Google Keep gets social, lets you share your notes with other users in real-time

Google Keep, the primary note-taking application for Android users, has received a big update which has just been detailed by its developers. This new version of the software makes it a truly social experience by allowing users to share their notes with others who can make changes to them in a real-time fashion.

This is something we’ve already seen on Drive documents and other Google products, but Keep having been infused with the change will make for quite an interesting experience for regular users of the app. To add to this, a Material design overhaul was also issued to the utility a few days ago.

The sharing feature on the newest version works in quite a simple fashion, and there’s not even a download required for it to start working since it’s a server-side update. When you enter a particular note of yours, the regular options on the top bar will be accompanied by a new one which will let you share the note with others by entering their credentials.

And that’s not all that’s new in Google Keep; the addition of filters is one more thing that the developers have detailed in their blog post. Once you have too many notes in your account, searching for one them can become a tedious affair, which is when you can filter them by factors like color, whether they’ve been shared or not, whether they have a reminder or not and more.

Like we said, this update for Google Keep has been pushed by the company as a server-side change and not via the Play store, so the new changes should be available to you without any download. The new features moreover, are also available on the web and Chrome versions of the utility.
