Overview of Jamboard

Jamboard can be used to host live sessions, create and edit content, control who can remotely access a "jam," and connect to other Jamboards. The tablet app and the physical board can be used to perform all of the editing tasks. The phone app and the web viewer have a subset of the editing features.

Example Jamboard Tools

 Draw: Choose a pen and use a finger or a stylus to draw. Draw with other people at the board at the same time or collaborate with people on the tablet app. Make a quick doodle or sketch, and let AutoDraw find a polished image that matches the drawing.
 
 Handwriting recognition: Use a finger or the stylus to write text. The tool converts handwriting into printed text.
 
 Insert sticker or stencil: Add images from the gallery to the "jam." Stickers added to the frame exist as objects which can be easily resized and moved around.
 
 Search web: Enter text to search for information. On the keyboard that appears, use Glide Typing in addition to the regular keyboard.
 
 Add a Drive file: To add Google Drive content to a "jam," use the Jamboard companion app on a tablet or phone.
 
Save a Jam: Save a "jam" and access it later. Tap Menu Add owner and share. Enter an email address, then tap Add Confirm owner.
