Searchable images (with one click!)
So next time you're reading a fascinating article while waiting at the dentist's and the hygienist finally calls your name, just take a picture of the page. Then, with one click, you can turn the image into readable text and finish it at your leisure.
Meet search categories
When you click on the search bar, you can search Google Keep by note type.
This is really handy if you've used a particular tag a lot of times as it helps you narrow down the results.
The search by things function is particularly interesting. It uses natural language search to figure out each note's context so you can search by categories like Books, Movies, or Recipes.
Exploring the Google Keep Chrome Extensions
Wouldn't it be great if you could add some extra-special functionalities to Google Keep so it fits your unique note-taking style?
You can, with a few select Chrome Extensions.
1. Google Keep Web
Google Keep Web launches Google Keep into a separate browser tab. This is super handy for accessing your notes fast.
If you don't want to use an extension to do this, you can just add Google Keep as a bookmark in your browser and gain fast access that way.
2. Google Keep Chrome Extension
The Google Keep Chrome Extension is a quick and simple way to save notes while browsing. With it, you can clip notes as you browse the web and save them to Google Keep.
Just click on the chrome extension and make a quick note without ever leaving your browser.
3. Category Tabs
The category tab extension adds all the category tags to the top of your Google Keep.
This is handy if you want to quickly access all your notes from a single category.
4. Input Tab
With the input tab extension, you can format to your notes by using the tab key.
While this isn't something I've used, if formatting is important to you it's worth trying it out.
5. Fullscreen notes
This is useful if you're working on a small-screened notebook or laptop.
6. The Google Keep Pin Tab
Make the most out of Google Keep
With these tips and extensions, you can make this handy note-taking app from Google even more powerful.
