Microsoft has unveiled a major update to OneNote for Android that brings with it a new home page that opens by default when you launch the app. This page displays your most recent notes and items in your notebooks, including text, voice memos, handwriting, and photos.
In addition, the application received an updated user interface with an emphasis on gesture control. Now, to synchronize notes, just swipe down, and a long press on the card on the home page will open a menu with options, where there will be items such as “Delete”, “Move”, “Copy”, “Share” and so on.
There’s a new shortcut bar at the bottom of the app that lets you jump to creating a text or voice note, taking a photo, or handwriting with a single tap.
The new OneNote interface is not available on Android tablets and the Surface Duo foldable smartphone. Microsoft promises that similar changes will soon appear on other platforms.
You need to install the latest version of the app to try out the new design of OneNote for Android from Google Play. The update is being rolled out in waves, so it may take a few days for the new version to be available on your device.
