Bing search tool coming to Microsoft’s Whiteboard this month
- Being a Microsoft Whiteboard user has never sounded better than right now.
- A new Roadmap entry shows that a Bing search bar is coming to the app soon.
- Just in case you don't want to use this new addition, you can easily turn it off.
It’s safe to say that a lot of us have used Microsoft’s Whiteboard at least once since this software was first released by the Remond tech company.
In case you aren’t really that familiar with Whiteboard, it’s a free digital canvas that helps people create and visualize ideas and share them with others.
It is available across nearly all platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and Teams, and it receives some pretty interesting features from time to time.
This month’s rollout will interest and intrigue you at the same time, as it provides a search option that users will make the most of.
Microsoft makes it easier to search for images in Whiteboard
After digging a bit through the Microsoft 365 Roadmap logs, we discovered that there’s an interesting new addition coming to Whiteboard in June 2022.
According to the above-mentioned website, Microsoft is working on the ability to integrate Bing image search with Whiteboard for Surface devices, web, desktop, and Teams.
Needless to say, this will allow users to search images online through Bing inside the aforementioned Whiteboard clients.
Note that, if you don’t like this new feature, you can easily deactivate it from the Settings menu, so don’t even worry about that.
Just as it says on the Roadmap page, the service can be controlled by an optional connected experiences policy, so technically, there is an option to control which users have access to the functionality.
The tech giant is currently working on the feature and has promised to bring it to the public this month, but delays are expected.
