M365 Changelog: (Updated) Introducing Microsoft Whiteboard App in Teams

MC543868 – Updated May 2, 2023: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

The new Microsoft Whiteboard app in Teams allows you to create, collaborate and share right within Teams, outside of Teams meetings.

You can now easily access all your whiteboards in one single place inside Teams, pre-prep a board for your next meeting or add a whiteboard tab to your favorite chat/channels to collaborate with your team asynchronously. 

When this will happen:

Rollout begins in mid-April and will be completed by the mid-May (previously late April).  

How this will affect your organization:

There are no changes required, the Whiteboard app comes pre-installed in Teams to supercharge your visual collaboration with a seamless experience. 

What you need to do to prepare:

There is no action required. You have an option to pre-pin the Whiteboard app for users in your tenant. To pre-pin Whiteboard, a setup policy can be created and assigned to the users in Teams Admin Center.
