Google Keep to add text formatting after a decade

Google is finally updating its note-taking app, Google Keep, with basic text formats, after nine years


Tech Desk May 13, 2022

Google's note-taking app, Google Keep, is finally adding text formatting which will include letting users italicize, bold and underline text.

Launched in March 2013, the app is getting the much-needed feature after nine years.

According to 9to5Google's APK insight post, the app's version 5.22.182.00 seems to be adding these new features, where icons for each format match the ones used on Docs, Sheets and Slides. Along with italicizing, emboldening, and underlining text, the new version will allow formatting and clearing text as well.

Ever since its launch, the app has only included plain text in the body of the note, but some users still resorted to the app despite its simplicity.

The latest version of the app does not yet include the feature and is not widely available on the Play Store, but it might be rolled out via server-side update.
