Hello OneNote Beta Users, 
We are happy to announce that we are releasing a new build of OneNote today to the Beta channel.
 
What’s in this update?
 
1.       O365 sign in – We heard your feedback. With this beta update, you can sign in to OneNote using your School or Work O365 account without having you sign in first with your personal account. As part of the sign-in, you can provide either your Work/School account or your personal account and based on the email entered we will take you through the password authentication process. We have also added support for ADAL (Azure AD Authentication Library) so that if your School or Work requires ADAL, you will be able to sign in to OneNote. As part of the ADAL integration, anyone who is already signed in with O365 account will be asked to provide the sign in credentials again after the upgrade.
2.       Sign-in Later – With this update, we are also running an experiment on the sign-in experience (ONLY some users would randomly get selected for this feature). If you reset the app or install OneNote on a new Android device, you might get the option to sign-in later after trying OneNote. In this case, all notes you take will be saved to your local device and will sync to the cloud storage after you sign-in. You will need to sign-in to access any of your recent or previous notes that you took on other devices.
 
And there some quality fixes in this build as well.
 
Please upgrade. We would love to hear your feedback or questions.
 
Thanks
Nithya Sampathkumar
Program Manager, OneNote Team

Just got an update from play store for Microsoft Remote Desktop. Quite opposite approach to OneNote.

It says in the green box where the updates info is 'We're all about addressing your feedback and this release addresses some important feedback you've given us'

At least some Microsoft departments action quickly the feedbacks. Would like that approach adopted by ALL Microsoft development teams.....

I think no because unlike word due to OneNotes design you can't have structured documents so any reflow would make content unreadable 90% of the time

The audio recording feature in the desktop version that syncs with the notes as they're being typed is ingenious! PLEASE PLEASE add that feature to tables and phones! Thanks!

Question on release level. I signed up to be a tester a while ago but I'm not certain updates are coming.  I'm currently on Version 15.0.3930.1007.  Is this is the beta? I see 4/6 announcement.

+Ayush Rastogi​ sorry it was typo... In onenote everytime i open the app there is a notification saying syncing... That annoys... And main problem is if you quickly open and close the app than the sync notification will just stick and will not go anywhere untill i reopen the app or force stop it.

Since OneNote Android beta started in July 2014 there have been 8 releases; this is an estimate based on the Announcement channel since I cannot find a changelog. Most of these releases have not offered new features, and since August 2014 there have been only 3 releases (11/13/2014, 12/23/2014, and 04/06/2015). When will a changelog and feature roadmap be made available? And when will Microsoft start beta testing the functionality it has provided to iOS users for at least a year?

Come on OneNote developers... I see Evernote now has reduced their pricing I guess to entice more people.
It is looking appealing, even though I much prefer OneNote.

Please release some new functionalities (and more user friendly formatting in phone version) I don't want to have to move to Evernote.

Two of us now have asked to see a road map for development on Android. Do we have anything to look forward too? Or not? Should I move to Evernote now?

If the next 3 releases over the next 12 months are just going to be about logging in and syncing, I think I will seriously cry..

I agree.  I started moving from Evernote to OneNote when Evernote's prices went up by so much.  Now however, I am thinking about moving back.  I much prefer OneNote's layout, but the fact it still lacks basic functionality found in their iOS application leads me to believe they do not care at all about the dominant OS.  

I will continue to support those developers who take Android seriously as opposed to those who treat it as a step child.

Would be good to see some kind of ordering of notes in a section. Even if it was just a simple sort option by created date, updated date and alphabetical

Feature Request- I would recommend you allow recording and writing to occur at the same time.  In my tests  I can only record audio when enabled.   This functionality is supported on the MS windows version of course.

I don't have the beta version (I suppose..) but I downloaded the plain version from Android store.
Excellent application. One point that can be improved is startup time:
Each time that I invoke the app, it takes some time for synchronisation. This is not good if I need to take a quick new note. In this case I need immediately a blank new note ready for input.
Do I miss something?

My version is 15.0.3930.1007 +Ayush Rastogi
It was updated last night, and now the UI becames responsive in a shorter time.
I was always able to interact while the sync was going on, but at the first call of the app, I had to wait for the first sync to complete.

I was having trouble signing in on the Beta Versions, after clicking Sign In OneNote jsut got stuck on "Connecting" with the spinning circle forever. Eventually I left the beta and installed the regular version so I could sign-in. I'll try to upgrade to the beta again and see how it goes.
