What is the Google Jamboard?

You love Google, you love Chrome, you love G Suite, and now you’re going to love the Jamboard—but what is it?

The Google Jamboard is a 55-inch digital whiteboard that utilizes G Suite services for real-time collaboration. Everyone has had to write on the board in class at some point in their lives, but with Jamboard that writing can go out across the world! With the included stylus and eraser you can write, draw, and even turn sketches into polished images with the help of image recognition technology. Jamboard also has image and web-search functionality with the Google search engine. It also has the ability to add Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides into your jams, creating a seamless collaborative environment.

Not only is Jamboard an extremely responsive digital whiteboard, but a conferencing device as well. Even better; they aren’t mutually exclusive. With the built in HD camera and microphone, you can use Google Calendar and Hangouts Meet to have video meetings the same way you always have, except with the added ability to present your whiteboard to those in the Hangout.

Collaboration doesn’t stop at the Jamboard! You have the ability to create, edit, and share jams from your phone, tablet, and computer, meaning any device in the workplace or classroom can be involved in real time, with up to 50 people at once.
