Introducing Zoom Whiteboard, A New Visual Collaboration Solution

Modern communication solutions like video conferencing have transformed our ability to collaborate and get more done together in a digital space, whether in the office, at home, in the classroom, or somewhere in between. However, capturing and directing the energy, spontaneity, and free-flowing creativity that comes with an in-person connection in a virtual meeting can be difficult.

With Zoom Whiteboard, you can brainstorm and collaborate on a persistent, expandable, digital canvas. In-person and remote teams can ideate from Zoom-enabled devices, providing you and your team with the intuitive features you need to collaborate. 

Reimagine the drawing board with Zoom Whiteboard 

We’ve redesigned our virtual whiteboarding experience to bring you the all-new Zoom Whiteboard, a cross-platform visual collaboration solution built right into Zoom Meetings and Zoom Rooms for Touch devices like the DTEN D7 and Neat Board, with support for Zoom Chat coming soon. 


Neat Board

Complement your Zoom Rooms with a dedicated Companion Whiteboard, like the new DTEN ONboard, the first purpose-built interactive touch display for advanced whiteboarding coming soon.

And because Zoom Whiteboard is persistent, you can seamlessly access your saved whiteboards at any time — you can even create and access your whiteboards in Zoom Rooms, no meeting required! 

Empowering secure, intuitive, and flexible collaboration

Zoom Whiteboard provides teams with the features they need to succeed:

  • A unified space for collaboration – Provide on-site and hybrid teams with a unified space where they can visually structure their ideas and collaborate on persistent online whiteboards.

An online whiteboard solution for modern collaboration

The ability to collaborate visually in a digital space is an invaluable tool for teams in a wide range of industries and across many use cases, including: 

  • Education – Create an engaging space where students can share ideas, work together to solve problems and enjoy a visual breakdown of concepts and lessons. Teachers can create a visual representation of lesson plans during faculty meetings. 
  • Training – Provide new hires with simple visual diagrams they can amend and make notes on, create engaging team-building and problem-solving exercises, and help retain new information during onboarding sessions. 
  • Project management – Streamline the sharing, review, and editing of project roadmaps, and help your teams keep a close eye on your progress by using an online whiteboard to visually document process flows, track changes, and more.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
