Not many users may be familiar with Google Keep, which is a note-taking app, due to the increased popularity of other similar apps like Microsoft’s OneNote, or Evernote. However, that doesn’t mean that Google is just going to relent and allow its competitors free reign in this market.
The company has recently announced that Google Keep has now become part of the G Suite business-friendly apps. This means that G Suite users will be able to facilitate their workflow thanks to the great features of the newly added note-taking app by easily writing downs ideas, reminders, checklists, writing your daily to-dos, and overall just taking whatever notes you want.
If this isn’t appealing enough, Google Keep has also received Google Docs integration as part of the overall inclusion into the G suite family of apps. This will allow users to easily drag and drop their Keep notes directly into work documents. However, this new feature is currently only available on the web version of the service, and it also requires users to first load and open Docs in the browser. Once you do so, the Google Keep notes will be displayed in a special sidebar in the Docs interface.
This neat new feature allows users increased productivity and the management of their work, by easily transferring ideas and meeting notes into official documents. The feature works for all notes, including checklists and images.
Furthermore, the Docs integration also means that you will be able to search all of your Keep notes directly from the Docs interface, and add new ones while you’re still working on a document. This can be done by selecting the “save to Keep notepad” from the right-click option. Using this feature will automatically add a link to Keep, which will send you back to the source document.
Google decided to integrate Keep into its G Suite of apps and increase its functionality as a way to expand beyond its current user base and appeal directly to all current G suite owners, who might be using other note-taking apps.
Keep is currently available on all on both iOS and Android, Chome or as a web app.
