Google Keep adds labels – makes to-do lists easier to find

Google-keep-logoIf like us here at Beginnerstech you like to keep a to-do list and notes with Google Keep but find it hard to search for them due to the inability to add labels, your problems are over.

The new feature is pretty self-explanatory: you can tag files with labels of your choice (such as “Travel,” “shopping,” “grocery,” etc.) to make them easier to find later on.


They’re not exactly folders that can keep things tidy, but tags can prevent you from wasting time finding a list that’s supposed to save you time. In addition to the new labelling system, the updated app now also features recurring reminders, which you can set to nudge you every day, week, month or year.


I find this particularly useful when I have several appointments on consecutive days like, going to the MotD2015 (G+) last week followed by visits to family before and after the event.

You can quickly capture what’s on your mind and get a reminder later at the right place or time. Speak a voice memo on the go and have it automatically transcribed. Grab a photo of a poster, receipt or document and easily find it later in search. Google Keep makes it easy to capture a thought or list for yourself, and share it with friends and family.

Capture what’s on your mind

  • Add notes, lists and photos to Google Keep. Pressed for time? Record a voice memo and Keep will transcribe it so you can find it later.

Share ideas with friends and family

  • Easily plan that surprise party by sharing your Keep notes with others and collaborating on them in real time.

Find what you need, fast

  • Color code notes to quickly organize and get on with your life. If you need to find something you saved, a simple search will turn it up.

Always within reach

  • Keep works on your phone, tablet, computer and Android wearables. Everything you add syncs across all of your devices so your thoughts are always with you.

The right note at the right time

  • Need to remember to pick up some groceries? Set a location-based reminder to pull up your grocery list right when you get to the store.

Available everywhere
