Google Keep is getting better on the web and mobile.
How many times have you found yourself with a great idea, but no easy way to jot it down for later? Or maybe youâ€™ve got lots of notes scattered around, without no central spot to find them. Having a single place to capture whatâ€™s on your mind and save your ideas and to-do lists is what Google Keep is all about, and today’s updates give you a few new ways to collect and manage the information that’s important to you.
Keep is ready when you are
The next time youâ€™re on a website that you want to remember or reference later on, use the new Keep Chrome extension to add itâ€”or any part of itâ€”to a note in Keep. Just click the Keep badge to add a siteâ€™s link to a note, or select some text or an image and create a new note from the right-click menu.
Same goes for Androidâ€”you can now create a note while youâ€™re browsing or tapping away in other appsâ€”without having to open Keep. Just open the â€œShare viaâ€ window and choose Keep to create a new note.
Organize your thoughts with #Labels
One of your top asks has been for a way to organize and categorize notes, and now itâ€™s as easy as using a #hashtag. This should help you keep track of to-do lists for a #trip or a collect your favorite #recipes, for example.
Youâ€™ll also notice that some of the menus have been moved around to group similar options together, as pictured below.
So whether youâ€™re researching a project at work, putting together details for your Science Fair submission, or collecting inspiration for your upcoming home renovation, give these updates a try on the web, or with the Keep app on Android and for iPhone & iPad.
