Multimedia

Insert and view content from YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, Sway and more, right alongside your notes. By simply pasting a video link into OneNote for Windows 10, Mac or iOS, a playable thumbnail version will appear next to it. Soon you’ll also be able to embed with copy and paste for OneNote Online.

OneNote for Windows

We updated the work and school sign-in process, so now you can sign in to OneNote for the first time using your Office 365 organization ID. We hope this eliminates potential confusion, saves time and gets people into their notes more quickly.

For OneNote for the Windows Phone, we added audio recording, giving you an additional and easier way to get your ideas down while on the go.

OneNote for iOS

For OneNote on iOS, we’re introducing a few new things that make it easier to organize notes on the canvas your way.

  • First, we’ve brought the lasso tool to iPad for selecting and rearranging groups of audio recordings, images, text, shapes and any other item on the canvas.
  • Second, on iPad, you can rearrange audio recordings, images, text, shapes and (you guessed it) any other item on the canvas by just touching and dragging.

  • Third, you can now rotate images in OneNote on both iPad and iPhone.
  • Fourth, if images are your thing, you can now insert multiple photos on a page at once on iPad and iPhone.

OneNote Online

Smart Lookup—The best viewing experience for reference material is coming soon to OneNote Online. Smart Lookup is powered by Bing and uses the selected text and surrounding content to give you contextually relevant results. Select a phrase, open the context menu, click and look smart. We can’t wait to see what you do with it.
