Leak of Windows Whiteboard app gives a closer look at hyped software

No one is immune to leaks in the tech world and today it’s Microsoft’s turn as a version of its anticipated Whiteboard app looks like its leaked on the web.

The video above from WindowsBlogItalia a, well, Italian Windows blog which purports to show the app in use, free writing, image insertion, shapes and all.

As flagged by The Verge, the leaked version seems to be an “Education Preview” of the software, and seems to be as cool as we expected it to be. One note, though: One of the coolest parts of the software the collaborative tool that lets users simultaneously draw and edit the same project isn’t available in the leak.

Our own Lance Ulanoff got to see the software up close at Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington office back in May.

The tool’s builders included a feature called “live ink,” wherein collaborators’ ink strokes are visible as they’re made, and each collaborator is identified thanks to an icon, called local ink identity.

The system also includes shape recognition. Draw a circle and it will turn into a cleaner and more manipulable one.

The app is also a powerful demonstration for Microsoft’s new, impressive Surface Pen.

The Whiteboard app is currently “available in private previews in Surface Hub” and Microsoft has only added they plan to roll it out to more users later in 2017.
