Back in August, Microsoft released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for Windows 10 PCs.  Today, the company is officially rolling out the Anniversary Update for the Surface Hub, introducing a range of new features and an improved user interface for the Surface Hub. Just like Windows 10 on any other devices, users can update their Surface Hub from Windows Update.

With the Anniversary Update, Microsoft is bringing inking support to Word, Excel and PowerPoint which is a major new feature that should have been available since day 1. Nevertheless, it is now available and Surface Hub owners can now draw anything like on Office apps by going to the Draw tab on these apps.

In addition to inking support, Microsoft is bringing the ability to use both Pen and Touch at the same time — for instance, if you are working on the Surface Hub with Touch, your colleague can work alongside you with a Pen. Pretty neat. Alongside this feature, Microsoft is also adding the ability to save and re-open Whiteboards thanks to OneDrive — if you start working on a Whiteboard and decided to continue working on it at a later date, Windows 10 Anniversary Update will now allow you to do so.

And lastly, Microsoft is adding support for some third-party peripherals to the Surface Hub, including support for BiAmp TesiraForte CI, Jabra 810, Logitech Group, Logitech PTZ Pro, and Polycom CX5100. There are a number of other improvements that are coming with the Anniversary Update, including improvements for Skype for Business, and more.

Anniversary Update for the Surface Hub is definitely quite neat, especially the introduction of Inking support on Office apps. Microsoft will continue to improve the Surface Hub with software updates in the near-future, in the meantime, let us know what you think of the latest update in the comment section below.
