Leverage intuitive features – With the use of easy-to-use features like shapes and connectors, sticky notes, and more, you can recreate a traditional whiteboard experience in a digital space and allow everyone to contribute to the discussions.
Enjoy a collaboration-ready environment with Zoom Rooms and Zoom Whiteboard
It is well known that everyone has their favorite device when it comes to technology, and organizations are no different when it comes to this. It is nevertheless possible for employees to struggle to pair or integrate their devices with on-site technology as their devices may not be compatible with on-site technology, resulting in the need for specific integrations or the upgrade of their devices in order to experience a seamless experience.
Zoom Rooms provides users with a device-flexible environment where they can use Zoom Whiteboard on a number of different devices, including mobile and touch screen devices, laptops, and many others to leverage a variety of hardware solutions. Simply pair your device with the Zoom Room using a sharing key and you will be able to start collaborating on a whiteboard within the Zoom Room. In the whiteboard section, you will find the option to create a new one or to share one that already exists.
