We’re excited to announce the upcoming refresh to the OneNote app on Android Mobile to help you quickly capture what’s important to you and remember with confidence.

 

The new Home tab on your OneNote Mobile app allows you to:

  • Capture naturally with text, voice, ink, and camera
  • Remember with ease with rich note preview cards

 

The Home page displays your recent notes from all your signed-in accounts in a single unified view. You can tap on a note card to view or edit the note or long press on it to take a quick action.

 

You can switch between Grid view to see more notes at the same time) and List view (to see more detail on each note card) to select your preferred view.

 

NOTE: Learn how to connect your Samsung Notes to OneNote here.

Sort your notes by Updated Date, Created Date or Alphabetically, and use the filter options to filter notes by note type, Notebook Page, Sticky Note, Samsung Note, or by signed in account.

The new quick capture bar at the bottom of the page allows you to easily take notes within the mobile app in your preferred modality with a single click.

 

A few features on the quick capture bar include: 

  • The upgraded Microsoft Lens integration to allow you to choose from a range of new filters and image editing tools.
    • You can scan a document and extract text directly onto your note.
  • Voice dictation allows you to dictate your notes in a number of languages (9 official, 18 preview). Learn more here.
    • You can also use voice commands to format your notes.
