Microsoft's collaborative Whiteboard app for Windows 10 rolls out of private beta

After several leaks, Microsoft has finally announced the release of Whiteboard Preview app for Windows 10 devices.

Additionally, intelligent ink can be used with the preview of the Microsoft Whiteboard, which recognises freeform drawings and turns them into standard shapes, so it's easy to create great-looking tables, diagrams, and flowcharts.

Whiteboard is, at its core, a collaboration app. It's sort of a digital sibling to Microsoft's pricey Surface Hub.

The public preview of Microsoft Whiteboard is available from the Microsoft App Store for all English versions of Windows 10 as of today. "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". The app will begin taking off to Windows 10 through the span of the following 24 hours, bringing the capacity to conceptualize, ideate, repeat and those other fun work things continuously over various gadgets running the same working framework. To use the app, which is free, one participant in a collaborative session must have an Office 365 personal, work or school account. Whiteboard is out of beta, but still in preview, so it's not quite the final version.

With the latest Store update, Microsoft has removed the acrylic effect to the hamburger menu and a subtle reveal effect.

No word on whether or when the app might be coming to additional operating systems, but given Microsoft's mobile strategy of late, I wouldn't be too shocked to see it arrive on Android and iOS devices in the not too distant future.
