When it declared the new Surface Pro a couple of months back, Microsoft likewise utilized the chance to review Whiteboard, a Windows 10 application meant to offer innovative and business joint effort crosswise over gadgets.

Microsoft Whiteboard, a new creative collaboration app that Microsoft first demoed back in May is launching in preview today.

The Whiteboard Preview app should be available on all English versions of Windows 10 by the time you read this.

Whiteboard is, at its core, a collaboration app. "And unlike traditional whiteboards, the app automatically saves your boards, so you can pick up where you left off or share links to your boards, so others can build on top of your work". Focused on pen and touch input, the app comes with a slew of built-in inking tools, including rulers and various pen styles.

Intelligent ink recognizes your freeform drawings and turns them into standard shapes, so it's easy to create great-looking tables, diagrams, and flowcharts. "Ultimately, we see Microsoft Whiteboard Preview as enhancing how people go from personal ideation, team brainstorms, and group discussions to their finished products". Now that it's in public preview, more users and organizations will be able to test the app out ahead of its full, official launch.

As you can probably guess, the biggest feature of this app is the collaborative aspect, but this will require users to have an Office 365 subscription. 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.
