What’s big, red, and supposed to be the next big thing in workplace collaboration? Google’s new Jamboard, a massive touch display and accompanying cloud service that’s supposed to help business users brainstorm together.
Jamboard works like a digital whiteboard, letting users sketch out ideas, attach digital sticky notes, plus bring in content from the web into a single, constantly updating workspace. People can use Jamboard to collaborate both on the 55-inch mega-display of the same name, or using accompanying tablet and smartphone apps for iOS and Android.
The Jamboard is available in private beta for business customers of Google’s G Suite productivity service offering starting Tuesday. The company expects to make it generally available early next year.
