Google Keep aka Keep Notes is one of the most popular note-taking apps on Android, and it’s about to get rich text formatting… finally. This follows the code that was found last week, which claimed that rich text formatting is on the way.
Rich text formatting is coming to Google Keep, you should have access to it soon
Google now flat-out confirmed that the feature is coming, in a blog post. Google says that this was a “highly requested feature”, and that it will enable you to “customize and add emphasis to your text through bolding, underlining, italicizing, and heading styles”.
If you’re wondering whether the feature is available already, well, chances are it is not. Google said that it will be rolling out to Android devices “in the coming weeks”. So we’re not sure if the rollout started yet or not, but we didn’t get the option yet.
The rollout has probably started already
It’s possible that Google started rolling it out already, but it will take weeks to arrive to everyone. That’s how the company sometimes does things, via staged rollouts, so…there you go.
Back in March, Google added multi-instance support for Google Keep on large devices. A single note widget has also been added back in March. And now, an ever bigger change is coming in the form of rich text formatting.
Needless to say, this will be a game-changer for some, as it’s giving you the ability to really emphasize parts of your notes, and organize them properly. Google says that this was one of the most requested features, and that’s not difficult to believe.
One thing to note in all this is that Google emphasized that the feature is coming to Android. So iOS devices, and the web version will likely have to wait a bit until they get rich text formatting.
