Participating from your laptop or tablet

Using a laptop or tablet to control a Miro board in a meeting is incredibly easy and convenient. The board detects which type of device you are using and automatically updates the controls to match your needs. Laptops will focus on pad and keyboard control, PCs will use a mouse, and on large touch displays you will have a premium touch-display experience, distinguishing between your fingers, pen, and palm, ensuring a seamless and effortless in-room experience.

It bridges the gap between physical and virtual attendees, making online collaboration as easy and effective as possible.

Aligning on a topic, when it works best for you

This is called an asynchronous meeting, and with the increase of hybrid meetings, this is far more common than you might think! This is where the new Miro TalkTracks tool comes into action. It allows you to record your face and actions over a Miro board as you are having your meeting. Once you are done you can share it with others, who can react to your session at their own time. This way everyone can align on the points after the meeting is done.
