Microsoft’s Whiteboard Preview app is now available for download on Windows 10 devices.

According to Microsoft, the freeform digital canvas has been created to bring people, ideas and content together for creative collaboration.

“Microsoft Whiteboard Preview is built for anyone who engages in creative, freeform thinking before getting to their final output,” said a new blog post from the Microsoft Whiteboard Team. “It’s designed for teams that need to ideate, iterate, and work together both in person and remotely, and across multiple devices.

“In the course of our private beta, we saw startups use it to put together images, mockups, and notes as an inspiration board for their next big idea. We witnessed marketing agencies use it in online meetings as they work with clients on product designs in real time. And our team uses it to diagram engineering plans, with remote participants filling in their respective areas on the same working canvas. Ultimately, we see Microsoft Whiteboard Preview as enhancing how people go from personal ideation, team brainstorms, and group discussions to their finished products.”
