Microsoft Whiteboard for Windows 10 Leaks

Microsoft announced in May that it would port the Surface Hub Whiteboard app to Windows 10 PCs this year. But WindowsBlogItalia has gotten their hands on a leaked copy.

Better still, if you’re into this kind of thing, they can tell you how to install the leaked app for yourself as well.

I’m not going to help with that. But Whiteboard is a natural addition to any pen-enabled Windows PC, like Microsoft’s Surface Pro or Surface Studio. And like its Surface Hub counterpart, it will allow for multi-user access.

I first wrote about Whiteboard for Windows 10 back in May, when it was announced, noting that it provided two-way inking, intelligent ink conversion (shapes with accurate measurements and so on), real-time collaboration with remote users, and more. I suspect it will closely resemble the updated Whiteboard app for Surface Hub that shipped as part of the Creators Update.

But WindowsBlogItalia provides a few more details, including a (badly translated) peek at the release notes, which notes three main areas of capability: Use ink to enable smart features, use the power of the web, and work together from different places.

Anyway, it’s possible that this leak means a public release could happen soon.
