All users of OneNote on Android will now notice a new feature inside the app. Indeed, the OneNote Android app recently picked up Office Lens functionality and other bug fixes in the latest update.

Along with the usual performance improvements, the Office Lens feature is added to version 16.0.8827.2090 of the OneNote application. Users can now scan, copy, and rotate photos, documents, whiteboards, and business-cards directly from OneNote by pressing the camera button icon on the bottom of a notebook.

Additionally, similar to the beta version of the app, users can now press and hold the OneNote icon to quickly create different kinds of notes. Microsoft also lists in the changelog that there is no longer the need to remember a password, and you can now sign in to OneNote on Andriod with just your phone number.
