Microsoft rolls out Redesigned OneNote update on all platforms

More details on the company's suite of mobile apps for Android will likely be available later this year. OneNote has seen several notable updates in the past including support for YouTube, Vimeo, and Sway. The new design will get rolled out to users on Windows 10, Mac, iOS, and Android over the coming weeks, in case you are wondering. It also conducted hundreds of interviews, as well as reviewing telemetry from real-world users "to understand how to improve keyboard shortcuts and the screen reader experience".

According to the company, the update provides a new design that's focused on ease of use for all learners, with particular emphasis on features for those with mobility impairments and for those who use screen readers. The update has simplified navigation by placing all navigation controls in one area on the left of the app. This allows users to easily switch between their notes and dramatically improves usability with assistive technologies. Other consistency-oriented changes are individually minor, but they add up and result in less variation between the user experience of different OneNote variants, with Microsoft stating that this redesign should be particularly useful for students and educational workers who rely on OneNote in environments with a wide variety of devices. Microsoft has gone to great lengths to increase the visual and functional consistency of the app on different screens, therefore reducing friction in movement.
