Miro looks to move beyond the whiteboard and support hybrid work

Miro has unveiled a host of new features and integrations, designed to support hybrid work and take it primarily beyond a whiteboarding tool.

Collaboration software makers have added a number of new features this week, including three updated frameworks for its Miro developer platform, new integrations with Google Meet and Webex video conferencing tools, and improvements to interactive presentations.

“Miro’s announcement this week set out visual collaboration, which goes beyond just whiteboarding, is the company’s vision for the future,” said Varun Parmar, chief product officer in charge at the Joan Mirো meeting.

Support the work of hybrids

Since most companies continue to somehow manage the hybrid work model, Parmer says many people are experiencing the worst parts of both personal and remote work, wanting to improve the Miro meeting experience, as well as post-meeting experience.

The new Miro Application Integration Meeting with Google Workspace allows users to see Google to access Miro through the activity panel to start creating a new Miro board or an existing board to perform.

The new Native WebExboard app allows WebEx users to launch any mirror board directly inside a meeting. The Miro web app can also be used on webex boards outside of meetings.

Miro has also introduced new integrations with Airtable, ClickUp, Gtmhub, Smartsheet, and Unito.

In addition to integration, Miro has introduced more features to run interactive presentations in a hybrid work setup. Magic Organize puts the frames in order, while an algorithm analyzes the position of the frame and recommends the correct presentation sequence.

An update to the Miro Smart Meeting also allows the soundboard, a tool that allows users to insert a variety of sounds, including “perception” and “drum sounds,” which can be used at any time during the presentation.

Miro Developer Platform

In addition to updates to better support hybrid teams, Miro has also launched its updated developer platform. The platform has three frameworks that enable developers to integrate user-oriented and server-side applications with Miro with any web-based application.

To be updated within the framework include:

  • Miro developer platform Rest API, which enables the development of server-side applications to improve content synchronization and security management.
  • Miro Developer Platform Web SDK, a JavaScript library that supports the development of applications and integrations running within Miro.
  • Mirro Live Embed, a framework that allows a Mirror board to directly access third-party applications, for both synchronous and asynchronous work.

Gorgeous gap calculation for product management

Miro has also announced some new features aimed at accelerating work for product development teams and bridging the gap between product management, engineering and design.

The newly announced Apps for Agile helps teams accelerate, improve results, and innovate in the general workflow. Also, Advanced Diagramming now includes Shape Pack, Swimming, Callout Shape and Preset Diagram theme color packs to help create more professional looking diagrams.

Parmar said the product development workflow is an area where Miro will continue to support the hybrid team through its collaborative capabilities to make changes in the future, as well as continue.

“[Miro customers] Much more solidarity and video conferencing and audio conferencing will begin around the workflow as well as looking at how work can be brought into the product in an asynchronous way, ”he said.
