it saw a number of teams use Whiteboard to collaborate on product designs, engineering plans, and remote brainstorming sessions. The pen-first, touch-first technology lets you make fluid gestures with your fingers or draw out finer details with your pen. Anyone can use the app, but the collaborative multi-party support will require someone in the group to have an active Office 365 subscription.

The Whiteboard comes with a new eye catching ink shades and a virtual ruler to give more flexibility and precision to the shades. We look forward to receiving your comments, suggestions, and feature requests via the Windows Feedback Hub, which you can access from within the app.

Microsoft is making available on December 5 its Whiteboard collaboration app as a public preview. Microsoft Whiteboard will also eventually replace the native whiteboard app running on Surface Hub, but both can be installed alongside one another during the preview period.
