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.

The limitless surface ensures that imagination has room to grow and provides space for everyone's ideas.

Microsoft Whiteboard Preview lets you create in whatever way feels most natural to you. Using your pen, you can jot down notes, draw precise illustrations, or search for images on the web.

Whiteboard doesn't limit you to a single whiteboard, so you can work on multiple different whiteboards and work on them whenever you want. Whether you use pen or touch, Microsoft Whiteboard Preview recognizes your intent and delivers your desired outcomes in an instant.

The app is free for anyone, but one participant with an Office 365 personal, work, or school account is needed for team collaboration.

The appropriately named Whiteboard app is rolling out in a public preview today.

The app is now available to download from Microsoft store and you can check the official demo video and features list below. This app will eventually replace the existing whiteboard app running on SurfaceHub, but for now, they'll run in tandem.
