Details:

Updated May 17, 2022: As previously announced, Whiteboard is in the process of transitioning to OneDrive for Business (ODB) storage. Based on customer feedback, we’re now extending the opt-in period for ODB storage for Whiteboard. We will resume transitioning to ODB storage in late May and complete by mid June.
You can verify if your organization has already been transitioned by going to the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, searching for Whiteboard and checking. If you’re transitioned, the message will state this and there will be no checkbox for ODB storage.
Note: If you have Surface Hub or MTR devices, you may wish to wait until the new temporary access for shared device accounts is shipped. Opting in before we have new SharePoint setting will mean that those devices cannot see whiteboards shared in a Teams meeting. Users on those devices will need to join the whiteboard from another device.
Note: If your organization is not using Whiteboard you can safely disregard this message.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 66767.
[When this will happen:]
Opt-in to use OneDrive for Business: the early opt-in was made fully available in December.
Making OneDrive for Business the default: we will resume transitioning to ODB storage in late May and complete by mid-June.

2022-05-18MC MessagesUpdated February 24, 2022: As previously announced, the update to OneDrive for Business (ODB) storage for Whiteboard will begin in mid-March and complete in mid-April. Whiteboard on ODB requires Fluid Framework to be enabled for your tenant.
Please note that there are some cases that may still create new boards in Azure.
When a whiteboard is initiated from a Surface Hub during a Teams meeting, the whiteboard will be created in Azure. This will be switched to use ODB later this year.
When older clients are still in use (such as when Whiteboard on Windows is deployed via Intune and hasn’t been updated or a mobile client has not yet updated to the latest version), these clients may still create whiteboards in Azure.
If you need to completely block any usage of Azure storage, please contact Support.
Note: If your organization is not using Whiteboard you can safely disregard this message.

By mid-April the opt-in will no longer be available, and organizations will be transitioned to ODB storage.
