How to use the Google Meet Whiteboard in a meeting

Whiteboards are commonly used in meetings, especially in reflection sessions as a way of seeing what we are discussing and to keep track of ideas. Whiteboards have become popular and are a great tool to use in online meetings. Pulling on them may not be the same as drawing on a corporate board but it does the job.

Share Google Meet Whiteboard

Googleboard Whiteboard is basically a Jamboard by Google. Another valid whiteboard is another Google product. In Google Meet, it appears with the name whiteboard but you are using Jamboard.

The created whiteboard can be shared. Each whiteboard has its own unique connection. The easiest way to share the whiteboard is to copy the link and share it over email or chat but that will not allow users to see, and not edit.

To share it more securely, click the Share button at the top right of the jamboard. Add emails to the users you want to share the board with, and click Send. If you’ve ever shared a folder in Google Drive, this UI looks pretty familiar.


When you create a whiteboard, everyone in the meeting will see it. To access the whiteboard, other users will have to click the activity button in a meeting. Since the board is already created, it will appear in the Whiteboard panel. Users can create multiple whiteboards for one meeting and everyone in a meeting will have the opportunity to interact with it. A link for each whiteboard created within a meeting will appear in the Whiteboard panel. If a meeting ends, and the same meeting is resumed (same connection), the whiteboards created in the previous session will not be listed.
