Google launches Google Keep note-taking service

Google has just launched a new note-taking service called Google Keep that lets you write notes, create checklists, enter voice notes or snap photos and annotate it.


Google Keep is basically like Evernote but with Google spread out across it, so a Google account is required so Keep can sync your notes on your desktop and mobile devices. Below is a list of features:

• Keep track of your thoughts via notes, lists and photos
• Have voice notes transcribed automatically
• Use homescreen widgets to capture thoughts quickly
• Color-code your notes to help find them later
• Swipe to archive things you no longer need
• Turn a note into a checklist by adding checkboxes
• Use your notes from anywhere – they are safely stored in the cloud and available on the web at

Google Keep is a handy service with a very clean interface. It has a Google Now feel to it with very organized colorful Post-Its.


Google Keep is available on Google Play for devices running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and above. You can access, edit and create new notes on the web at and in the coming weeks you’ll be able to do the same directly from Google Drive.

    wonder how many days till Google decides to shelf this ala Wave & Reader?

  8. How long would it take for google to shutdown this new service. After what happened to Google Reader, I’m avoiding or transferring w/ the same services they provide.

    • stop using android and any other google services for that matter.
