The Google Jamboard is the tech giant's latest attempt to improve efficiency and collaboration in the workplace. While consumers might be used to Google software that fulfills that purpose, the Google Jamboard is hardware that rethinks an office standard: the whiteboard.

The Jamboard is a 55 inch touchscreen with 4K resolution. It also comes with built-in speakers, HD camera, and Wi-Fi. Further, the Jamboard includes a stylus and eraser that are automatically recognized by the system through the touchscreen, eliminating the need for batteries or pairing.

The product was designed to go hand in hand with G Suite, Google's collection of business-based apps (which were formerly known as Google Apps for Work.) It allows users to pull up work from Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides, as well as images or content from the internet.
