Google adds Keep to G Suite with Docs integration

Google announced today that it has added its notekeeping app Google Keep to its cloud-based G Suite. If you've got a G Suite-enabled account, you'll now find Keep alongside your other G Suite apps in the G Suite menu. What's more, Google has also added Keep integration right into Google Docs, so you can quickly consult and add note from Keep right into your Google Doc.

This is a smart move by Google, as it fills a void in the G Suite offering which was lacking a quick place for jotting down reference notes, reminders, and images during brainstorming process and beyond. Having the ability to recall those notes right alongside a Google Doc just makes life that much easier.

While not everyone uses notekeeping apps, it's important for Google to continue to expand its cloud-based offerings a growing and competitive space, with Dropbox encroaching with Paper, its version of web-based collaborative docs, and Microsoft's OneNote offering a similar experience for Office 365 users.

  • Image needs fixing in this article. It's buggy
  • Very seldom, practically never, are mistakes fixed including erroneous links and typos. Seems like an editorial policy decision. Like concentrate on what's next. Don't get bogged down. A few editors, like JH, review comments for a short period of time after posting.
  • Google keep doesn't even offer lined paper background for writing .....meh
  • Google keep yes at this moment cant do what One Note Does or Evernote but it is being worked on that I know for a fact as its on the Roadmap.
    I would love to be able to completely leave Evernote so lets see what Keep is like by end of 2017 as well as Inbox, you have to admit the UI is better on Keep than Evernote..
    1. Lets start with a Full Page View
    2. Text Formatting and Time Stamp so many more improvements needed but I will gladly pay the 5 bucs month I pay to Evernote if Keep is Equal and upgrade to Enterprise G suite for 10 bucs a month and unlimited space
