Microsoft's GigJam Collaboration Service Extends Preview
Microsoft's new GigJam application, which enables people to share parts of what they are working on with colleagues for the sake of gathering feedback and input, is expanding the preview it started two months ago.
GigJam is now available on OS X and Windows and it will soon be coming to iOS. Plus, before the end of the year, GigJam will be part of Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud software suite, right alongside Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OutLook, OneNote, OneDrive, and Sway, Vijay Mital, general manager of Microsoft’s Ambient Computing team, wrote in a blog post on the news.
“GigJam helps you spontaneously and momentarily involve others in your work,” Mital wrote. “You just summon all the live information you need, divvy it up by circling what you want to share and crossing out what you don’t and control what others can see or even co-work with you in real time. Now you can finally involve others inside and outside your organization to help you get work done in the moment.”
