Microsoft releases preview of collaborative Whiteboard app for Windows 10

We got a good look at Microsoft's Whiteboard app in June and it looks like the firm is finally making the app available in the form of a preview version, which will be available to all Windows 10 devices starting today.

If unfamiliar, Whiteboard is a collaborative app that allows a team to work on a project together as if they were in the same room, throwing out ideas on a digital equivalent of a dry erase whiteboard. Since this is in the digital realm, it isn't limited to just inking on white space, and is a bit more flexible with the ability to introduce images, sticky notes, and more. Those that take advantage will also have access to different kinds of writing tools to make projects look more vibrant, offering support for multiple boards.

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. As mentioned before, the app is rolling out to Windows 10 users today and should be available in the Windows Store. Currently, it is only available in English but should support other languages over the coming months.
