Microsoft today revealed that they are working on new version of their Surface Hub meeting room collaboration solution. Microsoft is expected to reveal more details about the updated Surface Hub in the first half of this year. Microsoft’s spokesperson said the following regarding the Surface Hub v2:
“Surface Hub created an entirely new device category and we’re thrilled with the strong momentum we have seen across the globe. We’re working on V2 and will share more in the first half of this year.”
Microsoft recently posted the above video to highlight how Surface Hub as a Microsoft 365 connected device enables new ways for teamwork. Surface Hub comes with some unique features such as Whiteboard coauthoring, single sign-on for Office 365 experiences and more. For example, you can turn any PC into a companion device using a Surface Hub. You can mirror your PC display to the Surface Hub screen by Miracast or wired connection. In addition, you can also interact directly with your apps with touch and ink through the Surface Hub. All the inputs and changes you do on Surface Hub are automatically saved to your connected companion device in real time. This allows users to retain all the input from their collaborative session at the end of the meeting.
Even though Microsoft has confirmed that they will reveal information on Surface Hub v2 in the first half of this year, there is no confirmation from them whether they will ship this updated product this year.
