Microsoft Whiteboard is now available on Android in preview

Microsoft Whiteboard allows you to collaborate through the cloud on a shared virtual whiteboard. It works with touch, pen, and is already available on the web, Windows 10, and iOS. You can also use Microsoft Whiteboard directly within Microsoft Teams. Now, you can also test out Microsoft Whiteboard on Android (via OnMSFT). The app is in preview, so you can expect some bugs and issues, but we’re now closer to having it across all major platforms.

Here’s the description of Microsoft Whiteboard preview from its Google Play Store listing:

Microsoft Whiteboard provides a freeform intelligent canvas where teams can ideate, create, and collaborate visually via the cloud. Designed for touch, type & pen, it lets you write or draw as smoothly as you would with ink, you can even type in text or add sticky notes to express your thoughts. It enhances teamwork by allowing all team members to edit the canvas in real-time, no matter where they are. And all your work stays safe in the cloud, ready to be picked back up from another location or device.

Right now, some people are having issues signing into the app. When I tried to use the app, it prompted me to use a school or work account, so there’s a chance that personal accounts aren’t supported right now. It could also just be an issue with the app as it’s in preview at the moment. You can use a personal account on the other versions of Microsoft Whiteboard, so that shouldn’t be an issue in the future.
