Among the Surface devices unveiled at the recent Microsoft Event was the announcement of the Surface Slim Pen 2. The biggest improvement in the new Slim Pen 2 is the addition of haptic feedback, which Microsoft claims is designed to replicate the friction felt when writing on paper.
For haptics to be enabled, a few criteria need to be met: 1) You have a Surface Pro 8 or a Surface Laptop Studio, 2) you are running Windows 11, and 3) the software you are using to write/draw on has been updated to support Surface Slim Pen 2 haptics.
Assuming you meet the first two criteria, it’s then up to software developers to update and enable their applications to support the haptics functionality. Here is a list of applications that have already been updated.
