Zoom says with the global workforce embracing hybrid work environments, there is a need for solutions to foster ideation and teamwork among distributed colleagues.
“Zoom brings over a decade’s worth of experience in exceptional video communications to this new solution, which businesses need to keep information flowing in a secure and easily-managed fashion.”
“Zoom Whiteboard is arming teams with the power of continuous communication in an easy-to-use solution that provides a virtual space to collaborate before, during, and after a meeting,” adds Zoom chief product officer Oded Gal.
Whiteboard anytime, anywhere
Zoom says without a whiteboard, it can be challenging to exchange ideas across a broad audience.
The whiteboard, which can be used in a web browser, tablet, desktop, or Zoom Rooms for Touch, facilitates asynchronous and real-time collaboration, serving as virtual space for teams to collaborate and capture ideas together.
It is also integrated with Zoom Meetings and Rooms for Touch devices like Dten D7 and Neat Board with support for Zoom Chat coming soon.
Zoom Whiteboard showcases the following features:
Dashboard and sharing: Create new, manage existing, and share access to whiteboards. Zoom Whiteboard can be shared internally or externally with anyone that has a Zoom account, with the option to export and save.
Notes and comments: Use sticky notes to highlight important ideas.
Shapes and connectors: Shapes are easily created, and connectors can be used to instantly attach those shapes.
Extendable Canvas: Create up to 12 pages with navigation; users can easily add images.
