Google Keep, the Android app that provides a central location for all your ideas, has recently been updated. The interesting thing is that the updated Google Keep app lets you share lists with others. So if you created a shopping list for example, you can easily share it with your spouse, your roommates, your parents, and so on.

“Sticky notes on refrigerators were once the preferred way to say, 'We’re out of bread - could you pick some up?' Now with Google Keep, not only can you jot down ideas or put together shopping lists, you can also share them with friends and family and work on them at the same time. So next time you create a list, share it on Keep and watch as items get checked off in real time! No need for text messages back and forth—get things done together, quicker,” explained Software Engineer Ken Thai.


The updated Google Keep app also makes it easier to search for notes. The app does that by allowing you to filter notes according to various attributes – by color, list notes, shared notes, notes with a reminder, notes with images, and so on. By being able to easily filter your notes you are able to more easily find the notes you’re looking for.

Google Keep – Main Features
  • Note-taking functionality – write down ideas, thoughts, notes, and other things of the sort. Instead of typing, you can take notes by speaking into your smartphone.
  • Lists – you can create lists and you can share lists with others.
  • Images – you can take photos and attach them to notes.
  • Online management – access, edit and create new notes on the web at; archive or delete notes when you no longer need them.
