Google Keep Gets A Lot More UsefulBy: Chris Crum - August 21, 2013
Google is launching an update to Google Keep, which includes Google Now reminders and a new photo note option.
You can select the “remind me” button from the bottom of any note, and choose to be reminded based on time or based on location. For time, you can add a specific date and time or a more general time of day (like “tomorrow morning”). For locations, it will start suggesting locations as soon as you start typing.
“Of course, sometimes plans change. If you get a reminder you’re not ready to deal with, simply snooze it to a time or place that’s better for you,” notes product manager Erin Rosenthal. “It’s now even easier to get to all of your notes using the new navigation drawer, which includes a way to view all of your upcoming reminders in one place. And for people who want more separation between their home and work lives, the drawer also lets you easily switch between your accounts.”
Users can also now utilize their existing photos for notes on Android. When you use the camera icon, you’ll have the option of selecting a photo from your gallery.
The update is rolling out on Google Play, and is currently available in the Chrome app.
