Now you can talk into your go-go-Google watch and dictate your thoughts right into Microsoft’s OneNote note-taking app.

Microsoft announced the release of its free OneNote app for Android Wear wearables in a blog post today.

To use the app, you’ll need one of those new watches and an Android smartphone booting up version 4.3 or newer, Nick Barnwell from the OneNote team wrote in the blog post.

Although Microsoft has repeatedly demonstrated its willingness to deliver its apps across mobile platforms, it’s still a surprise to see the cross-platform application development focused on Google’s trendy new wearable initiative.

No word yet on whether OneNote is coming to Apple Watch.
