OneNote gets a big update for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile

Posted in:

The latest update to the OneNote app for Windows 10 brings several new features to the popular note-taking app by Microsoft. The latest version is available on Windows Store for PCs as well as mobile devices and Windows Holographic devices (No, I don’t have a HoloLens yet to check!).

According to the changelog on the Windows Store, the latest update includes a new highlighter to select important text and allows you to remove all formatting in just one click. You can also create a new notebook using your work or school account as well as your personal account.

As we saw in the latest version for Office 365 users on the Office Insider track, OneNote now finally allows sharing a single page without the need to share the whole notebook. You can send a viewing link to a single page allowing the recipient to see the page in a browser without needing OneNote app or signing-in on their end. Also, you can use the Share button in any app to send photos or files to OneNote in a seamless fashion.

As part of the latest update, if you paste a link to an Office 365 Video or a Microsoft Form, you can interact with it directly on the page. You can also make your pictures accessible to screen readers by adding alternative text.

The latest OneNote update adds some much needed, nifty little features, and also showcases how new offerings in Office Insider builds end up being mainstream features for the general public.
