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. Members of the channel can iterate and collaborate on the whiteboards over time. To enable, simply click the “+” button at the top of any Teams channel and chat to Add a tab, search “Whiteboard,” and follow the prompts to name your whiteboard and optionally post to notify the channel 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.
