Draw on and claim jams from your mobile device with the latest Jamboard release

With this month’s release, we’ve added two new features specifically for Jamboard for mobile devices: drawing tools and the ability to claim jams using near-field communication (NFC).

Draw and edit jams from your mobile device
In the Jamboard mobile app, you can now:

  • Draw using Jamboard brushes
  • Use the color picker
  • Use the handwriting and shape recognition tools
  • Use laser pointer
  • Erase and clear board functions

Claim a jam using NFC-enabled mobile devices
Users can use NFC from their phones to take ownership of jams from a Jamboard or push their jams to the Jamboard using their mobile devices. They can simply tap to own or push a jam to Jamboard.

Updated Icons on the Jamboard device & apps
Toolbar icons on both the Jamboard device and mobile applications have been updated. It is important to note that the arrow that moves the toolbar from the left to the right edge of the Jamboard has been removed in this version.
