Launch the Lucidspark whiteboarding app directly from Google Meet Series One Board 65 and Desk 27 devices

What’s changing

In September 2023, we announced the next phase of digital whiteboarding for Google Workspace. At that time, we announced that new whiteboarding tools would soon be integrated with Series One Board 65 and Desk 27 devices. By the end of the month, Lucidspark by Lucid Software can be launched directly from these devices. With this integration, users will be able to share and participate in a Lucidspark whiteboard session in a Meet call, either initiated from the Series One Board 65 and Desk 27 or a remote participant on the call.

Who’s impacted

Admins and end users

Why you’d use it

Integrating third-party collaboration tools is a key component of the new digital whiteboarding experience in Google Workspace. Specifically, we’ve heard from our customers that whiteboarding tools like Lucidspark by Lucid Software help their teams work better together with features like infinite canvas, templates, and diagramming. Today, Lucidspark can already be launched inside a Meet call from your laptop. Now, you also have the option to use Lucidspark on the Board 65 and Desk 27 devices within a Meet call.
Later this year we’ll introduce support for launching FigJam and Miro directly from Board 65 and Desk 27 devices. We’ll provide an update here on the Workspace Updates blog with more information at that time. For more information on the future of digital whiteboarding in Workspace, please refer to our initial announcement.
