Collaborating with your colleagues on a free-form canvas is now possible on Android with Microsoft Whiteboard.
Microsoft Whiteboard has been available for Windows and iOS for some time. This free form canvas drawing app is now making its way to Android, and now you can collaborate and share your ideas using this app on your Android devices.
Microsoft’s Whiteboard Comes to Android
As seen on the Google Play Store, Microsoft has made the preview of its Whiteboard app available on the official Android app store. This app will now allow you to create and discuss your ideas on a free-form canvas on your Android devices.
The app is still in preview mode, which means it’s not as stable as it would be when the stable version was released. However, it wouldn’t take too long before a stable release comes along.
What you can do with the Microsoft Whiteboard
There are several features in the Microsoft Whiteboard that you can use to create and discuss your ideas. Since the app works on Android, you can use it on both your phone and tablets as long as they are Android based.
Here are some of the features you get with this app.
The main interface has a free-form canvas allowing you to add many types of items to it. You can add custom designs, text and even sticky notes to this canvas. If you are creating doodles, now you have tools to turn your doodles into great looking shapes in the app.
Collaboration made easy
Microsoft Whiteboard updates the canvas in real time, so you can see who is working on which item.
Your colleagues can work from any supported device and you will see their work in real time right on your screen.
Resume your work anytime and anywhere
All of your whiteboard tasks are uploaded to the cloud, which automatically saves the work you do. You can resume your work whenever you want and from any device of your choice, as long as you are logged in to this app.
Limitations with the Microsoft Whiteboard
At the time of writing, the Microsoft Whiteboard is only available to work and school account holders. If you have a personal account, you cannot currently use it with this app. Microsoft says support for personal accounts will be available soon.
Brainstorming just got easier on Android devices
Microsoft Whiteboard is a great app for creating and discussing ideas. Now available on Android, you can use all the features of the app and stay connected with your colleagues from your Android phones and tablets.
