Microsoft is testing a beautifully new redesigned OneNote app on Android – OnMSFT.com – July 12, 2022 That new home tab will even show all notes from all sign-in accounts from a single view, letting you tap on a note to edit it. And, if you want, you can switch views from the grid to list, to see more details. All notes can be rearranged on the home tab by dragging them around, and you’re free to sort by the usual filters like note type, page, or by account. Microsoft even added gestures within OneNote mobile, letting you swipe to sync, long press for quick actions to copy or move or share.
A new design is coming to OneNote for Android. Microsoft is updating the well-liked note-taking Android app with a new home screen, new aesthetics, and much more, as the firm revealed on July 11. Microsoft wants you to be able to “immediately capture what’s essential to you and recall with confidence” thanks to this new appearance, which will be gradually introduced starting with Android mobile build 16.0.15128.20270 and later. The new home page, which lets you take notes using text, voice, ink, or a camera, is the centrepiece of the revamp. Additionally, there is a preview card for your notes here that resembles a Windows-11 sticky note. This is connected to a rapid capture bar at the bottom of the app, which enables you to quickly take notes.
As for the in-app features, the quick capture bar has an upgraded Microsoft Lens integration. This will let you choose and filter your images in new ways, or scan documents to extract text. Voice dictation gets tweaked in this new release, too, so that you can use voice commands to format notes. In this current state, Microsoft isn’t planning to roll out the new experience over to tablets or dual-screen phones. The company says it is working to bring these features to OneNote across other platforms soon.
