Microsoft removes feature restrictions from OneNote 2013

By  | 

Microsoft has freed its note-taking software ‘OneNote 2013’ off all feature restrictions, meaning that OneNote for Windows is now no longer a freemium product.

Redmond had launched OneNote for Mac as a free release in March 2014 and began offering a freemium version of OneNote for Windows.

Previously, users were required to opt for a paid edition of the note-taking software to avail the following features-

• Add password protection to specific sections of the document
• View prior versions of a page via Page History
• Take notes while recording audio or video
• Search for specific words in voice or video recordings
• Embed other Office documents or files directly into notebooks

But now there are no such restrictions levied on the software. The Windows and OS X versions are both free to use. Users can now download OneNote 2013 for Windows 7 and Windows 8 from onenote.com/download and use all its features without paying a single penny.

The Microsoft Office team has a lot many projects in pipeline for this year. The Redmond is developing Office 2016, scheduled for release in the second half of this year, and Office for Windows 10 (touch versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook), also expected to arrive sometime later this year.
