Google Keep is an app that lets you easily create notes on the go. Since it syncs your notes to Google, you can access them virtually anywhere: on your Android device, through a Chrome app, and on the web.

Note: You can easily create notes by adding one of the Google Keep widgets to a Home or lock screen. The Google Keep widget displays your existing notes and provides a quick way to create a new note, and the other Google Keep widget allows you to easily create a new note from a Home or lock screen.

Note: Some Settings, Menus, or Icons may differ from that of your device, this article should only be used as a general reference.

When you open Google Keep, all active notes that you've created are displayed. To rearrange them, touch & hold a note and drag it to a new location.

You can view your notes in single or multi-column view. Google Keep displays multi-column view by default, and it modifies the text in your notes to fit that view. To switch to single-column view, touch Menu > Single-column view.

To switch to another Google Account, touch the Navigation Drawer icon  in the top left corner, then touch the account that's displayed. You can add additional accounts from your device's Settings menu.

    • Add a quick note - Tap Add quick note and start typing. Tap Done when finished.

    • Create a Photo note  - Choose to take a photo, or include an existing photo when creating a note within the Keep app. Tap below the image to add text.

Note: When you finish creating a note, tap the Keep icon  in the top left corner to save.

To remove the photo or audio, tap the Remove icon  to the right of an audio file or on the photo.

  4. To view archived notes, touch the Navigation Drawer icon  in the top left corner, then touch Archive.

  5. To unarchive a note, touch & hold it, then touch the Unarchive icon  . You can also touch Menu > Unarchive while editing a note.

Use the Google Keep app to add time and location reminders to new and existing notes. You can set reminders in two ways:

  • When creating a note or editing an existing note, touch Remind me  at the bottom of the note and edit the reminder details.

  • Touch & hold an existing note, then touch the Reminder icon  at the top of the Keep screen.

You can only add one reminder to a note.

Keep displays a notification reminder at the top of the screen. Swipe down from the top of the screen to view the notification or choose to be reminded later. Touch the notification to open the original note.

If you use Google Now, a card appears to alert you of the reminder in the Keep app. Swipe the card away to dismiss it.
