What Is The New Zoom Whiteboard Feature?

Recently, Zoom released its Whiteboard feature. When you want to get together with colleagues, this collaboration feature lets you easily capture concepts, ideas, and processes with others in real time. And at your disposal are a set of easy-to-use tools.

Using these features, the Zoom Whiteboard is the perfect online collaboration tool for remote and hybrid teams to meet, interact, and engage. This digital canvas makes brainstorming, planning, and real-time presentations easier.

Suppose your client has a Zoom account. In that case, the Whiteboard tool lets you stay connected with them when collaborating on projects wherever they are in the world. It’s easy and affordable, and you can share your whiteboards with other Zoom account holders.
