Microsoft OneNote for Android Updates Adds Page Sharing Feature

Microsoft OneNote for Android has a new update that is rolling out which brings a handful of new features to the note taking app.  Perhaps the biggest new feature in the app is the ability to share a page with others.  If you are running Android Marshmallow or later, you can use the Share a Page feature from the Share pane so you can share your notes with others more quickly.  There is also an improved web clipper for Android in this release.  While it is still considered a Preview (translation:  beta) feature, it will allow you to capture anything on your store it in OneNote.

Along with these updates, there is improved Cut/Copy/Paste support along with the ability to access formatting tools quickly through the improved commanding bar in the app.

While the new features are nice, there are also some fixes and additional support in this release of Microsoft OneNote for Android.  Most importantly, a PDF rendering issues has been fixed.  In the previous build, a bug prevented PDFs from rendering or rendering in very low quality.  In my testing this morning for this post, that seems to have been resolved.  There is also new support for accented characters in the app.

If you already have OneNote on your Android phone or tablet, look for the OTA update to hit you over the course of the next few days.  If you are new to OneNote, it is a free app and a free service which you can download from the Play Store.
