Updated December 15, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
The ability to format all or a portion of text in text boxes, notes and shapes is coming soon to Whiteboard web, Teams and the Windows app (mobile users will be able to view formatted text but not format it).
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 100497.
This brings text formatting functionality in Whiteboard, optimizing the default font style (for text boxes) & allowing you to format text among other functionalities!
When this will happen
Roll out will begin in mid-November and is expected to be completed by early January 2023 (previously late November 2022).
How this will affect your organization
Users will be able to apply Bold, Italics and/or Underline formatting to all or a portion of text in text boxes, notes & shapes. They can also choose to format the color of text in text boxes. Moreover, each new text box that will be added will have Segoe UI font for higher legibility & also coherence with text in notes & shapes.
Note: The font of existing text boxes will not be changed.
What you need to do to prepare
The feature will be rolled out automatically on Whiteboard web, Teams and the Windows app to all customers.
