We reported earlier that Office 2019 will not be offering a new version of OneNote 2016, choosing instead to replace that app with OneNote for Windows 10, a modern UWP app.

“Beginning with the launch of Office 2019 later this year, OneNote for Windows 10 will replace OneNote 2016 as the default OneNote experience for both Office 365 and Office 2019. Why OneNote for Windows 10? The app has improved performance and reliability, and it’s powered by a brand new sync engine (which we’re also bringing to web, Mac, iOS, and Android).”Microsoft’s William Devereaux explained.

Now Microsoft has started pushing out a new version of the OneNote app for Windows 10 (version 16001.10325.20023.0), which includes the new Office 2019 menu design.

Upgrading OneNote 2016 to OneNote UWP has not been welcomed by everyone, but Microsoft has said that OneNote users will have a choice to continue to use the old app and could, in fact, use both the UWP and desktop app side by side until they are ready to switch.

The updated menu appears to be in A/B testing and is not available to everyone at present. Have any of our readers received the new look? Let us know below.
