Microsoft Whiteboard continues to evolve rapidly. This month we are introducing Whiteboard integration into Teams meetings and two intelligent inking features. Whether you choose to participate from the meeting room or remotely, Microsoft Whiteboard in Teams Meetings (commercial preview) empowers meeting attendees from the same tenant to participate in the conversation, regardless of the device used. For quick and easy collaboration, the board is automatically shared with all meeting attendees. To enable Whiteboard in a Teams meeting, please turn on the Whiteboard web preview here.

Ink grab, enables you to take a picture of your notes scribbled on a physical whiteboard and convert them into digital ink on the Whiteboard App. You don’t have to recreate your board from scratch and all of the information is captured. If you start an ad-hoc brainstorm session on the physical whiteboard, you can easily continue on the digital whiteboard and include remote collaborators in the conversation. Simply take a picture of the content and use ink grab to transform them into digital ink.

 

Bad handwriting? Don’t worry! Ink beautification increases the readability of quickly-jotted notes in the Whiteboard canvas, which analyzes handwriting and automatically replaces it with more legible strokes.   This feature increases collaboration, learning and ideation by addressing common reasons users tell us they find it difficult to use pen or ink.

Together, these intelligent inking features reduce the friction associated with collaboration. With the magic wand, your collaborators will be able to easily collaborate with you on your inking creations.  Ink grab and ink beautification are available in Win10 app, and ink beautification will roll out in the next iOS app update.

 

Provide your team with an infinite digital canvas by downloading Microsoft Whiteboard today.

What about regular users? Do these features come to customer whiteboard too?

What do you think of these inking updates @Luise Freese and @Mathew Gilbertson?

Regular Visitor

They look great @Anna Chu, very cool indeed.  Looking forward to being able to assign items from the whiteboard to action items in To Do!

This is a good start, but we need the ability to add shapes and images at a minimum for this to be useful.

Is this available on macOS?

Microsoft

@Shaked_Benratzon Ink grab and Ink beautification are currently available for all commercial and education customers. We will roll these out to all O365 subscribers in the upcoming months.

Microsoft

Thanks @Mathew Gilbertson for taking a look at the update. The idea of assigning items from the Whiteboard to action items in To Do is something we're looking into :)

Microsoft

Thanks @joesstlouis for the feedback, can you please elaborate what capability are you looking for?

Microsoft

@Ulf Lundqvist we're working to bring Whiteboard to all devices, including MacOS devices. Today, commercial customers can access the Whiteboard on a Mac via the Whiteboard web app that's currently in preview. We plan to roll it out to a broader audience later this year.

@Itai AlmogWe're looking for 2 main things in the whiteboard.  First we need ability to draw basic shapes on the whiteboard area.  We would also need the ability to import jpeg, png and pdf's into the whiteboard area that could be drawn on and saved to onedrive or locally.  I know some of these features are available in the desktop app, but not via Teams at this time.

Love inking and ink beautification.  Need ability to type as well as ink. This was used consistently in our team meetings in Skype and need to be back on par with that functionality to make it fully useful for our biz collab purposes.

Microsoft

Unfortunately the whiteboard isn't fully integrated into TEAMs from my experience.  Some times users must go to the store and download the white board before they can fully utilize the functionality themselves.  AND the inability to type diminishes the functionality of the Whiteboard.  When there are many users trying to collaborate and communicate, not being able to type makes the messages very hard to read.  :) Close and getting closer - improvements should be coming soon hopefully

Is there a time frame when the Android app will be available? And will that integrate Samsung stylus devices (Tab, Note)?

As a high school math teacher, we are looking to viable alternatives to replacing SMARTNotebook. This is a possibility, but as @joesstlouis said, there are some fairly simply implementations that are lacking (basic shapes, sketch-to-shape recognition, etc.) Hopefully the developer team will take this into consideration! Ideally, a fairly fluid OneNote-ish Whiteboard ;)

Any plans on adding a simple text tool? As a desktop user, this feels like a rather massive omission when mouse / touchpad is not ideal for adding text. :( A simple shape tool wouldn't be minded either, but text is truly a fundamental element that feels impossible as a mouse user.

Microsoft

@joesstlouis thanks for clarifying. Yes, these features are available in our Win10 and iOS apps. We will bring them to the web app (that's used in Teams) over time. PDF import is not available today, but it is something we're working on for all our clients.

@KalRose_711 @Matthew Sheets Thanks for the feedback! The Microsoft Whiteboard app does support the ability to type directly onto the canvas, click the plus button in the toolbar and select Text. We will bring it to the web app (that's used in Teams) over time, and you can always open the full client from Teams if you are on a Win10 or iOS device.

Microsoft

@ritar thanks for the feedback! Our first step was to make it very easy to add a whiteboard to any Teams meeting. Our focus now is to add additional capabilities such as the ones you see in the full client apps.

@Ruediger Pietrowski we're working to bring Microsoft Whiteboard to all devices, including Android phones and tablets. Today, commercial customers can access Whiteboard on Android via the Whiteboard web app that's currently in preview. We plan to roll it out to a broader audience later this year. We are also working on a full client for Android.

Microsoft

@mrcoffie thanks for the feedback. Yes, these features are available in the Win10 and iOS apps and will come to the web app over time. Would using the full client apps be an option for you?

When are we going to get Whiteboard on Android? Seems to be taking ages! (by that I mean as a standalone app, not linked to Teams etc.)

Some of our users have problems accessing the full app from the store due to misc store error messages.  When they are able to install the tool they provide very positive feedback.  The integration with Teams is great but it also be great if it was an app that you can access directly from the o365 waffle where the other common apps like word, ppt, excel are found.  This would make it much more accessible for teachers.

@Itai Almog 

I have a couple of questions.

 

In iOS Teams app there is an icon on the side of the whiteboard to open in the Whiteboard app.  This doesn't seem to work, when is it expected to be enabled?  I'd like to be able to access the additional features in the app like ink to shape and writing beautification.



My other question is specific to the whiteboard app on iOS.  Ink to shape is great but doesn't seem to neaten up a straight line.  Is this planned for a future release.  At the moment all the shapes look great but the lines don't have the same finish and generally detract from the overall presentation.

 

Many thanks

Hi @Itai Almog RE: Whiteboard Teams integration. I can only access see an option to add a Whiteboard if I join the meeting from a web browser. If I join from the Teams desktop client, I don't have the option to add a Whiteboard. 

Should this be the case?

Dear all,

 

We want to test MS Whiteboard in our environment. However, when I try to click on GET on MS store, it gives me nothing. Could it be due to any policy restricting downloading the software?

 

if yes, is there any other way that I can download this Microsoft Whiteboard app from?

 

Any response will be greatly appreciated

IMO Microsoft should consider including Whiteboard into windows10 by default like OneNote

I agree Julian. Either built in to Windows or available in Office 365

@Itai Almog We have conditional Access policy in place for O365 exchange online (will effect OneDrive and Teams as well) with required Approved client app to access data. Due to which i'm not able to use MS Whiteboard app on my iOS device, as Whiteboard app is not Approved client app.

Is there any way we can use Whiteboard app on our iOS device with CA policy in place??

 

Thank you,
