A whiteboard is an essential collaboration tool in any office for teams. Now that the office has gone remote, it’s time for the whiteboard to go digital too. Here are some of the best digital whiteboard apps you can use for free.

Microsoft has recently launched a whiteboard app, but it’s not available to use on non-Surface devices yet. Google has its own Jamboard for teams, but that’s a paid app as part of the G Suite. If all you need is a simple whiteboard to use with your colleagues, there are better options available right now.

Click and drag on the blank canvas to start drawing, much like any paint app. Crayon also lets you use multiple colors, so you could use a simple trick like assigning one color to each person. Double-click anywhere to open a text box that you can type in, which will then be imprinted on the canvas.
