Today we are pleased to announce the Public Preview of the Microsoft Whiteboard app for Android and the launch of Microsoft Whiteboard in Microsoft Teams channels and chat. 

 

Whiteboard in Teams Channels and chat

 

For projects and longer-term discussions, you can now create a whiteboard associated with a Teams channel or chat. Members of the channel or chat can iterate and collaborate on the whiteboards over time. To enable, simply click the “+” button at the top of any Teams channel or chat to Add a tab, search "Whiteboard,” and follow the prompts to name your whiteboard and optionally post to notify the channel or chat that Whiteboard is now enabled.

Whiteboard for Android 

 

Leveraging the completely rebuilt Whiteboard for Web and Teams experience we announced last year, Whiteboard for Android moves us one major step closer to achieving our vision of a collaboration space for ideation that is accessible from any device and integrates seamlessly into the collaboration workflows teams already use. 

 

Whether on Teams, Web, Windows 10, iOS, or now Android, Microsoft Whiteboard provides an infinite canvas where imagination has room to grow. You can draw, type, add a sticky note, stack things up, and move them around.

To start using Whiteboard on your Android device running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or later, download the app from the Google Play Store or managed Play store if your tenant admin requires you to sign in with work or school account. Currently, Whiteboard for Android requires login with a Work or School account. To learn more, visit the Whiteboard product page, or read the FAQ
