Add a whiteboard.
Add a whiteboard to share.
We are happy to announce the Microsoft Whiteboard feature is now generally available in Teams Meetings via the share tray.

What has FORMS got to do with whiteboards? Just got an email about this whiteboard idea (which I do want) but with questions solely about forms (that I don't want)
Jeff Allen commented
A whiteboard would be great. I got an email that this is planned but it seemed the info in the email was about MS. Forms. I'd like to see both.

This would be amazing! Very helpful when it comes to on the spot meeting to visually discuss projects.
I'm counting on the Microsoft Whiteboard app due for release "later this year" to be included in Teams. It includes 'collaborative inking'.
The online whiteboard is a basic collaborative tool, I vote to add the functionality

I've been using https://realtimeboard.com/ with my team. Would love to see something like this added to Teams.
Yes, a whiteboard would be great!
Make this feel as if it were the Google Docs of whiteboarding. That should be the gold standard.
Additionally: Build this *as a platform*... If you are going to build interactive elements, build a platform that developers can use to create their own shared experiences for users.

beautiful idea! Use the modern force-touch feature for dragging the cursor or actually painting on the whiteboard.

Using Teams in education seems like a fantastic way to foster collaborative feedback from teachers to students. The ability to have a whiteboard option for real time feedback to a problem, similar to what is available with Blackboard would be a great tool for using Teams in an education setting.

Simple collaborative drawings that can be used with tablets, phones and touch screens (surface hub type device.) It would be useful to be able to mark up wireframes and drawings or pictures on the pictures. Saved history with "snapshots" or unlimited undo. Could work with stylus and with mouse (sticky note concept so i don't have to draw with a mouse)

Would be much appreciated and enhance the teamwork.

yes, this feature is highly needed! It Would also be a workaround, if it would be possible to add a onenote tab in group chats (not team channel). If one of these features would be added, our team could/would switch from Skype to MS-Teams.
Mike baker commented
Yes this is what we are hearing from our Dev teams - whiteboard required
If we were using Skype for Business then a whiteboard would be in the client! SO presumably the capability would exist in the API.
Another reason I wonder why skype is used not skype for business

This would be a fantastic feature for meetings and general team collaboration.
