Microsoft today announced the availability of its Whiteboard app for all Windows 10 PCs with touch screen. The app was first announced by the company in May and was available only for the company’s Surface Pro devices.

The company is launching the Whiteboard app in a preview which uses intelligent ink to recognize drawings and turns them to standard shapes. The app automatically saves your boards making it easy for users to pick up from where they had left off.

The Whiteboard comes with a new eye catching ink shades and a virtual ruler to give more flexibility and precision to the shades. The Whiteboard also includes a virtual lasso which lets you drag and resize the content making it easy to manage ideas and keep things organized.

The app is currently rolling out today in all English versions of Windows 10 and will be available for download via the Microsoft Store in a couple of days. The Whiteboard will act as a great tool especially for creative teams who would like to see the drawings in a live video.

The app can be downloaded for free from the Microsoft Store, but one participant needs to have an active Office 365 subscription for a multi party collaboration.
