How many times do you browse the internet, find something interesting, and then (within a matter of minutes) forget all about it? If you ever thought you needed a simple way to take notes, you’re not alone. That’s why Google Keep may be just what you’re looking for.
How to use Google Keep to take notes while you work
What does Google Keep do?
Google Keep is a simple tool, but that’s what people love about it! Once you download it, you can create a title and start taking notes. It really is this simple to use.
You may have heard about it previously (or its biggest rival, Evernote). But, Keep is a bit unique in the features it offers, and the tool makes it possible for users to easily create and track notes.
You can use it on your personal computer and any device using iOS or Android. If you use it with your Google account, it will sync to your account for easy access. Do this through this Chrome extension.
So what can you do with it?
Once you download Google Keep and open it, you’ll find it easy to get started. But how can you benefit from it? Use it for just about anything, including planning your to-do lists, meals, work ideas, project notes, and so on. Once you start using it, you’ll appreciate how easy it is to make it work for you.
For example, in a matter of seconds, you can color-code your notes. That way, you can easily move through them to find exactly what you are looking for. Keep allows you to change the color easily so you can just link similar topics. For example, you can keep all of your meal ideas in one place with a single color. You can also label your notes, which then allows you to browse through all notes with the same label.
Google Keep is full of other features, too. For example, you can create a to-do list for a project with little boxes next to each item. Check them off as you go — and you can even share them. Why not send that to-do list to your spouse so they’re on top of the tasks?
This feature is also fantastic for work collaboration. Plus, you can set up reminders, so you’ll receive a notification when something needs to be done. You can also customize your notes with images, memos, voice messages, and much more.
As you can tell, this is the type of note-taking you want to do but don’t have time to do. Google Keep is simple, and you’ll love using it once you get started.
