Microsoft Teams Gains Whiteboard Feature
Microsoft Teams is gaining a handy new whiteboard feature. Microsoft has released a public preview of it for Android devices and its Teams collaboration platform. Microsoft Whiteboard is now available for Windows 10, iOS, the web, within Teams, and on Android in preview.
On the Android app, you can draw, type, add sticky notes, and do other tasks you’d expect if you’ve used Microsoft Whiteboard on other platforms.
Teams users can create a whiteboard that’s linked to a Teams channel or chat. Members of a group can update the whiteboard and use it to collaborate on projects, either short term or long term. There’s a “+” button on top of Teams channels and chats for adding a new tab. Users can then search for the term Whiteboard and enable a new Whiteboard.
The addition of Whiteboard for Android devices and Teams rounds out Microsoft’s plans to make it an app for collaboration across all platforms. People with Android devices need to be on Android 6.0 Marshmallow or later. Whiteboard for Android also requires login with a Work or School account.
