From that point forward, the app's just been accessible as a private beta, however beginning today, Microsoft's putting forth it up as an open beta for anybody with a Windows 10 gadget.

No word on whether or when the application may go to other working frameworks, yet given Microsoft's portable technique recently, I wouldn't be excessively stunned, making it impossible to see it land on Android and iOS gadgets not long from now. Focused on pen and touch input, the app comes with a slew of built-in inking tools, including rulers and various pen styles. Now that it's in public preview, more users and organizations will be able to test the app out ahead of its full, official launch.

The appropriately named Whiteboard app is rolling out in a public preview today. The company said the new app will replace the native Surface Hub whiteboard app when it becomes generally available in a "few months".
