Microsoft Sticky Notes updates for everyone with dark mode, faster syncing

After a little over a month of Insider testing, the latest update for Microsoft Sticky Notes on Windows 10 is now ready for primetime. Coming in at version 3.1, the update brings two main attractions: a dark mode and faster syncing.

The main highlight, dark mode, is an expansion of the "Charcoal" note color that Microsoft initially shipped in version 3.0. The dark mode will respect your Windows settings, or you can independently turn it on or off within the app.

Here's the official rundown of what's new:

  • We tested the waters with the Charcoal Note, and you all seemed keen to go even darker! Introducing full-on Dark Mode support in Sticky Notes. We support Windows Dark Mode as well as the ability to set your color mode in Sticky Notes to suit your mood independent of your system settings.
  • Everyone seemed excited about Sticky Notes syncing, so we spent some time making it even faster and more reliable! Check it out and let us know how it feels.

This follows the big overhaul Sticky Notes got with version 3.0, which introduced syncing across devices and added a new hme for notes. Sticky Notes are also now accessible on the web through the online version of OneNote.
