Microsoft recently launched a major upgrade for Sticky Notes on Windows 10, moving it to the cloud. The updated Sticky Notes allow users to sync their notes across devices, but there’s still no way of getting your notes on your phone.
And that’s changing, soon. As we reported earlier, Microsoft could be bringing Sticky Notes as an app to Android and iOS. In an interesting turn of events, though, Microsoft is now introducing Sticky Notes in OneNote.
The company is actually integrating Sticky Notes right into OneNote, which means your Sticky Notes will now be available through OneNote apps on Android, iOS, and even Windows. Sticky Notes will appear along with your OneNote notebooks, and it’ll be interesting to see how this works going forward. On Android, Sticky Notes has a dedicated tab within the OneNote app where you can see all your Sticky Notes.
The feature is first launching with a preview of OneNote for Android, with a Windows and iOS released expected later on. “Sticky Notes is now available in OneNote Android on Phones for our Beta users. Sticky Notes can sync seamlessly across Windows and iOS. This is a preview release. Will start rolling out soon on Windows and iOS,” Microsoft said in the preview program for OneNote for Android.
Sticky Notes getting integrated into OneNote is quite a fascinating move by Redmond. Users seeing their Sticky Notes within OneNote could get easily confused, and it’ll be interesting to see how the UI of all this works as well.
