Journal, a Microsoft Garage project, is an app for Windows that invites people who love to journal to pick up their digital pen, express themselves quickly, and evolve their ideas. Of all the different methods of device interaction, digital ink is unique in the speed and degree of natural expression and in aiding memory. With Journal, disparate ideas can be connected, drawings can be sketched, annotations can be freely inserted, information can be located with search, and you can easily connect your ink across other apps to grow your best ideas. Journal provides an ink-first solution that delivers new AI, intuitive gestures, and connected experiences for Microsoft 365 for work and school (subscription required, sold separately) . It’s designed for people who thrive when writing out their ideas, notes, and sketches. The Microsoft Garage is an outlet for experimental projects for you to try. Learn more at
