Are there any requirements for users to be able to see this feature in Teams meetings? I am aware that only the preview version is currently available - although I am able to see this feature, my colleague isn't. I did some looking up on the support sites but don't see any hardware requirements listed.

Hi @nealla.gomes

AFAIK there are a few things you need

1.) Whiteboard to be enabled in the Office/Microsoft365 admin centre under settings > services and add-ins > Whiteboard > Enable. I imagine this is done as you can use it

2.) The user needs to have Whiteboard turned on underneath their licence. This may not be done for the user with the issue

Hope that helps to answer your question. Let me know.

Best, Chris
