What are the best tools to replace the whiteboard for remote teams?

Our team gets together regularly and when we do the whiteboard is such a central tool. I'm curious if any other teams have found one or two tools to get the job done while not in the same room.

    Miro is an awesome tool. My team uses it every day. It helps us to create clear communication between developers, designers, and product managers. Developers create architecture maps for product managers, designers, and product managers hold pair design session. We are starting work on every new feature in the Miro. Thank you Miro team!🙌

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    We use Nuclino for all content-centered collaboration. I pretty flexible and works very much like a whiteboard, you can include anything from text and images to live embeds from other tools. Everything is in real time and works quite well for our remote members and freelancers.

    By far the best remote whiteboard tool. It has a lot of tools and templates and even shows your teammates' mouse location on the board which makes it a lot easier to communicate without the need for a screen share.
