Google Keep for Android and Chrome can now remind users of things like important tasks by both time and place.
Google announced on Wednesday that its note-taking app is able to work with Google Now to remind users of - for instance - their grocery lists whenever they walk into grocery stores. Just select the “Remind me” button from the bottom of any note and set the type of reminder.
There are time-based reminders for a date and time (or even general times like evening and morning), and location-based reminders that are easy to auto-fill due to suggestions from Google Keep. Google said users could even hit snooze on their reminders.
To complement reminders, Google Keep has a new navigation drawer. It serves as a way to view all upcoming reminders in one place and even lets users switch between accounts like business and personal. Google has likely added reminders and the navigation drawer in a bid make its simple note-taking app more relevant in a space bubbling with similar, feature-packed apps like Evernote.
Finally, yet importantly, Google Keep now offers a way to add photos to a note on Android. Just tap the camera icon and choose between taking a new photo and adding one from the Gallery.
