Google Keep could be up for a powerful upgrade that will bring new features to allow users to create drawings on their notes and add annotations in photos.
Google’s note-taking app has been updated to v.3.2.415, and while the update for Android appears to mostly consist of bug fixes and performance improvements, a recent teardown by Android Police of the update reveals Google Keep is about to receive major new user-facing features.
Drawing mode will allow users to scribble in their sketches and doodles to their notes instead of typing in the text. We imagine the feature will be well used by users of devices that come with their own stylus, such as Samsung’s line of Galaxy Note phablets. According to the teardown, drawings can be made from scratch or as annotations over existing images.
To add a drawing, users will have to tap on the Add drawing option that will appear in the overflow menu. There will also be an option to edit a drawing once an image or a drawing is already open in Google Keep.
