Considered Both Products
Miro
Chose Miro
i use Mural and benchmark all whiteboard in 2017, i choose realtimeboard because it was more adapt to design !
Chose Miro
We adopted Miro before we moved from Sketch to Figma, which is part of why it beat out FigJam for us. It was already somewhat entrenched before FigJam became available to us.

Also the licensing model and the fact that Miro is available to and used by most everyone in our corp …
Chose Miro
Mural and FigJam always seemed a bit basic compared to Miro.

Mural also didn't have all of the features and appeared visually to be less developed compared to Miro.
Chose Miro
Initially Mural was the preferred option, but ultimately, the only benefit Mural had the double click option to spawn new stickies, so we quickly went away from it since Miro had far more features that were useful to us. It's been a while since then to be fair.

Microsoft Teams' …
Chose Miro
I didn't use Mural as much so I don't have a great comparison. I know our enterprise went with Miro so we lost Mural access. We do have access to Fig Jam which is part of Figma, but I don't use it because I like Miro and don't want to learn another tool.
Chose Miro
Mural's user interface is elegant and vintage, however it is not very good. I would want to add one more thing: it works well for receiving feedback, but not so well for trying to garner votes. While with the revolutionary collaboration tool Miro, teams can cooperate more …
Chose Miro
Compared to Mural, Miro is more general and can be used by a wider range of professionals. Not only is there a reduced learning curve, but the interface also displays the most popular tools for drawing and editing dynamic types, among other things.
Chose Miro
Miro is much more robust, easy to use and overall superior to Mural
Chose Miro
Both products are similar but have certain elements that are different visually and in terms of the feel and flow. There are minor differences and it comes down to user preferences.
Chose Miro
Miro is more broad, and well suited for other professional not only designers like FigJam. The learning curve is shorter, and the interface displays the most common tools for whiteboard and editing types of dynamics, in addition to other specific features.
Chose Miro
Miro simply outperforms any other tools with it's incredibly natural user experience. Everything just feels right. From keyboard shortcuts to trackpad navigation.
Chose Miro
Miro defeats its competitors due to its easiness of use and user-friendly interface. The softwares customer support desk is also very efficient and reliable.
Chose Miro
Miro works for our organization from a functionality standpoint, as well as having one of the most intuitive user interfaces. Other tools have slightly better teams/board management and administration.
Chose Miro
I believe Miro is user-friendly and offers a lot more features than other tools
Chose Miro
For my part, I really have a user preference for Miro. It allows me to do many of the functions of these other tools more easily. It allows me to create visual compositions, it allows me to do follow-ups and online ideation. I really prefer the responsiveness of the team and …
Chose Miro
performance, responsiveness, new features available in MIRO all the time, easier to use, easier to share
Chose Miro
Miro is more versatile, has more components and allow the integration with other apps easily
Chose Miro
Miro is working extremely well and it has been proven as excellent alternative due to its excellent working efficiency and improved productivity and amazing performance. Miro is a cost effective virtual workspace with advanced features and functionalities for effective …
Chose Miro
Miro has all of the features required to do the job we need it to do
Mural
Chose Mural
I have had an experience of working with all the three above mentioned tools--Miro, InVision, and Lucidchart--and I can confidently say that MURAL (formerly Mural.ly) beats all these three tools when it comes to performing any kind of online collaboration activities, which …
Chose Mural
I like it better than Miro because MURAL's more informal feel makes it encourage conversation and use. Miro also let's you bury too much information "inside" the notes making it really easy to lose sight of important data. I like MURAL better than Lucidspark because of how …
Chose Mural
We used Miro as well and it was not as intuitive and easy to use as Mural is. Most take much longer to understand how to operate Miro , whereas this is not the case for Mural. It is very intuitive and offers a cleaner layout
Chose Mural
Mural has a User Interface that is easier to understand, which allows us to bring newcomers to brainstorm and design sessions without investing time in learning. Mural has more dinamic objects that impact on the presentation and visibility of the work, like having Post it notes …
Chose Mural
Company Decision, I have no competitive knowledge
Chose Mural
We selected MURAL for ease of use, templates, guest access, price point and support.

Miro
Almost all of the tools I use for live meetings and workshop can be adapted to the virtual white board. Brainstorming session of course, but also planning session, SWAT reflection , needs analysis, process flow maps etc. I even use MIRO during live meeting to keep the discussion going afterwards. Great tools for asynchronous discussion. A typical use is for hybrid meetings when some people are in the room and others are remote. A few laptops for the live group discussions, a zoome connection ideally and and hybrid camera, but certainly a virtual board to create a history of our discussion.

I've recommended MURAL to a lot of people in a lot of fields. This is a great tool for any group of people that might stand around a white board if they were in person. Even if they are in person, I still recommend it pretty often because, unlike a white board, MURAL is virtual, so it can go offline with you. I've recommended it to other Software Teams, individual software developers, engineering teams, Sales Managers, Office Staff, Manufacturing teams, and more.

Cons
Miro
  • Sometimes, I wish Miro could have basic calculation capabilities (e.g. in the tables we can create).
  • Sometimes I wish Miro would let me share more clearly with other users and understand their level of access (whether or not to copy parts of the table, what functions are limited, etc.).
  • I'd like Miro to let me add images to the node of my Mindmaps. (not just as hyperlinks)

Mural
  • It'd be nice that the zoom regulation could be easier to manage
  • The advanced features are a little bit easy to adopt. Why not adding some agile trainings, or some other tools to facilitate their adoption
  • A faster and easier way to Integrate with ms office

I use it almost daily, so we'd really like to keep using it. We have a lot of users using it on a daily basis. For me, it is the best online whiteboarding tool with the best functionalities available on the market. Even though people start coming back to the office, we keep using the tool very often

Usability
Miro
It's pretty easy to use. My gripes are with some small idiosyncrasies with selection behavior with objects and editing text. When I move an object, it automatically de-selects it when I am not done with it. I have to click to select again. Text control is challenging and could be improved. It could use a little more styling capability. It's also weird that it behaves differently in a shape then when using the text tool.

Mural
Overall, MURAL is really easy to use, but there are a couple downsides. It's really easy to make areas of the board consistent because double clicking adds stickies that match those around the current one. It's really easy to connect the elements. And it's really easy to organize elements. Inconsistent controls, Panning, Line Connections, and latency are the only issues I had. My biggest issue is that the MURAL mouse buttons are very different from
most similar software. This always causes me problems switching to a
graphics software or 3D modelling software. Because MURAL uses the same button to pan and move elements, it's really easy to move things when panning around. The lines can also be a (sometimes huge) problem because thew will occasionally disappear or connect to things incorrectly. I think this is tied to latency issues which, in addition to causing phantom lines, can sometimes cause confusion to your team.

Superb. very well explained videos. Really helps get the knowledge up on the product. The slides are divided into the topics of usage. I have enjoyed following and implementing all of these slides. The videos are well explained and it is easy to follow. There are tutorials that you can take yourself later. It would be nice however if more training modules were added.

The implementation of Miro was very much straightforward. Since Miro is a completely cloud based solution, it hardly took a week for us to get this implemented and running in our organization. Also, a lot of self help documents and videos were available which made it easy for us to start working with Miro

Way more user-friendly and easier to use than Microsoft products for collaboration. Permissions are easier to set than on SharePoint, multiple people can work on the same document without version control issues that often plague our teams. I will create an entire landing board for each new project and upload related files and details so they are all easily accessed in one space.

Mural was easier to use and share compared with Whiteboard. Whiteboard's functionality is limited. It is also integrated into Teams in an odd way that makes it difficult for team members to refer to old whiteboards. Mural as a stand alone web app is better.

Return on Investment
Miro
  • I was able to complete a Customer Journey Map for a complex legacy product, with dozens of variables end-to-end across the customer experience, collaborating with a large established product support team, in only 2 workshops plus a couple hours "clean up" for presentation.
  • In my experience, working with established experienced teams who support legacy products, creating something as complex as a CJM covering dozens of customer experience variables, can take weeks. I honestly believe that as Miro was quick to understand, easy to use, it allowed all of us to create content with value, far quicker than traditional applications.
