google keep

Google has just announced some added functionality that will make Google Keep more useful. It has gotten deeper integration with Google Now to give folks reminders when they need to complete a task. For instance, Google Now will remind you about your grocery list kept in Google Keep whenever you walk into the grocery store.

You can add reminders for any of your notes, and they can be either time-based or location-based. For dates, you can set either specific up-to-the-minute times or set it for general day (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) Google Keep will also allow you to switch between your accounts more easily, something Google has been making a point to address in all of their apps as of late.

Last but not least, adding photos to a note in Keep will now allow you to easily choose between taking a new photo right then and there, or selecting one from your gallery. Of course, Google’s new “roll it out in stages” fetish rings true here just as much as anywhere else. Be on the lookout for it in the Google Play Store over the course of the next few days.
