Starting from October 13, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for Surface Hub will be released to customers through Windows Update. It includes third-party support for Biamp, Logitech and Polycom products.

The update will be released in stages with the goal to make it available to all customers by early November.

As part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for Surface Hub, Microsoft has developed the inking and content sharing experiences.

Microsoft has extended inking across Word, Excel and PowerPoint. This means the users can now pick up a pen to start annotating directly on Word docs or Excel sheets on the hub. It has also added a “Draw” toolbar in the ribbon with a variety of inking tools.

Now users can use both hands to edit content on the fly, or use a mixture of pen and touch when multiple people are collaborating with the Surface Hub. This is possible even while several apps are open simultaneously.

Microsoft has added the ability to sign in, to save and recall Whiteboards directly from OneDrive. This helps users pick up right where their last meeting ended with a simple and secure sign-in experience.

Microsoft has added support for third-party peripherals to offer choice and flexibility in audio, video and microphone configuration. it's Surface Hub and Skype for Business engineering teams have successfully tested the following devices;

    Biamp TesiraForte CI
