Canva, the global visual communications platform, today launched Canva Whiteboards, a new and collaborative way to seamlessly organize ideas and bring them to life. Available for free on the web, desktop, and mobile, Whiteboards brings teams together to collaborate, anytime and anywhere.
“After more than a year of development, we’re excited to launch Canva Whiteboards to the world – bringing the power our community knows and loves about Canva and enabling them to collaborate with their team on an infinite canvas,” said Melanie Perkins, CEO and co-founder of Canva. “In this day and age with teams working worlds apart, we believe the right visual communication tools will not only help teams come together with ease but will also fuel greater collaboration and productivity in the workplace. This is at the heart of Whiteboards, and we’re excited to see the magic it will unlock for our community around the world.”
From workshopping projects to project planning and brainstorming, Canva Whiteboards is a simple and interactive way to map out your next big idea with all the familiarity and magic of the Canva editor:
- Seamless integration with Canva Presentations: Kick off your workshop with a Canva Presentation and expand your page to a Canva Whiteboard with a simple click of a button — creating an infinite space for brainstorming. If you’re looking for inspiration, select from bespoke Whiteboard templates including flow charts, mind maps, wireframes, kanban boards, seating charts, org designs, flow charts, and more.
- Real-time collaboration: Canva’s real-time collaboration empowers you to capture ideas and brainstorm with your team instantly, from anywhere in the world. Colorful cursors show where your collaborators are and what they’re adding to the Whiteboard. Easily respond to ideas or ask questions with comments and reply with emojis and stickers.
- Extensive media library: Access to Canva’s media library of over 100 million images, videos, audio tracks and graphics means there’s no need to search elsewhere for content — everything you need to brainstorm is within Canva.
Introducing Canva for Teams
Canva has also unveiled Canva for Teams, a new paid subscription plan for teams of all sizes looking to create professional content together and collaborate with premium workplace tools and content management workflows.
“As companies embrace flexible and hybrid-working models, there’s an increasing reliance on technology to communicate and collaborate,” said Jen Howard, VP, Canva for Teams. “In today’s visual economy, workplaces need compelling ways to meet the needs of globally distributed teams. Canva for Teams, our new paid subscription plan, is built to empower millions around the world to seamlessly create and collaborate together.”
Canva for Teams includes all the magic previously in Canva Pro and unlocks features exclusively on Canva for Enterprise, to become the new plan for teams of two or more people. It includes features like brand controls, approval workflows, and template locking. With the rollout of Canva for Teams, Canva Pro is now Canva’s paid subscription for solo users like entrepreneurs and content creators.
“We are happy to unveil both Canva Whiteboards and Canva for Teams in the Philippines as we continue to empower content creators, negosyantes, and teams of all sizes to collaborate at scale, wherever they may be. With Filipinos going digital now more than ever, Canva Whiteboards will be instrumental in bringing any team’s ideas to life while the introduction of Canva for Teams will empower businesses with an all-in-one design tool they need in creating impactful content,” said Yani Hornilla-Donato, Country Manager of Canva Philippines.
