Here’s everything that’s new in OneNote for October 2016

The Microsoft OneNote team has taken to the Office Blog to highlight a few features which have come to OneNote over the past month. Support for opening password-protected sections in Android, multi-window support on Android, and much more highlight the changes.

Overall, with the past updates, the OneNote team focused on Android and brought back many features which were long requested by users of the Android version of the app.

The first of these features is the ability to open sections which have been protected by passwords from other devices. Next up is the ability for OneNote to work side by side with other Android apps that have multi-window support. Last, but not least, is the capacity to record audio from within the OneNote for Android app, and the ability to insert and open embedded files while using the app to review documents while on the go.

Other updates on non-Android versions of OneNote include the ability to new types of content such as Office 365 videos right onto the OneNote canvas. Additionally, the classroom is also included, as with the Shared cart PC for OneNote feature, teachers can enable students to use personalized OneNote across multiple shared PCs.

How do you use OneNote? The OneNote team has indicated that the ability to edit and personalize your section tabs directly in the Android app is coming soon!
