And these apps are really popular among Android users seeing their number of installs and ratings on the Play Store.

The new update of OneNote brings the app version to 16.0.8827.2090. The new features that come with this update are app shortcuts, Office Lens and phone number sign in. All of which are most welcoming as they all come real handy in various scenarios.

And the Office Lens integration helps users to scan a document using the camera of the app and save it from within the app itself. And last but not least, the phone number sign in will be helpful if you forget your password in any case.
