Windows 10 Anniversary Update arrives for the Surface Hub

Nearly three months after release, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update has arrived for the Surface Hub, Microsoft’s giant-screen office collaboration tool.

Available over Windows Update, the update is being rolled out in stages, though Microsoft expects all 600 customers who bought the Surface Hub would be running it by early November.

Here are some new features the Surface Hub is getting after installing the Anniversary Update:

Inking in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint - This means users can simply pick up a pen to start annotating their Word documents or Excel sheets. Inking tools can be found in the ‘Draw’ toolbar in the ribbon.

Simultaneous pen and touch support - Both hands or a mixture of pen and touch can now be used to edit content. That’s possible even with several apps opened at the same time.

Save and recall whiteboards directly from OneDrive - It’s now possible to sign in, save and recall whiteboards directing via OneDrive. That’s on top of the ability to send whiteboards as images or OneNote files through email.

Support from 3rd party peripherals - Select A/V peripherals from BiAmp, Jabari, Logitech, and Polycom are now tested and supported by the Surface Hub. Microsoft says it’ll be adding more in the coming months.
