New Office Updates: OneNote app enhancements & Skype more places

Office 365 Home Premium debuted just a few weeks ago, and the first set of updates for the new Office has already arrived.

First, a newly updated OneNote Windows Store app adds new inking features (for handwriting on a tablet or other touch screen), the ability to open notebooks on Office 365 for businesses and a few fixes as well. You can read more on the OneNote blog.

Second, you can now call more places with Skype. As part of Office 365 Home Premium or Office 365 University, every primary subscriber gets 60 minutes of Skype per month to call landlines and mobile phones in select markets, and now, they can use those minutes to call 23 additional countries.
