'Google Keep' iOS Notes Now Integrate With Google Docs on the Web

Google has integrated Google Keep notes into Google Docs, allowing users of the Google Keep iOS app to drag-and-drop their notes directly into online documents.

With Google Keep for iOS, users can input notes, lists, photos, and voice memos, set reminders about notes, and organize their note collections with labels and colors.


While in Docs on the web, users can now access the Keep notepad via the Tools menu. The new integration means users can copy their Keep notes into Docs and create new Keep notes right from inside Docs (accessed via the web, not through the Docs app), after which they will sync back to the Keep iOS app.

Google has offered some tips on making the most of the new feature:
Here are a few ways you can now work better with the integration between Keep and Docs:
  • Drag your notes from Keep directly into your work documents

  • Easily search your notes in Keep while in Docs to find the information you need to complete your project

  • Add a new note in the Keep notepad or select text from inside of your document and easily add it to a new note (just right click and select “Save to Keep notepad”). When you open that note in Keep, we’ll include a link back to the source document so you can always refer back to it.
Google Keep is a free download for iPhone and iPad available from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Didn't see it mentioned in the article but this is only available as part of GSuite. Regular Google accounts won't have this capability.

Well that sucks....

Nothing wrong with that. Google makes some great apps and their services are some of the best.

How come I have it then? I have a regular account with Google.

I just got home and tried it out and it works on a regular Google account. Just after fooling around with it this will be a killer feature. I now can move off of OneNote which I keep on a local work Win10 notebook which ties into the company MS license agreements. If I can use this new combo instead and have it on my Google account via the web, that data tie to me. Being in sales, this is a great new feature. I will test it out tonight, but it looks promising.

However, I do have a bitch about Google and privacy overall and prefer my data tied into my iCloud account. Hopefully Apple will make the improved notes app have a reminders function with the share sheets or embedded in the app itself. Even better yet is to add a tagging feature that is iOS feature. More thoughts later.
