2. Set up multiple accounts in Google Keep for Android
If you want Google Keep notes for different areas of your life to be separated, creating multiple accounts is the answer.
To do this, you can set up different Google Accounts. For example, you can create an account for one company and another for your personal life. You can then switch between the two accounts from the same browser window.
For more details, visit Google’s Multiple Accounts page, but you should be able to select your profile in the upper right corner and select Add Account.
3. Google Home Screen Widgets
Some devices will allow you to place a Google Keep widget on your home screen or even a locked screen. This makes it even easier to create a new note from a home screen or even a locked screen, or displaying information in key notes such as task lists or other reminders.
4. Send notes to Gmail using “Note to Self” for Google Keep
You may know already that you can voice the “Note to Self” feature of your Android device, using Google Now, to send a given voice note to Gmail. Here is an interesting workaround allowing some users to send the note to Google Keep.
You can reset the default “Note to Self” command by selecting Settings — Apps — Gmail, and then, for default launch, select Clear Defaults.
Now create a new note, say “Ok, Google Now” then “Note to Self”. You can then change this note and choose a new destination from other installed apps, including Keep.
5. Archive or restore notes in Google Keep
You can drag notes out of the screen to archive them in Google Keep. Archiving is different from permanent deletion. Archived notes remain in Google Keep, but remain in the background. If you change your mind later, just go to the menu (top left) and look into the archive, where you can restore a note to the main page of Keep.
6. Change language settings in Google Keep
You can change the language settings in Google Keep by changing the language of Google Drive. Click your profile image in the top right corner of the web interface, for example, then account, then languages. The image shows how the interface language has changed to French, but note that the notes do not change from English.
7. Consider Beyondpad to develop Google Keep
Consider Beyondpad if you like the Google Keep interface. You may want more bells and whistles, namely:
- Drop-down list and more options;
- Options for unique marking;
8. Consider Google Keep for Wear OS
To combine mode and productivity, consider using Google Keep on a Wear OS device (formerly Android Wear). This type of solution can also be adopted to your phoneAndroid.
