What’s new?
 
The Jamboard apps for iOS and Android have been redesigned to improve usability, performance, and reliability for Jamboard users. These changes aim to create a more seamless and consistent experience, bringing familiar functionalities from other Google Editors to Jamboard, including: 
  • Ability to take actions such as starring, make a copy of a Jam or copy a link to a Jam
  • Grid view and list view for your Jams on the homescreen
    • View recent, shared with me, starred and trashed Jams as browsable directories
  • Added full portrait and landscape support for apps
Additionally, the team is removing several functions to further streamline the user experience. For more details, see the full article.

Hi Libby,

We've been using Jamboard (via chromebooks and an interactive whiteboard) in our Primary School to deliver lessons (we are almost fully Google now) since April this year and have been really impressed with it.  However, the new update for the app is not as functional as the old version!? Is there anyway we can get this back?  It was great when we had the full screen to write on, now it has borders. Also, is there a way of getting rid of the bar across the top that says the name of the Jam - this takes up a lot of screen.  When inserting an image from a screenshot it is now really poor quality- it used to be fine on the older version. Are you aware of this issue?

Really hope you can help.

Thanks,

Rich.

Hi Rich,

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback! There's currently no way to revert to the previous version of the app. I'll make sure to escalate this information to the product team.

Thanks again,
Libby

Thanks for your prompt reply, Libby.

OK, if there is no way to go back, it was just really great before to have the whole screen as a canvas - the borders in the updated version are just wasted space.   Also, it would be really great to have the option to hide the bar, with the Jam name on it, across the top - again it's space that could be used.

Again, screenshot images are coming out in a lower resolution than they actually are, when inserted in Jamboard.

Really hoping the product team can rectify these asap.

Many Thanks,

Rich.

The handwriting recognition does not capture words or sentences correctly.  I mostly get a mashup of individual letters not lined up to form a word.  Anyone else having this problem?  I’m on an iPad with Apple Pencil.
