Big Microsoft Sticky Notes update teased, coming to Skip Ahead Insiders 'soon' (Updated)

Sticky Notes may not be the most high-profile of Microsoft's Windows 10 apps, but it's a handy little tool nonetheless. And if you're among its users, it looks like you have a big update to look forward to.

Reza Jooyandeh, the Engineering Manager for Sticky Notes at Microsoft, recently teased a big update to version 3.0 will be headed to Windows Insiders on the Skip Ahead ring soon (via MSPU).

Jooyandeh didn't provide any more details, so it's unclear what Microsoft has in store for the utility. However, the bump to 3.0 may portend a relatively big refresh.

Most recently, Sticky Notes picked up a slight refresh to its menu, bringing a more elegant design for the color picker and some other slight tweaks to the settings cog.

While Skip Ahead Insiders will be the first to get a look at whatever is new, you can give the current iteration of Sticky Notes a go at the Microsoft Store now.

Updated August 15, 2018: While we still don't have a full look at what's coming, Jooyandeh recently followed up his initial tease with a preview of one big new feature: dark mode for notes.

Updated August 22, 2018: Jooyandeh has been gradually teasing new features, including accessibility improvements and more, on Twitter over the last week. But he saved some of the best for last. Sticky Notes 3.0 will sync your notes across devices and you'll be able to keep things a little more tidy with a new home for all of your notes.
