More than a year since we first saw the preview, Google Keep for Android has finally introduced the text format.
Update August 24th . Google has officially announced a rich text format for "New Vault Notes" and existing notes will receive it "in the coming weeks."
This much-requested feature allows you to customize and highlight text with bold, underline, italics, and heading styles.
To date, we have yet to see its implementation: it is
- available to all Google Workspace customers and users with personal Google accounts.
Original value: 17 August . Text format implemented after activation earlier this week (via Mishaal Rahman). Once it appears on your device, you can click "New!". Formatting text in new notes" homepage: "Extend your new notes on Android with text formatting. It will also be activated for existing posts in the coming weeks." The
Annotations toolbar displays a new underlined 'A' after the 'Advanced' and 'Background' options. A panel will open starting with Heading 1 (H1), Heading (H2) and by default "Aa". Bold, italic, underline, and strikethrough are then drawn. The formatting is pretty standard and in line with other text editors. Text formatting is rendered in real time with Google Keep 5.23.322.05 This version is not yet widely available
on the Play Store, but there is a server component that makes it available. We don't see it yet on some of the devices we tested today. Note that this will be available first for
new entries and then for existing ones. The sign-in message only applies to the Android app. It
was always intended as an option for users who wanted it, but one of the attractions of Google Keep is its simplicity. We expect text pasted from other sources to display correctly.
